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."
