Description

Dinner is made all the more delicious when you've got a view over the stunning hills of Siena - what could be better than a beautiful view and a luxurious platter of bruschette topped with stuffed garden vegetables? This fresh and delicious starter is followed by a delicate chickpea purée, a traditional dish that is delicately scented by freshly picked rosemary from the huge bushes in the farmhouse's garden. 

For the first course, a classic Tuscan dish. Angela serves pici, a thick pasta similar to spaghetti. They are stretched out manually and left to rest in corn flour, before being seasoned with Pecorino cheese and black pepper. 

The Taste Experience continues with a succelent skewer of liver, sausage, pancetta and a cut of local pork. As a side dish, a sizzling pan of crispy potatoes and vegetables. Alternatively, she can make a vegetable pie and a delicious Vannuccio salad. 

The dinner rounds off with a rich dessert; a basket of fresh fruit, a traditional chestnut cake called Castagnaccio, with delicious ricotta cheese balls, or little strawberry cups in ricotta sauce. There are also fantastic caramellised apples or peaches in wine.

  • Cesarina speaks English

“Born from a dream of love and a thought of beauty”: Giovanni Pascoli defined Pienza in that way, town engrossed in the Valdorcia that Pope Pio II transformed from medieval hamlet to pearl of the Renaissance in XV century. Among these sweet hills, offering original and inebriating colors and scents at every season, Angela lives, descendant of a family of little merchants that started dedicating to agriculture from the half of the past century.  

Sitting at her table we can admire a very enchanting landscape and, in the meantime, taste every flavor from the Tuscan country. Simple but tasty recipes, which our Cesarine prepares starting from the ingredients from her own home garden with so much passion.
