After a simple but delicious starter of mixed bread crostini and local cheeses and cold-cuts, we make our grand entrance into the Taste Experience of Ligurian and Piemontese tradition. Our Cesarina brings 'frisceu' to the table, delicious fritters of pumpkin blossoms, salted anchovies and olives.

To follow, Sandra makes us 'corzetti', another great Genovese classic. This disc-shaped pasta is cooked with the smallest and most tender green beans and then served with the most famous ligurian sauce: pesto. The result is special to say the least, and incredibly tasty.

In the second course, Piemonte’s flavours make their entrance. Our Cesarina serves us 'vitel tonné', roast veal slices served in a tuna based sauce which also contains mayonnaise and capers. This dish is served cold and is ideal for a Summer meal. As a side dish we have zucchini 'all’aggiada', zucchini which are lightly fried with a handful of sage and garlic, and grilled vegetables.

As a grand conclusion to this menu, we finish with two desserts of classic Piemontese origin: chocolate and hazelnut cake and 'baci di dama' (literally “lady kisses”, a kind of biscuit) and amaretti (almond cookies) from Gavi. Two magical endings to our meal.

Sandra and her husband Ivano made a choice of live some years ago: they left the city and the region of Liguria to move to the countryside. More precisely to the little farmer town of Gavi, in the province of Alessandria, famous for the fortress which dominates the town. This is where our Cesarina has her roots, since it is the place where her grandmother, to whom she was very close, came from.

“With her I learned to cook traditional dishes and recognise the wines of these lands, which my grandfather used to bottle himself”. Today Sandra is ready for her turn to pass own all the secrets of her cuisine, inspired by simple recipes of the area between the regions of Piemonte and Liguria.

The secret of the Cesarina
“I adore sage: with its delicate flavour, it is the ideal ingredient for perfuming any dish”.
