Sometimes, Central Italy seems like a land lost in time. Natural landscapes and medieval villages, the tranquility of the countryside lifestyle, and the strong traditions that are still alive to this day. Chiara invokes this wonderful atmosphere in her summer menu, preparing some of the traditional Umbrian recipes. First of all, a rich starter, full of cold cuts and traditional cheese, pizza and some delicious bruschettas with tomatoes and basil from the garden. If this entrée seems wonderful, you should taste the main course: the ‘ iriole', a traditional pasta similar to spaghetti, that our Cesarina likes serves with some fresh tomato souce. As second course, Chiara prepares a delicious roast pork leg, with some homemade bread and some garden vegetables au gratin.
To end on a sweet note, a delicious 'crostata della nonna', made with a wild plum jam - taken directly from Chiara's orchard - lemon peel and vanilla pod.
