Cristina welcomes you into the lovely city centre of Chieri, a small medieval village full of monuments and places of interest: from the wonderful S. Domenico's church, with its gothic style, to the baroque S. Giorgio's church, to name but a few.
Aside from the tourist attractions, there are also many local dedication you’ve got to try. Cristina serves dishes made with traditional Piedmontese products - such as asparagus and cherries - made with love and passion by a real local chef.
The secret of the Cesarina
«My purpose is to bring back the traditional Piedmontese recipes, many of which have fallen out of use or have been forgotten altogether!». The result? A rich and delicious menu, beginning with an antipasto of 'caponét' - courgette flowers stuffed with meat - , 'lingua al verde' - veal tongue with green sauce - , courgettes stuffed with amaretti and, finally, ‘uova rosse’ (red eggs).
For the main course, a sophisticated nettle risotto, an original dish that is a real family favourite, and a second course of delicious turkey steaks, eggs and courgettes 'in carpione' with a salad dressed in balsamic vinegar on the side.
Finally, one of the great classics of the Piedmontese desserts: an exquisite bunét, a pudding made using cacao and dried amaretti.
