What to Expect
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Your experience begins by meeting your host Monica at her home. You will start your evening with a delicious combination of juicy melon wrapped in cured ham. Monica will also offer bread with a special yogurt dip flavored with spices and seeds. Throughout the dinner you can also enjoy the option of a local wine Monica will select to perfectly blend with your meal. When you have finished your appetizers, enjoy one of Monica's starter specialties such as her light and fresh endives served with blue cheese, pumpkin seeds and a balsamic vinegar sauce. Your next course will be a main such roasted chicken drumsticks marinated in a combination of soy sauce, Thai fish sauce and honey that renders the meat extraordinarily tender and moist. For your side you might enjoy turmeric rice that has been cooked with star anise and cinnamon bark and topped with fresh herbs and cashew nuts. For dessert, enjoy one of Monica's signature dishes like her delicious lemongrass panna cotta, and then end your meal with a selection of espresso and chocolates.
