Spring season in the Italian Alps favors the growth of many varieties of mushrooms. Since Porcini mushrooms are abundant and among the most flavorful, for centuries the area developed recipes that gave great pleasure to the local tables. Luisa Silvia has personally experienced how those simple ingredients where combined and prepared to reach a notable level of pleasure for the palate. This is the reason why this weekend the special will be “IL PASTICCIO” as a way to honor this heritage.
