3-course menu (starter, pasta, dessert) with wine included

Your menu
  • Grilled Radicchio Rosso di Verona with anchovies and almonds
  • Baked lasagna with red radicchio from Verona
  • Grilled sweet focaccia with red radicchio compote

Radicchio rosso di Verona PGI is one of the jewels of Veronese horticulture, with a long history behind it: imported from the East before the 14th century, it is sweet and tender, of a beautiful flaming red with very white ribs and can be found all year. It lends itself to countless uses in the kitchen, and my menu proposes three traditional recipes with red radicchio as the protagonist: as an appetizer, grilled and seasoned with oil, salt, parsley, anchovies and chopped almonds; in the first course as a filling for baked lasagna, and finally as a dessert to accompany the "Fogassa su la gradela de Cavajon", recently awarded the De.Co. (municipal designation of origin), as a sweet and slightly spicy compote. Unexpected flavors and colors! I wait for you!

Elena ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin und wir hatten das Vergnügen mit ihr (und ihrem Ehemann Antonio) einen liebevollen und unvergesslichen Abend zu verbringen. Gekocht und gebacken wurden leckere und typisch italienische Gerichte, mit denen wir zukünftig bei unseren Freunden angeben können, z.B. mit dem traditionellen Mürbegebäck der Region von Mantova, der Torta Sbrisolona. Laut meinem Freund Markus war es das beste Geburtstagsgeschenk aller Zeiten! Dem kann ich nicht widersprechen. Es war wirklich großartig :-) Elena è una padrona di casa meravigliosa e abbiamo avuto il piacere di trascorrere con lei (e con suo marito Antonio) una serata deliziosa e indimenticabile. Sono stati cucinati e sfornati piatti deliziosi e tipici italiani, che potremo mostrare ai nostri amici in futuro, come ad esempio la tradizionale pasta frolla mantovana, la Torta Sbrisolona. Secondo il mio amico Markus, è stato il miglior regalo di compleanno di sempre! Non posso non essere d'accordo. E' stato davvero fantastico :-)

"Friends call me 'Archichef', I'm an architect stolen from the kitchen. Architecture and Cuisine are both children of creativity, but supported by a rigid discipline, which is camouflaged by color, flavor and apparent lightness and simplicity. I love recipes popular, those of grandmothers and traditions that are no longer used and I love, at times, to transform them into a new dish, but not too much. My philosophy is to use top quality products, as much as possible at zero km; pasta, homemade bread, pizza and desserts. Most of the fresh products are of own production (vegetables, fruits) found in local farms, or from DOCG, DOP, organic or biodynamic denomination companies."
