Description

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.

Alessio and Simone welcome us into their home in beautiful Arezzo, a city of medieval charm hidden away in the Tuscan hills. Their house is right in the middle of the historic center, just a few minutes’ walk from the spectacular Cathedral of Saint Peter and Donato.

In this exceptional setting, we can taste the flavors of the region, accompanied by a classic product of these areas, Chianti wine. The pillars of this culinary tradition are cheese and meat, which are combined thousands of different recipes, all absolutely delicious. In Tuscany, vegetables and local produce are also always plentiful, a testimony to a cuisine rooted in folk tradition.

The secret of the Cesarina
Wine is essential for us: we use it to accompany meals, of course, but also to flavor recipes
