Description

Patrizia gives us a taste of the ancient farming cuisine of Milan: we start with a traditional cutting board, an Italian sausage appetizer, coppa, polenta (corn mush) and Gorgonzola cheese, toasted bread with lard, honey and hazelnuts.

For the first course, we have baked risotto with duck sauce, a typical dish of the Lombard cuisine. Next, a mixed beef stew, flavored with potherbs, which Patrizia serves with crispy panfried vegetables and homemade sunflower seed bread.

To finish off, polenta cookies, a dessert prepared with various kind of flours and studded with chocolate chips.

  • Cesarina speaks English

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”.
