The “Panzanella” salad is a beloved summertime dish in Tuscany. Chef Andrea takes inspiration from this refreshing classic in his Tuna tartar, tomato, cucumber, croutons Tuscan style (HK$298), which features a combination of soaked bread croutons, onions, diced tomatoes and cucumber mixed with olive oil and vinegar, and topped with refreshing Tuna tartar and fresh basil.
Felsina’s I Sistri Chardonnay is recommended by Cucina’s sommelier Ms. Ringo Lam to pair with this vibrant dish. Homemade pappardelle with fresh Tuscan sausage, chanterelles and black truffle (HK$428) combines the rich taste of sausage and the delicate texture of homemade pasta, enhanced with the indulgent aroma of black truffle. Lohsa’s Morellino di Scansano makes a superb wine match.
Grilled Wagyu beef M5 T-bone steak, Fiorentina style with Tuscan oil and aromatic sea salt (HK$1,488) is highly recommended by Chef Andrea.
