Risotto with courgette flowers 300 gr. - Casale Paradiso
Casale Paradiso was born in 1984, its passion is very more ancient. The Abruzzo land is its inspiring muse. Abruzzo is a small region between sea and mountains, it contains a synthesis of the perfumes, colours and Italian tastes. Nicola Mammarella is the partner founder and actual Administrator of Society. Behind his experienced and impassioned guide, Casale Paradiso in few years has succeeded in conquering an important place in the European gastronomic panorama.
The basic presupposition of the work of Casale Paradiso is that the nature gives us everything that we need. It is not necessary to add nothing. To be able to cook tasty and healthy dishes it is enough to take what the nature offers us trying to ruin it the less possible. With first quality raw materials it is easy to have first quality products. Chemistry is not necessary, it is enough the nature.
Pane Carasau is a thin and crisp bread made only Sardinian durum wheat semolina, water and natural yeast. Nothing more. Sardinian shepherds' wives have always been in charge of kneading the dough, shaping it into thin, round discs. As the dough starts to rise it is baked once, then each disc is split in two halves which are re-baked separately. This re-baking procedure is called "carasare" - whence the word "carasau" - and it ensures Pane Carasau the longest durability of all types of bread.
