What is guazzetto? Come taste what Chef Harvey is cooking up in his kitchen and find out!

From Chef Harvey: “Sneak preview of one of our fall menu items at Siena! Escargot, garlic, parsley, pasta nest and red chili in guazzetto!”

What is a guazzetto? The word guazzetto in Italian comes from the archaic Italian guazzo, meaning literally a ford, as in a shallow place in a river. It’s akin to the English word wade.

In Italian cookery, a guazzetto is a rich sauce made using the main ingredient in the dish. In other words, the main ingredient is “wading” in its juice and its flavor.

Chef Harvey’s knowledge of classic Italian gastronomy, paired with his immense skill and creativity, is what sets his food apart from the rest!

Keep it coming, chef! We love it!
