The taste Experience of our pair of Cesarini starts with a tasting plate of shepherd's cheese, served with some homemade jams and a platter of cold cuts from the Chiana Valley. A typical Tuscan appetizer that combines the freshness of the cheese with the strong taste of the cold cuts, embellishing everything with the delectable taste of the jams.
As a first course, the Pici with Aglione garlic is served, a dish that is rooted in folk culture. This type of pasta, similar to long spaghetti, is seasoned with a simple but tasty sauce made of garlic, tomatoes, vinegar and chili peppers. Afterwards, Alessio and Simone offer us baked pork loin, a cut of pork seasoned with fennel seeds and lightly imbued with Vin Santo, a local liqueur. Part of the gravy of this course is used to cook the roasted potatoes that our pair serves as a side dish along with a fresh garden salad.
To end the meal, a dessert equally claimed by Tuscany, Piedmont and Veneto. We are obviously talking about the Tiramisù, a dessert that combines the flavor of coffee, with the taste of ladyfingers and mascarpone, for a result that is just sublime.
