Monica invites us into her house in Crocetta del Montello, which is in the beautiful Marca Trevigiana area. It is a bountiful land which sees a harvest of Chiodini mushrooms in August, radicchio di Treviso in the winter months, and in the spring, asparagus. There are beautiful wild forests, known as the “Marca gioiosa” which has many wonderful surprises in store for food and wine lovers. The nearby Valdobbiadene, with its perfectly positioned hills, is famous for its wine.
Our Cesarine is a spokesperson for this region’s produce, although she is originally from Milan. Her love of cooking was passed down by her father, uncle and grandfather, who she loved preparing meatballs and traditional dishes with on festival days. Her exemplary cooking technique played a part when she met her husband, who was blown away by her food. Together, they love travelling and tasting new food wherever they go.
The secret of the Cesarina
My husband and I are passionate cooks, and we always make sure to get our olive oil from Sicily and Puglia directly from their producers. The oil’s taste is absolutely unrivalled.
