CELEBRITY chef Aldo Zilli has just launched a new regional feature menu ‘Giro d’Italia’ (journey through Italy) at the award-winning San Carlo Cicchetti restaurant and bar on King Street West.
The Giro d’Italia menu is a fantastic way for us to showcase the variations in local Italian cuisine
Each month, the Giro d’Italia menu will feature a different region of Italy, exploring the culinary specialities unique to that location. The specials menu comprises several strictly authentic dishes crafted from seasonal ingredients flown in from the featured region.
The June launch sees Cicchetti take a gastronomic tour of Aldo Zilli’s home, Abruzzo. This central region stretches from the heart of the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea, covering a wild and mountainous terrain. Known as the greenest region of Italy, Abruzzo has a rich culinary tradition. Here you’ll find sea fare, lamb, kid, locally produced smoked meats, sausages, salamis and some excellent locally produced wines.
July will see Cicchetti journey deliciously through Sicily, San Carlo Group Chairman Carlo Distefano’s place of birth.
Commenting on the launch of the Abruzzo menu, Aldo Zilli said: “I learned to cook with my mamma back home in Alba Adriatica, it’s a charming seaside town where our food is simple; it’s minimally mucked-about. For me the best cooking combines great simplicity with great taste.
“The Giro d’Italia menu is a fantastic way for us to showcase the variations in local Italian cuisine and to continue to do what Cicchetti does best, delicious, authentic food where the quality of seasonal ingredients is allowed to shine through. I hope you’ll come and sample the taste of my home town.”
