New menu - the day after. I was sitting with Chef Antonino Montefusco in the dining room of Terrazza Bosquet, next to the window with a spectacular view of Marina Piccola and Mt Vesuvius on the far distance. The chef and I were discussing the new menu and checking out the pics that I had taken the night before. Then we arrived at this set. Montefusco's snapper. His snappy snapper I have decided to call it. Beautiful to look at, fantasticaaa to eat!
Let's break it down just a bit. On the right - snapper. Montefusco's snapper delicately wrapped in a mountain lard crust. In the middle? A pesto made with sea fennel that the chef and his brigade harvested themselves from the nearby county of Massa Lubrense.
A pesto that also included a few almonds as well as pecorino cheese. On top? Snails. To the left, a chili pepper sauce that was ...spicy. No something more....
