Although it is not the most well-known dish, ‘mondeghili’ meatballs, which is in fact one of the great classics of Milanese cuisine, which is why Marcella decides to serve these for her starter: in fact, according to legend 'mondeghili' were first prepared during the Spanish domination of Lombardy, in the 16th Century.
Next, our Cesarina serves a delicious thyme risotto with kale, nuts and Bitto, a Lombardo cheese with an aromatic aftertaste to complete this fantastic flavour combination. For the second course, quail with 'uva moscata' - a very delicate recipe that brings out the quail’s gamey flavour – accompanied with potato, celery and turnip purée.
To finish, Marcella loves serving a traditional Milanese dessert with an original touch: a panettone pudding with cocoa sauce. It’s absolutely sublime!
