cuisine > Our cuisine
We are both
enthusiastic and experienced cooks and
prepare an Italian cuisine nuanced by foreign influences.
Our guests are more than welcome
to eat with us and to share meals which, although based on Italian
culinary tradition, have an added pinch of Belgian know-how!
fruit and herbs that we use are often from our own (organic) garden,
or those of neighbours.
We offer the
rare opportunity to take a voyage around Italian cuisine, sampling
the very best of Italian regional recipes, without moving from

or cooked vegetables, pasta or meats, and even used in preparing
- A large selection of vegetables, raw or cooked,
prepared and presented in a variety of ways
- A host of pasta dishes
(the local pici, of course, but also different sorts of ravioli),
with a whole range of sauces – herbs, mushrooms, fish …….
- Food cooked over a wood fire
- Charcuterie, fish, tripe, stuffed rabbit
- Local cheeses (pecorini)
- Local wines, grappa and the unmissable
vin santo, found nowhere else
- And home-made cakes, pastries and bread too ….
guests are served ‘English breakfast’:
eggs, bacon, charcuterie, cheese, ricotta …..
amply sufficient to provide the energy for a full day’s excursions
