WEEK FORTY-THREE MENU: 1/12-1/17
La Festa di Sant'Antonio: Coming Together
Cercina is not a little town or even a village – it is merely a cluster of simple country houses and farms, two trattorias, a tiny grocery store and an 11th century Romanesque church. The main event every year that draws hordes of Florentines to make the trek to this idyllic countryside enclave is La Festa di Sant’Antonio d’Abate, the Feast of Saint Anthony, protector of farm animals.
Every other year, the parade starts at Trattoria i Ricchi, led by a marching band and locals on horseback to the church square where the animals are blessed. La Festa di Sant’Antonio brings everyone together for three days of card games, communal lunches and the local favorite, Il Tiro della Forma / Throwing of the Form. Our menu this week, is a tribute to those memories starting off with Fettunta coi Fagioli. (That, together with aglass of Chianti, is one of the finer things in life!)
WEEK FORTY-THREE WINE: A 94 point delicious Chianti
Tenuta di Nozzole, Chianti Classico Riserva, 2016
Cherry and violet aromas, persistent and rounded flavors of spices and mushroom. Great structure with elegant finesse.
Pairs well with meats and meat pasta sauces, poultry and hard cheeses.
Critical Acclaim: 94 points James Suckling
A firm and lightly chewy wine with blueberry, currant and crushed-stone aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Needs time to soften. Pure sangiovese. New wave. Better after 2020.
EVERY SUNDAY: Fried Chicken Meal
At our little Trattoria in Tuscany we were famous for our "Pollo Fritto," - fried chicken. The Florentines would drive out to visit us in the country on the weekends and we would always sell out. I am proud to say that my American friends and customers (even those from the South!) seem to have also fallen in love with my recipe so I am starting a new tradition. On Sundays I will be frying up my recipe -- this time for the Washingtonians.
Each $29 serving comes with:
* 3 big pieces of juicy and crispy fried chicken (dark and white meat mix only)
* Polenta Corn Pudding
* Summer Garden Salad with my EVOO vinaigrette
* Freshly baked chocolate chip cookie
EVERY SUNDAY: Prime Rib Sunday Supper
Our Sunday night Prime Rib Supper is designed to deliver good, solid comfort food to nurture both the flesh and the spirit. We slow-roast our herb-crusted prime rib for hours, and serve it sliced thick with a rich beef jus reduction and crispy steak fries, fresh salad, rosemary focaccia and our Tuscan tiramisu. We are also offering three tiers of wine that go beautifully with supper. Enjoy!
