Renata Maria

Renata Maria C.

Milano (MI) - Lombardia

 Renata Maria's dinner table is all about conviviality, love of food and good conversation.

Our Cesarina welcomes us into her home in Milan, a stone's throw away from the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, to share her passion and memories of her family's culinary tradition. "As a child I always watched my grandmothers in the kitchen, their mastery and local traditions have always fascinated me as they're so different: one was from Milan, the other Sardinian, but they had the same passion... I can still smell the aroma of figs, apples and quinces from the orchard in Sardinia and can still recall the taste of mushrooms with polenta from the house on Lake Como. These traditions have enchanted me ever since." 

 

Flavours of times gone by

Renata Maria's menu aims to evoke flavours of times gone by, with scents that remind us of convivial places and inns.

For the starter, Valtellina is the queen of the table - Sciatt della Valtellina - round buckwheat pancakes, filled with a heart of melted cheese. Next, we have the classic Pizzoccheri, a dish of ancient origin prepared with a base dough of buckwheat flour that gives this particular 'tagliatella' a typical pastel grey hue. For the second course, Renata serves a dish with a strong and decisive flavor, a comforting dish for cold winter days, the Cassoeula, made with pork and cabbage, served with seasonal vegetables.

The dessert is the a classic choice for feast days or family get-togethers, sweet chocolate salami - served with warm cream for a truly indulgent finish!
