Description

For his Taste Experience, Germano draws inspiration from his childhood memories, starting with the antipasto: crostini with chicken giblets, a paté of chicken livers and hearts served seasoned with parmesan and nutmeg, a family recipe that was handed down to him by his grandmother.

The first course is instead a homage to typical Roman cuisine: grandpa Cesare’s carbonara pasta, a traditional dish based on classic ingredients: pasta, egg, guanciale (pork cheek), pecorino cheese and pepper.

As a second course, Germano serves Roman-style chicken, a simple recipe whose secret lies in being able to prepare it quickly, flash-frying the pieces of free-range chicken with prosciutto, garlic and Roman mint. The chicken is accompanied by a puntarelle salad, the Roman vegetable 'par excellence'.

To finish off, we have an aromatic visciole cherry pie.

“When I would come home, my grandfather Cesare would say, ‘you have no idea what I’ve brought you!’ For me, those words rang like a gift: dinner-time was approaching. Before cooking, my grandfather would put on a white apron and select the ingredients: he would turn on the burners and suddenly the kitchen would be filled with the scent of cooking, and everyone would start getting hungry”.

Our guide Germano, who today lives in the enchanting capital, Rome, in a splendid apartment in the shadow of the famous St. Peter’s Basilica, tells us about himself in this way.

He pleasantly recalls his first steps in the kitchen when he would help his mother in the kitchen at a young age. “Christmas, Easter, each event was celebrated around our dining table and, like every Italian family, we would talk about food while we ate”.
