|Chef Salvatore La Ragione|
Finally, we both expressed since the chef and I have known each other for a few years, but I have never ever visited him here, at the Michelin starred Ristorante Mamma' tucked away in a tiny little alley near Capri's most busiest piazza.
Here, at a table with an amazing view and a light gentle breeze.
It was a perfect opportunity, then, for the chef and I to make up for lost time. La Ragione sent out four primi piatti, pasta dishes, for me to try.
Take a look!
Gnochetti al profumo di limone con vongole e broccoli..
Potato dumplings, lemon, clams and broccoli greens....
Delicate and profumatissimo!!!
Then, the chef's vermicilli ai ricci del mare...
Vermicelli pasta and sea urchins.
And then, a dish that I tried for the first time a year ago during Festa a Vico- Risotto matecato aglio e olio...
Mussel scented rice, extra virgin olive oil and garlic. I notice this time that the chef added a couple of almonds for a crunchy touch.
Have room for one more? The chef asked.
He was really surprised that I hadn't tried this Chef Gennaro Esposito classic -minestra di pasta mista con crostacei e pesci di scoglio.
Mixed pasta and seafood...
