The most important part of Mara's Taste Experience is the use of local ingredients, straight from earth to plate. She carefully selects the produce that she uses with her husband Alfredo.
The menu is made up of recipes handed down from generation to generation, beginning with the antipasto: bruschetta with tomatoes and the crostini toasts that her grandmother used to make, topped with aubergine, tuna, and mayonnaise. Alongside, we have baked 'spianata' flatbread, whose dough contains lard, coarse salt and rosemary.
As a first course: tortelli pasta with seasonal herbs and tomatoes. The tortelli are filled with delicious homemade ricotta, parmigiano and wild herbs.
Next, the second course dishes: fried chicken legs served on a bed of salad or radicchio with fried chicken pieces accompanied by roast potatoes scattered with pancetta and rosemary.
To finish, a Tartaro cake, made from a dough made with flour, eggs, almonds, whipped butter and egg whites. However, Mara's home-made jam from her own orchard is the star ingredient - every year she makes huge batches of jam with her figs, apricots, strawberries and peaches. What a treat!
