The second in our series of recipes from the restaurant of Castello di Casole, the Tuscan hotel and restored farmhouses in Siena, Italy, is this fantastic Osso Buco recipe. Enjoy! Soffritto (literally “sub-friend” in Italian) forms the base of many common Italian dishes. It consists of aromatic ingredients sauteed with cooking oil.
Deep in the heart of Tuscany in Italy lies a true gem, Castello di Casole. A hotel surrounded many restored farmhouses to exquisite taste. As you can imagine, the hotel restaurant presents some amazing dishes, and to celebrate Marquette Turner’s involvement in the sale of the properties, we’re also going to share some of the amazing recipes. This panna cotta with chocolate sauce dessert is a “taste” of things to come.
