Our Taste Experience begins with a classic Roman starter, an anchovy and romanesco broccoli pie, which brings together the city’s celebrated produce.
For the first course, Claudia opts for another classic of her regional cuisine: bucatini basta ‘alla vitorchianese’. This pasta is similar to spaghetti but with a hollow middle, and holds the sausage and tomato sauce beautifully, which is enriched by fennel seeds and pecorino cheese. Next, we have an inviting dish of roast veal, stuffed with seasonal vegetables. The side dish is a symbol of Jewish-Roman cuisine, salted endives with fennel seeds and tomato. This is all accompanied by a lovely red wine from the local area, which adds a layer of intensity to the Taste Experience.
To finish, we have ‘mostaccioli’, which are candied fruit and honey biscuits glazed with chocolate, accompanied by a sumptuous crème pâtissière.
