I Love Italian Regional Cuisine - Pairing Latium Cuisine With White Wine

I Love Italian Regional Cuisine – Pairing Latium Cuisine With White Wine


  1. Описание

Подробно описание


Latium is a region smack dab in the center of Italy. And Rome is pretty well smack dab in the center of Latium. But Rome and Latium are hardly at the center of the wine world. As much as I love Italian wine, I am not a lover of Latium wine. The food can be fine. We provide pairings with Italian wine, not necessarily Latium wine.

monngonStracciatella alla Romana ( Egg Drop Soup) is a classic soup made from beef broth, eggs, grated Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. The ingredients are simple, but the preparation can be tricky. Pair this with a Bianco di Pitigliano DOC from Tuscany or the better known Frascati DOC from outside Rome.

You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy a specialty from Rome’s Jewish ghetto, Carciofi alla Giudea (Deep-fried Artichokes). All you need are tender artichokes, a lemon, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Once again the preparation can be tricky. Pair with Frascati.

It’s quick, it’s simple, it’s delicious; Fettuccine Alfredo (Fettuccine in Double Cream). I hope you’re not counting calories. The recommended white wine is Orvieto, the signature wine of the neighboring region of Umbria. Other choices are a Pinot Bianco or a buttery Chardonnay, both Italian of course.

Uova alla Provatura (Eggs with Provatura). Provatura is a popular buffalo milk cheese from Latium. You can substitute mozzarella in recipes such as this. Pairing choices include Bianco di Pitigliano DOC and the local Colli Albani DOC. If you have Provatura and Colli Albani left over, you can cook up Provatura alla Salsa di acciughe (Provatura with Anchovy Sauce) and finish the wine.

Abbacchio alla romana (Lamb Roman style) món ngon mỗi ngày is a Roman specialty, a springtime favorite. Lamb chops, anchovies, garlic, and rosemary are some of the ingredients. If you do it right the anchovies will just blend in. And for pairings, go with a Frascati Superiore DOC. Is Superiore really superior? Sometimes.
