🇮🇹: Ravioli di pollo alla cacciatora con brodo e ribes. A playful take on chicken 🐓 cacciatora with broth and currant. Cacciatora = “hunter style”, a classic Italian dish, usually prepared by braising chicken with a rich savory sauce made up of onions, garlic, and tomatoes 🍅. First mentions of ravioli were found in the 14th century and was served with broth until tomatoes arrived from the New World via the Columbian exchange. The word “ravioli” comes from the Italian riavvolgere, which means “to wrap.” A dumpling which takes many shapes and classified as traditional Italian food. ________________________ Caino is a stone house nine table Relais & Chateux designated ristorante with two Michelin stars 🌟 in the charming hilltop medieval 🏰 village of Montemerano serving Maremma cuisine (coastal area of western central Italy).
