Laura S.

Milano (MI) - Lombardia

Milan is a versatile and dynamic city, one of the world’s fashion capitals, and has a local cuisine full of intense and refined flavours. It’s a city that is certainly worth exploring! Laura welcomes us into her beautiful home which looks over the park of Ticello, in a calm corner of the city. 

Our Milanese Cesarina loves spending time in the kitchen, and serves up a sophisticated take on milanese cuisine, surprising her guests with the wonderful flavours of her city. 

Guests at her house should be ready to enjoy some unexpected flavours!

Refined Milanese dishes: from delicate pumpkin to tender beef

Laura welcomes her guests with a special starter, a pie made with pumpkin, taleggio cheese and amaretti biscuits, a highly original (and delicious) combination. 

Next, she serves a delicate and sophisticated first course, pumpkin risotto. She can also prepare milanese tripe instead, for more adventurous guests! 

For the second course, you can choose between two dishes. The first option is an ode to milanese tradition, the ‘rustin negàa’, little ‘twists’ of veal that are breaded and braised in butter and pancetta, before being cooked in wine or broth. The second option is a local speciality ‘ossobuco’ (veal shanks) with polenta. There is also a side dish of seasonal vegetables. You can choose whichever second course you prefer - both are delicious! 

To finish, Laura serves a typical lombardian dessert, ‘pan de mein’, a cornflour dessert with chantilly cream.
