SMACAFAM

The smacafam is a savory dish of the Trentino tradition, which is prepared mainly at the end of the Carnival period. Its name (literally "crush-hungry") refers to the ability of this dish to satisfy the appetite. This is a soft pie to be consumed hot as main dish, although it  can also be coupled with tasty cold cuts, cheese and fresh salads. Do not have rush to eat it the same day, according to the tradition the smacafam is a dish for "ancòi e per doman", that is it is good today but the next day even more.
