Basilicata: we leave for a tour where wild ingredients and authentic dishes stand out, just like this land.
From the wild horseradish, also known as “poor man’s truffle” to the red aubergine of Rotonda, spicy and bitter, excellent in oil, fried, grilled, to the exquisitely spicy Moliterno canestrato cheese. The pastas are rich, tasty and sunny: strascinate (pasta with turnip tops from Matera and cruschi peppers), gnummareddi (rolls of lamb entrails, liver, lung, heart and sweetbreads tied by a thin natural casing), cod with cruschi peppers, cutturiddi (lamb with onions, tomatoes, bay leaf and rosemary), pignata (mutton or mutton seasoned in terracotta with spicy salami, pecorino, chilli and many vegetables).
Located in the Sassi area, simple but elegant, known for its Chef Carlo Pozzuoli who loves to reinterpret in a modern key the typical local dishes and the flavors and traditions of the past, such as the minestrone with tagliolini with white and black chickpeas, considered ideal for pregnant women, as it contains a lot of iron. The menu devotes careful research of local herbs, such as chicory, sivone used in salads, soups, as a filling for ravioli and pansotti or simply boiled with oil and lemon.
