Simonetta begins the Taste Experience with a true classic of Umbrian cuisine, a platter of toasted ‘crostini’ bread, topped with chicken liver paté. This is a delicious starter that is full of flavour, a perfect start to our journey through her local traditional flavours.
Next, for the first course, we have delicious handmade tagliatelle pasta, with a sauce made of pork, sausage, cotechina salami and ham, with a generous amount of tomato. This is the perfect combination to make this an unforgettable pasta dish.
For the second course, Simonetta serves one of her own specialities, pollo all’arrabiata. The meat is brasied in small pieces with tomatoes, before being cooked in white wine, resulting in an exquisite sauce. On the side, we have steamed ‘erbette’ leaves, or a fresh seasonal salad.
For dessert, she serves an inviting ‘Ciaramicola’, a donut made with red Alchermes dough, glazed with meringue and colourful candies.
