POLENTA’S SCHISOLA WITH SALAMELLA AND TALEGGIO CREAM
In the past with the polenta’s leftovers our ancestors made some little balls that were stuffed with stringy cheese, we offer a modern variant stuffed with salami and served with taleggio cream.
CASONSEI DE LA BERGAMASCA
Typical fresh egg pasta ravioli with a filling of calf meat, fresh salami, sultanas, lemon peel, grated bread, aromatic herbs and amaretti. We serve this dish with a traditional seasoning made with bacon, brown butter, sage and grated Grana Padano.
Savoy cabbage rolls stuffed with: cotechino, grated bread, grated Grana Padano, parsley and eggs. The seasoning is a simple tomato sauce.
Bergamo’s typical cake in the shape of a donut prepared with: butter, sugar, eggs, flour, candied apricots, candied pineapples and maraschino
A small presentation on Bergamo Italy will be part of the evening’s festivities
Bergamo, Italy is approximately 25 miles northeast of Milan and 19 miles from Switzerland and Lake Como. One can taste the influence of this region’s agriculture in the cuisine with the uses of cheese, polenta, and cream. Bergamo has two centers: the Alta (upper-Ancient) city and the Bassa (lower-modern) city, in fact, these up and down sections of the city were the inspiration for the name of the restaurant, Sotto Sopra – which translates to upside-down.
