1, 2, 3 Fantastic Firsts - Terrazza Marziale Ristorante, Sorrento (Na)

Part two of my lunch at Sorrento's Terrazza Marziale Ristorante starred three fantastic firsts by Chef Eugenio Cuomo and two fresh and flavorful  Campania white wines.

After discussing the menu with the maitre, we decided on...

  • Creamed smoked eggplant with sheep milk ricotta cheese, red mullet, crispy rice, confit tomatoes, thyme and white pepper.

  • Risotto with carnaroli rice in a light lemon sauce.  The lemons used are known as femminello and are from Sorrento.  On top, chopped pressed imperial shrimp, ginger gel, and chervil.

  • Ridged mezze maniche pasta with a fried cod puttanesca pasta sauce (tomatoes, black olives, garlic, and anchovies, capers), and Salina caper powder.

As for the wines?  Campania of course.
