Pranzo - La Libera #3

We're returned to lunch again at La Libera.

I'm being predictable but I just love the smoked foie gras here - this time it's been served with an "insalata crocante" - a sort of tempura vegetable salad

Paalo decides to try one of the white truffle dishes - these ravioli are filled with a fonduta - the heat of cooking is enough to melt the interior meaning that once you bite into them, the rich fonduta oozes out - a decadent cheezy burst.

They reach another level when the white truffle is generously shaved at the table - the aroma turning heads to turn.

For mains

An excellent sucking pig

and sweetbread stuffed guinea fowl.

For dessert

chocolate sponge filled with torrone gelato

and chocolate fondant
