Antonella begins this Taste Experience in the Tuscan hills with a fresh and delicious entrée - a plate of appetizing croutons topped with lard and pears, or tomato infused with fresh onion. This tasty starter has roots deep in the local rural culture, and is a homage to the ancient flavors of the Tuscan countryside.
Next, a traditional first course from the Chianti Valley. We are talking about Pennette with herbs, walnuts and Parmesan pesto, fresh pasta in a sauce that marries freshly picked garden herbs with dried fruit.
As a second course our Cesarina trusts in another Tuscan classic: the chicken Cacciatore, "the hunter's way". A simple but irresistable recipe, with a rich sauce. The meat is browned in a saucepan with onion, carrots and celery, before being scattered tomatoes and a splash of red wine... Simple ingredients that take us back to the farming atmosphere. The whole thing is accompanied by delicious filo pastry potatoes, baked and prepared with vegetables freshly picked from the garden.
To finish, a typical dessert with fresh and delicious flavours, the panna cotta.
