Today I went south, in the Appennini mountains with my friend Mattia (the one with no horns in the photo below).
We went in this beautiful, typical restaurant, the Capanne di Cosola, and we had a plain, chaste and quick lunch…
Starters: cold cuts (pancetta, coppa, prosciutto crudo, salame), one tart with goat cheese covered by a slice of lard, a little round baked cake made with chess and ham, some local mushrooms with vinegar and dried cloves, then a last and wonderful thing made by a slice of eggplant, a slice of tomato, cheese and oregano, all melted together.
Pasta: tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms (you can find plenty of porcini in the woods around there), ravioli with braised meat.
Then we asked if they could prepare some "cappelle di porcini impanate", that is the mushrooms caps sliced, coated in breadcrumbs and fried.
We drank a bottle of Dolcetto, and finished with a couple of shots of a beautiful, dry, grappa made by the owner.
We didn't have any dessert...
