Le Cesarine


  • 'Panzanella toscana' 
  • Pici all'aglione (hand-made pasta similar to spaghetti, in a garlic sauce) 
  • Pork loin with fried potatoes and herbs
  • Cantucci (almond biscuits) with Vin Santo

Refined selection of local wines


The Taste Experience begins with a delicious Tuscan ‘panzanella’, a fresh salad made with tomatoes, bread and onions. This humble classic is a much loved part of the local cuisine.

For the first course, we have a first course of ‘pici all’aglione’, thick hand-made spaghetti in a rich tomato and garlic sauce, a celebration of local produce. Elettra serves a second course of tender roast pork with potatoes fried to crispy perfection, cooked in aromatic wild herbs.

Finally, it’s time for dessert. Elettra serves an unmissable classic, dry almond biscuits called ‘cantucci’, accompanied by a delicious glass of Vin Santo, a typical Tuscan dessert wine.

Elettra invites us into her home in the historical centre of Siena, a fascinating medieval town with a rich history. Here, masterpieces of gothic art rub shoulders with the secular tradition of the Contrade del Palio.

Elettra spent several years in Germany, dedicating her time to Italian cooking courses. She has always been particularly fond of her region’s traditional dishes, which help her to feel connected with her hometown wherever she is in the world. When she returned to Italy, Elettra decided to cook using only local and organic products whenever possible, to offer a Taste Experience that truly represents Siena's traditional flavours.

The secret of the Cesarina
I have a handmade garlic crusher from Cortona. It’s just what I need to prepare my ‘pici all’aglioni’, which requires finely chopped garlic cloves.
