Although we generally do ok with finding vegan food in Italy, there are things to watch out for. Did you know black pasta is generally colored with squid ink? We also found pork fat in bread sticks and anchovies in tomato sauce. The other difficulty is many that grocery stores are closed Sundays and close by 8:30 in the evening. I am grateful for the international Happy Cow Vegetarian Directory which list vegetarian and veg friendly restaurants and stores. The iPhone app version of the website; Veg Out, is terrific with gps location of veg restaurants and stores right from your phone.
I am really looking forward to Vegan Fest starting on April 27, 2012 for week. It will be nice to have a large selection of vegan food and products altogether in one place!
