4 Seasons


Fours seasons in Piemonte. From down right: Spring - Boiled Egg with fondue and sparrow-grass # Summer: Flan of basil with tomato cream and mozzarella cheese # Fall: Small fillet of deer with polenta at chestnut # Winter: ...Bagna Caoda... That is pronounced: Bagna Cauda and it's a typical Piemontese Winter dish. It's prepared with anchovies, garlic and oil; slowly boiled for hours is served boiling with winter vegetables. It tastes unique especially this one cooked, another time by Ugo Fontanone of "La Taverna di Fra Fiusch" -- Another good reason to visit Torino ;-)

Quattro stagioni in Piemonte. Iniziando in basso a destra: Primavera - Uovo alla coque con fonduta agli asparagi # Estate: Sformatino di basilico con crema di pomodoro e mozzarella # Autunno: Filettino di cervo con polenta alle castagne # Inverno: ...Bagna Caoda... Che si pronuncia Bagna Cauda ('u' di uva) ed è un tipico piatto invernale Piemontese. E' preparato con acciughe, aglio e olio; bollito per ore e servito bollente con verdure invernali. Ha un sapore unico especie questa preparata, ancora una volta, da Ugo Fontanone di "La Taverna di Fra Fiusch" -- Un'altra buona ragione per visitare Torino ;-)

The presentation is wonderful. I look forward to visiting Torino in the next year or so. Perhaps I can sample all four seasons during a short visit. I could say I'd spent a year in Torino! -:))

Fabrizio, mi hai uccisa !
Credo che mi gettero sul "porc au citron vert et gingembre" che ho preparato ieri sera, anche se non ho ancora dormito.
(Grazie pr il Lingotto).

... e la bagna caoda !
Cinque notti fa è nevicato, quindi è ancora di stagione.
