Description

This Taste Experience pays homage to the rural tradition of Romagna: Raffaella begins with radicchi di campo and bruciatini, diced fried pancetta 'alla saba'. The saba, also known as "the honey of Romagna," is a dark syrup obtained by boiling grape must for many hours, and is used to add flavour.  To complete the appetizer, the famous Romagnol piadina with squacquerone, a traditional soft and creamy cheese.

For the first course, Raffaella serves white lasagnette with pioppini mushrooms, broccoli, and pork cheeks, topped with homemade besciamella and a sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano. If in season, this rich first course will be enriched with truffle, the prize ingredient of central Italy. For the second course, there's a savory stew of cabbage, sausage and pork ribs. To end on a sweet note, our Cesarina offers a sumptuous squacquerone cheese mousse, accompanied by succulent caramelized figs, freshly picked from her very own garden.

Raffaella and her husband have renovated an old country house. They welcome us into a striking atmosphere, in the heart of Romagna, to have us savor the dishes of the local tradition. The house is located in a marvelous "middle ground" between Ravenna, historic city of art, and Forlimpopoli, a town famous for being the birthplace of Pellegrino Artusi.

Immersed in Byzantine mosaics and Artusian lands, Raffaella and her husband have rediscovered a profound relationship with nature; they cultivate an organic garden, from which some of the vegetables the Cesarina offers in its dishes come, and organize seasonal events characteristic of the countryside, from the harvest to fruit-picking. 

Despite her young age, Raffaella love to assume the role of the "Azdòra," the queen of the Romagna hearth and home. Her passion for cooking and love for tradition were inherited from her mother, who taught her, from a young age, how to move in the kitchen.

The secret of the Cesarina
My husband and I cultivate with love an organic vegetable garden from which the vegetables I choose for my dishes come.
