This week we are delighted to announce the first of our regional weeks for 2018. We are starting our regional focus on Italian cuisine by introducing a selection of delicious dishes from Lombardia. The week will run from the 8th until the 14th of January.
This region is well known for its rich and decadent cuisine with roots in many different cultures. Sloping down from the southern parts of the Alps and into the Italian lakes, Lombardia lends itself well to rearing meat, and you will find many rich meat dishes in the region. The Lombard cuisine typically uses a lot less pasta than the other regions of Italy, and instead there is more rice, polenta and buckwheat.
Our Lombardia menu features dishes like this rustic Bruschetta con Taleggio e Pasta Tartufata, a deliciously golden Risotto Zafferano e Salsiccia and the famous Ossobucco alla Milanese. You can see the full menu here.
The geography and climate of Lombardia also lends itself really well to making interesting wines and we have found two excellent wines from Lombardia to serve with our menu. The Castello di Cigognola is a soft, pale white wine with a subtle hint of spices. And the “Costa Bassa” Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo is an elegant, oak aged classic red made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes.
