Snapshot ot the Day - Chef Roberto Allocca's Laticauda Lamb, Relais Blu, Massa Lubrense (Na)

A must on any eno-gastronomic tour of the Sorrento Peninsula is a visit to Relais Blu located in Massa Lubrense to try the dynamic dishes prepared by Michelin star chef Roberto Allocca.  I did just that earlier this week in a day that I affectionately nicknamed blu Tuesday, due to the amazing blu/blue panorama from the restaurant's terrace of the sea and the Island of Capri.  With all that blu around, one may expect a menu rich with seafood specialties.  It is.  But Chef Allocca has also included several meat items to satisfy  those who prefer to prefer a little turf instead of surf.  Allocca, originally from Irpinia where lamb is key presented his version of a luscious Laticauda lamb dish.  He included a rib whose meat practically fell off the bone, lamb sausage,  and pancetta.  All draped in a ricotta cheese and hazelnut sauce.  On the side, escarole stuffed with roasted pear.

What a marevlous main course!
