One of the most recognizable symbols of Romagna is, without a doubt, the fried piadina. Our Cesarina proposes it as an appetizer, filled with sausage, candied figs and squacquerone, the typical cheese of the area. And, if this mixture of sweet and salty tastes was not enough, here comes another typical dish of the traditional farming cuisine: we're talking about the poached eggs with peas, a match that is as simple as it is delicious.

For the main course, Monica serves tagliolini pasta with ragù sauce or, alternatively, with peas. A variation of the classic tagliatelle pasta, these strips of puff pastry are intensely flavoured and are a staple in the region. The next course is a much-loved classic in the region too: rabbit stew, cooked with a sautéed onions enriched with wine, sage and rosemary. Roast potatoes are the perfect accompaniment.

For dessert, a rice tart with almonds and a fresh squeeze of lemon.

Monica welcomes us in Capocolle di Bertinoro, at the foot of the first pleating of the Appenines, in the middle of the hinterland of Romagna. Some years ago, she decided to move to this little country village together with her husband and her daughter, leaving the nearby town of Forlì.

Teacher and interpreter of the English language, she spends most of her spare time cooking. This is her way of keeping a link to her past, because cooking has always been a family tradition. Monica is particularly inspired by her grandmother, who was the first to show her the secrets of their regional cuisine. Every time she starts cooking, or opens the little notebooks carefully kept by her mother, it is like a taking a step back in time. The tastes of times gone by bring back happy memories of her adolescence, and the Cesarina is deeply commited to keeping these alive.
