Written by CinziaTosini

What is the food like that Italians? Certainly I do not expect to give a response that matches the consensus of all. I will only express my thoughts, that of a woman celebrating the world of flavors and traditions, and daily living, as a companion, the passion and warmth that conveys the food. We are fortunate to live in a country rich productions and creative minds, that allow us to enjoy the many pleasures that make Italian cuisine famous worldwide. Well, I believe that Italians like me love a convivial kitchen made of earth products. A kitchen is accessible to all, that expresses the territory and the people from which it originated.

Friday 6 February was held in The Garibaldi Cantu the final tasting of the 3rd Festival of Cazoeula. Eight restaurants in the race have competed for the prize "Cazouela of Now"For the best dish of cabbage and tomato rib: the triad Canturina. A plate of traditional popular Lombard long history. A typical preparation of the kitchen winter whose name can be found written in different ways: cassouela, cassuola the casouela. Anyway, the recipe has as ingredients pork (ribs and rind) accompanied by cabbage cooked, spices, red wine and tomato concentrate. About, to better digest the cazoeula is advisable to drink before tasting a glass of grappa. Custom born of ingenuity peasantry… big shoes and brain up!

From a te Cazoeula, tomato cabbage and rib, powerful triad canturina!
Ne 'in November, it 'December months are you favorite,
all fields covered with frost in January, ice the cabbage in a furious silent work.
The farmer with hunger and mastery sacrifices the pig.
For you the cabbage has abandoned mother earth, the pig has bowed his head.
The fire burns the casserole blushes. An orgy is consumed in the kitchen: Verza, Cotenna and Costina!
Suddenly comes your lover: the polenta!
Accompanies you on your journey. Excites you!
At the table expectantly awaits the old Monza.
