|Castagnaccio with Squacquerone|
Castagnaccio is one of those dishes that have been quite misunderstood with people insisting on serving it like a cake. It really isn't a dessert, which goes a long way in explaining why people don't like it. Here is one of the best ways to enjoy it and serving it with squacquerone was genius - even Paalo who isn't too found of chestnuts absolutely loved this.
|Pappadelle with Venison Ragu|
|Venison Stracotto with Polenta Taragna|
No venison for dessert - a simple apple pastry served with a light custard.
It's interesting that we mentioned this dinner to our fellow Eators, their general reaction was that it would be too much venison and that venison is too heavy and too dominating a flavour. I think this dinner has proved that those thoughts need to be revised.
