If pressed to reveal my favorite restaurant in the world, there would be many that could come close but none that could touch Vittorio Fusari’s Dispensa Pani e Vini in Franciacorta.
I wish I had time to recount my meal and conversation with Chef Vittorio in its entirety. But for the time being, these images will just have to do.
That’s a sturgeon pâté atop a tench tartare on a bed of raw tomato, above.
Did you know that Brescia province is one of the world’s top producers of caviar? It’s a fascinating story that I’ll share when I have more time.
The thing about eating Vittorio’s food is that it’s so thoughtful and so wholesome: you feel great the next day even after over-eating.
Thank you again, Chef Vittorio and Silvano, for an unforgettable evening.
Do you know the way to Valdobbiadene? That’s where I’m heading next…
