It was also presented with these scoops of lardo fois gras – something new to me. I’ve never had anything like it, but if it’s dusted with black truffle, I guess I can get on board, right?!
The second course was a lightly fried squash blossom with robiola. I always have a large appreciation for squash blossoms – mostly because I’ve never mastered it myself! This one was crisp and light and cheesy and I didn’t want it to end.
Now, the bucatini. You might have seen this picture on Instagram, because I couldn’t wait to tell you guys all about it!! First of all, bucatini is my favorite pasta noodle ever. Second, I’m a sucker for truffles. Put them together?! STOP.
And another overhead shot, because I’m in love. And what’s that on top? It’s a perfectly fried little piece of sweetbreads. Don’t even think about it, just eat it.
So… are you dying to go to Spiaggia now?! Go go go!!
