Roberta welcomes us into her beautiful old farmhouse in Orciano di Pesaro, an enchanting little town surrounded by the undulating green hills of the Marchigian countryside, half way between the Appeninni mountains and the Adriatic sea. She tells us that her town was built by a group of wandering Carthaginians, who had managed to escape the Roman defeat of 207 BC, and who eventually decided to settle near the Metauro river.
Tired of the hubbub of city, and yearning for a simpler way of life, Roberta and her husband have been living in the area for many years, and have become truly attached to the cultural heritage of the area. They treasure their family cooking secrets handed down from Roberta’s mother and grandmother, and have become experts in marchgiano cuisine. Today, they are here to take us on a deeply personal journey through their local flavours.
