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.

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.
