Our Cesarina, Patrizia, lives in an ancient farmhouse of the 1800s, between Milan and Pavia. A place called “Il Cason”, destined for production of butter, surrounded by flowers, fruit trees and courtyard animals.
It is here that Patrizia would increase her strong passion for traditional cooking, inherited from an aunt. Her willingness to know the local cuisine, brought her to get close to the elderly country housewives, some of them were “mondine” (female workers in the paddy fields), who taught her how to prepare typical dishes of the zone. Culinary art, for our Cesarina, is a ritual that remakes ancient farming customs, like when cooking the goose during Christmas period was considered a “special event”.
