2013/12/9Brown cattle meat directly from Minamiaso!

Some days ago, our manager Mr. Mikata went to Kumamoto in order to check some ingredients.

First of all, he visited Aso National Park to check about Japanese brown cow.

Cattle born and 
grew up with the clean water and air of Aso are grazing in the vast grassland from April to November.

The meat of brown cattle that grew up in nature, with enough physical movement and eating grass fully bathed in the light of the sun, has a right amount of fat together with the rich unique flavor of Japanese beef, but the main feature is its tenderness.

After this, he went to check vegetables in Ubuyama village in Aso District.

Here, Mr. Masuda of "TerrasseGourmande" (Tasty garden) concern himself about safe soil making process and, fearing the pesticide residue, he decided to open his own field through the forest.

His vegetables are beautiful as a work of art and, as he is not using pesticides and chemical fertilizers at all, they stay fresh even after some days.

Then...the brown cow meat from Kumamoto finally arrived here!!

The brown cow has it’s individual identification number: 1340971715.

In the photo you can see the T-bone steak but we would like you to enjoy also other part like leg, rib, and L-bone steak, all cooked as much as possible in a simple way.

Please, try it together with Mr. Masuda’s vegetable.

Don’t miss the chance to enjoy the original taste of meat but with less fat.

Elio’s special

Crab and mascarpone ravioli with shrimp sauce.

Ravioli mascarpone e granchio con salsa gamberi.

Ravioli stuffed with mascarpone and Ishikari crab from Hokkaido with shrimp from Papua New Guinea is the best match!

Please visit us and try it!


2013/12/9White truffle from Alba have been arrived!

Season finally came: also this year white truffle arrived directly from Alba!

Even if it was still in the box, we could smell the fragrance that came and spread all over the hall.

Chef Germano’s recommended

Uovo al tartufo bianco con crema di asparagi

White truffled egg with asparagus cream

Hot fried egg on Parmigiana flavor asparagus with slices of white truffle from Alba.

Even if simple, it’s a good appetizer to enjoy the taste of the ingredients.

Of course, you can try it with pasta and risotto, as well as with meat dishes too.

Buon appetito my friends!

2013/12/9Elio's special

Elio’s recommended menu

Baked white squid stuffed with herb and dry tomato.

Calamaro ripieno con salsa di pomodori secchi

This is the new sicilian menu from Peppe, new entry at Elio’s family.

It’s close to the Japanese dish called “ikameshi” (boiled squid stuffed with steamed glutinous rice) but without rice!

It is stuffed with bread crumbs and olive, quick baked and then served with potatoes and paprika.

In Calabria it is often used this combination of flavors.

It’s a simple dish but the taste of each ingredient it’s really attractive.

This is just an example of the fusion between Sicilia and Calabria.

Germano and Peppe are now trying more and more to create new different menu.

Buon Appetito my friends!
