We ate the new My Selection with Bastianich (dreaming of a glass of wine) – Italian Cuisine

We ate the new My Selection with Bastianich (dreaming of a glass of wine)


The My Selection hamburger line created by Joe Bastianich for Mc Donald's has reached its third edition with two new recipes and a great confirmation. The best seller My Selection BBQ is confirmed for the third year without changing the recipe: 100% bovine from Italian farms, sauce based on Red Onion of Tropea Calabria PGI and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI, with seasoned gouda cheese, coleslaw sauce, crispy bacon and salad.
Brand new instead My Selection Chicken Pepper with 100% Italian breaded chicken breast, Pecorino Toscano DOP, salad, tomato, three pepper sauce and bread with sesame seeds and My Selection Asiago DOP & Bacon with burgers of 100% beef from Italian farms, Asiago DOP, salad, crispy bacon, caramelized onion sauce, Caesar sauce and bread with sesame and poppy seeds.

They are already in 600 Mc Donald's restaurants, but we could not miss the opportunity to elbow the crowd that gathered today at the Base in Milan to try them together with Bastianich, just like in advertising. And even if we ate it comfortably seated at a table while Joe tasted them running between a photo and an interview, we can confirm his visceral love for hamburgers. That when he was a child, it was his parents' prize to tell him that he had done well, but also the perfect food to feel a bit more American and shorten distances with others.
Here's how he told us about his two new recipes of the project thanks to which McDonald's will buy 300 tons of PDO and PGI ingredients this year.

In the recipes of the new My Selection we have Asiago DOP and Pecorino Toscano DOP, why did you choose these cheeses?
"Tuscan pecorino because it is pleasantly savory, Asiago because it is sweeter, softer. Both are creamy, dark and ideal for filling a sandwich, but have very different characteristics .

How did they influence the choice of the other ingredients?
«In reality for me the basis from which to start is always the meat. Then come the cheeses, sauces and other ingredients such as bacon .

And what about bread?
«For me, the bread must be absolutely soft and sweet. Bread is fundamental .

Inspired by our new American magazine, we have imagined the perfect match between hamburger and wine, but now we want to know your expert opinion (Joe Bastianich produces wines in Friuli Venezia Giulia).
"The combination of wine and hamburger is something already very loved and explored in America. There cheeseburger and cabernet is a great classic. But I recommend choosing it based on the meat. With a beef burger like the one we are eating now, I suggest a Rosso di Montalcino. With chicken, on the other hand, a good white wine like my Vespa Bianco from Cantine Bastianich .

Self? Yes, but we trust!

How to prepare a Grand Tonic and 5 other cocktails dreaming of the Caribbean


Cognac and exotic bitter oranges meet in the Grand Marnier, a liqueur that is ready to give its best this spring when mixed in fresh and decisive cocktails. Here's how to prepare them

The beauty of classic cocktails is that they take you away from the embarrassment of choice when you arrive at a bar in a club. Gin Tonic, Old Fashion, Mai-Tai and Margarita, are words that come out of our mouths automatically, as if they were part of us, of our language and our desires. Perfect habits to toast, pass in time with friends or break the ice with those we do not know, but also to understand something from the first glance.
Just think of theUnderstanding that automatically takes between two people ordering the same cocktail or the curiosity that leads us to listen to the orders of others while we wait for our drink. And although what we know is perfect to cuddle us and protect ourselves from repentance, the risk of settling in a comfort zone and getting bored is high.
Why not conjure up it by revisiting the great classics? The interesting proposal comes from Grand Marnier, the famous liqueur produced by the company established by Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle in 1827. Created in 1880 with the name of Curaçao Marnier is produced from the union of a great French cognac with the exotic aroma of the peels of Citrus Bigardia, particular bitter oranges read in the Caribbean lands (the orchards are mainly found in Haiti) before complete ripening. It is the sun of the Caribbean to dry them so that they can best release the aromatic oils that characterize them and that will transform the French cognac, with the help of sugar, into one of the most famous liqueurs in the world.
