Mare e Monti, sea food meets mountain food at Siena!
When dining out in Italy, I would always order the “Menu Degustazione” or “Tasting Menu.”
Usually consisting of 3 courses or more it was a great way to sample a variety of the Chef’s creations.
The food was always fresh and seasonal and the portion sizes were never to big or to small. They basically added up to one very satisfying entrée.
Often the Chef would have a theme that ran throughout the courses such as mushrooms, seafood or wild game. Here at Siena we pride ourselves on providing our customers with an authentic Italian dining experience and that includes our Menu Degustazione.
This weekend’s Degustazione is a theme called “Mare e Monti” or “Mountains and Sea”. Tuscany has a very long coastline with a great variety of seafood dishes and as you go inland coastal plains give way to steep mountains and forest filled with wild game. So tonight we have the best of both!
Buon Appetito, Chef Harvey
