Simonetta's Taste Experience is dedicated to dishes of aristocratic cuisine of 1700s. Starting with the appetizer: a refined 'gateau en croute', a rustic potato, cheese and ham pie. We will then continue with the first course: 'ziti' with King Ferdinand meat sauce, a rich dish that is believed to have been a favorite of Bourbon King Ferdinand II. Ziti are long-shaped pasta made from durum wheat, and are typically Neapolitan.
As a second course, Simonetta will bring Corrandina-style meatballs to the table, a recipe originating from aristocratic cuisine, accompanied by delicious sautéed 'friarelli' a delicious leafy green vegetable that is only found in the south of Italy. The meal will end on a sweet note with the queen of the Neapolitan pastry tradition: a 'pastiera' that Simonetta prepares according to her family recipe.
