Alessio e Simone A.

Gaiole in Chianti (SI) - Toscana

Alessio and Simone welcome us in their cozy home, in the heart of Chianti, that wonderful corner of land that stretches for almost twenty kilometers, located between Florence, Siena and Arezzo: a soft territory made up of hills and valleys cultivated with vines and olive trees, a fascinating hilly area, the absolute protagonist with its colors, its aromas and its fruits.

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 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.
