Once again the French show a great love for Italy (football aside).
It is since Caterina de 'Medici brought the forks (and a bit of civilization) to the table at the court of her husband Henry II, that we have looked at ourselves a little like this, but love remains. And how. Self Yannick Alléno, multi-starred chef from Pavillon Ledoyen, the three-star restaurant in Paris, has been spotted in Forte dei Marmi, numerous bottles of Dom Perignon these days a Capri. The maison has chosen the island to launch the new cuvée Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010. And he chose Aurora, one of the iconic restaurants a few steps from the square, for the occasion "dressed" in black, directed with grace and elegance by Mia D’Alessio, third generation of owners.
So many beautiful water pizzas (they call them that) welcome, flour, a little yeast, water (precisely), dream mozzarella, chilli and basil and various pizza and champagne pairings specially designed by the chef Franco Aversa. The two versions are memorable with burrata and shrimp carpaccio with lemon zest and the other, with egg, caviar and gold leaf.
Virtually happiness. And while the wine expressed all the delicious freshness and a perfect balance between generosity and acidity (good at Vincent Chaperon, the maison's chef de cave), the idea that bubbles and pizza are a perfect combination consolidated. In addition to a riot of babas served at the end of dinner.
Another unequivocal sign of love France versus Italy is the new one Dior pop up store at the Riccio Restaurant & Beach Club of Capri Palace Jumeirah, the only Michelin star in the world given a seaside club. Among spaghetti with sea urchins and raw fish, you can admire the ad hoc Dior J’adior Capri collection, bags, costumes to be worn in the cabins furnished in the style of the maison.
Do not leave without stopping a few minutes in the temptation room with all the possible sweets of the island and the coast.
That the wait is not too long, otherwise bye bye try on costume.
