The coldest season of the year has arrived in Italy and it has brought with it not only snow, but also many inviting dishes to warm our Ci Gusta customers. We let ourselves be inspired by this time of the year to create a colorful and fragrant menu that will cheer you up even on the coldest days. Are you curious? Read on.
As usual, we love to start with some delicious appetizers made with our soft and delicious Focacce. Mushrooms abound in the woods at this time of year and we know how to make them the most delicious. Our skilled chefs have combined the soft dough of the focaccia with many thin slices of mushrooms to create a tasty focaccia that is perfect to enjoy during a winter lunch.
The Ci Gusta Pumpkin and Gorgonzola Gourmet Pizza is also perfect for this period. Its crispy crust is topped with a velvety pumpkin cream which, thanks to its orange color, brings life to this plate. The sweet flavor of the pumpkin is paired with the robust taste of Gorgonzola, one of the most classic Italian cheeses.
Once you have tasted these rich appetizers, may we recommend trying our Mushroom and Parmigiano Reggiano Pasta. Thanks to the rough surface of our pasta made by extruding the dough through bronze dyes, our pasta is able to hold the creamy sauce made with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and fragrant mushrooms. These two flavors combined together create an explosion of flavor on the palate.
If you are looking for a real comfort food for your winter lunch, order our Crepes Fiorentine. These delicious rolls of thin crepes are filled with béchamel sauce and mushrooms and sprinkled with cheese. This is a warm, creamy meal that will win you over.
Finally, you can’t think of a winter afternoon without wanting to cuddle up with hot chocolate. Thick, and with the intense aroma of cocoa, Ci Gusta’s hot chocolate will delight your taste buds.
If you want to make our hot chocolate even more unforgettable, accompany it with a slice of our Sacher Cake. The soft layers of cocoa sponge cake and the fresh apricot filling will create the ideal combination of flavors to brighten up a cold, gray winter afternoon.
