Pre service chit chat with Michelin starred Chef Pierfranco Ferrara of Il Faro di Capo D'Orso. A splendido location on the Amalfi Coast. It was my first visit, so you could just imagine my stato di anima/my mood. Very shy and a bitnervous. The chef and I talked about the menu, his menu. I mentioned my love for pasta lunga - and also that I noticed that on the menu there was one in particular that gabbed my attention. But with an exception - I'm not a big fan of fava beans.
Maybe that is why I was pleasantly surprised when Ferrara sent out this dish, custom made for me!
Linguine pastificio dei campi con salsa emulsionata di ostriche, caviale royal e polvere d dragoncello.
Pastificio dei Capi linguine pasat with an emulsified oyster sauce, royal caviar and tarragon powder.
The original recipe included fava beans...the chef took them out. Grazie. Grazie...e complimenti!!
