We meet at lunch time, upon arrival we’ll start with a brindisi ‘cheer’ of Prosecco, together with olives, salami, particular cheeses etc.
After chatting and greeting, we’ll set at the table end the first course is ‘tortellini in brodo’ tortellini cooked in this amazing meat soup done with hen, calf, capon, beef, carrots, onion, celery etc.
After the soup we’ll have the meat (the same boiled in the soup) with mayonnaise ( handmade), ‘salsa verde’ broccoli and artichokes.
In the meanwhile and since a while, the lamb is cooking in the oven…
When we are done with these delicacies, the roosted lamb follows with roosted potatoes and ‘puntarelle’ salad.
When we are done the table is cleaned and fruits and all kinds of Christmas desserts follows: panettone, pandoro and torroni of every kind.
Of course dessert came together with the liquors we use to digest…Amari, mirto and above all grappa.
