Autumn has its desires. Promenade at the corner of a wood in the colors of the season, finding wine in Burgundy cellars, oyster tasting in Honfleur ... But sometimes, sitting down to eat enough to awaken our minds to the beauty of a season.
And it's not Michelle della Valle, head of the Sassotondo, that will tell you otherwise. Welcoming address nestled at the edge of the Canal Saint Martin, Sassotondo of these addresses is that it is divided between insiders. Contemporary to sobriety worthy of an artist's studio, open kitchen on the long dining room around a small patio tables chestnut, the tone is set.
Time sharing the intimacy of a dinner or an alcove in good company at table in the back room, is traveling with delight the map that takes us to a Tuscany tradition of combining simplicity and pleasures of life.
The pasta course are in the spotlight, but the head is also exploring the rich features of Tuscany between land and sea card, renewed every day offers a variety of colors and flavors unique ... What about the excellent oven-roasted langoustines accompanying an equally successful pumpkin cream.
Result is puzzling: Spaghetti with clams, artichokes and onions, oven roasted mallard duck and kale, ribs and fried Turbot Swiss chard are all dishes that delight the palate, as the freshness of each product by the perfection in the kitchen.
Gourmets will not deny the wonderful cheese plate consisting of Gorgonzola, Pecorino di Pienza Pecorino allo Zafferano, Parmigiano, Taleggio ... For dessert, the Semifreddo coffee and marsala sauce, and Cannolo cream and rhubarb tiramisu will complete the most difficult to convince.
The whole course with a wine list offering a tour of Italy, Apulia to Campania through Sicily, and Tuscany and Piedmont as well Veneto. A moment of pure happiness!
