Cena - La Piola #3

After the disappointing lunch we returned to the ever reliable La Piola for dinner.

For starters, Paalo opts for his favourite - Misto di Antipasto

From top and going clockwise: Insalata Russa - Vitello Tonnato - Artichokes - Tongue with Red Sauce - Baccala with Green Sauce - Herbed Ham with Mostarda and Carne Cruda in the center.
I've gone for a more indulgent selection

Due Uove in Tegame

Two eggs, sunny side up - that doesn't sound indulgent you say. Hmm, what if we add something to it?

Oh hello, my good friend white truffle - it has been too long. So simple but oh so good.

For mains:

Punto di Manzo con patate schiaccata

I think punto di manzo is brisket or at least that is what I think it is after eating it. It's been rolled and slowly cooked - so fantastically tender, it sits on roughly smashed potatoes and bathed in it's incredibly lush cooking juices.

Tagliata di Fassone

Lovely as always - tender and full of flavour - it is perfectly cooked.
