An undulating landscape covered in colourful fields and enchanting medieval towns nestled high in the hilltops. If you have an image in your head of the ‘postcard’ image of Central Italy, then Lapedona is the place for you. Located at the top of a hill near the city of Fermo, this lovely town is half way between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine mountains.
Daniele’s house is a little outside the town, and is surrounded by stunning countryside. In this wonderful location, our Cesarino serves the best of his local cuisine to his lucky guests.
The secret of the Cesarina
"You can find the very soul of Le Marche in these hills"
For the starter, we have a selection of Le Marche’s delights: Daniele serves a classic panzanella salad, a dish that is often served in the central regions of Italy, which is made with stale bread, red onion and basil. This is followed by a delicious zucchini parmigiana, and a salad of mushroom, cherry tomatoes and shards of young pecorino cheese known as ‘primosale’.
After this rich and varied starter, we have two first courses. First, Daniele serves maccheroncini di Campoglione, which are small pasta shapes typical to the area which are served in lemon and ham. We also have tasty ravioli filled with ricotta and ‘erbette’ leaves, served in a tomato and basil concassé. For the second course, our Cesarino serves rolled roast turkey with frittata, vegetables, cream of carrot and onion, and a fresh salad on the side.
To finish on a refreshing note, Daniele opts for a delicate peach semifreddo.
