Sitting at Monica’s table takes you on a journey through the heart of the Romagna hinterland. Her family’s cuisine, passed down from generation to generation, brings together the most typical flavors of these lands... And we don't have to wait long to see the proof. Monica's Taste Experience starts off with a dish that is symbolic of the region: the fried piadina, to be enjoyed with dried sausage, candied figs and, of course, with squacquerone, the typical cheese of Romagna.

For the first course, Monica serves “spoja lorda”. These little squares of puff pastry have a ricotta cheese, egg and parmesan filling and are cooked in broth. Next comes an inviting beef stew with potatoes: Monica's stew is enriched with a base of onions, tomatoes and diced potato. All is served with baked onions and homemade bread.

We finish off with sweet peaches in Alchermes. A tray of pink 'bignè' filled with custard and chocolate, covered by caster sugar, whose intensely traditional flavours transport us back in time.

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.
