Italy is known across the world as an endless source of art, good wine, literature and of course its marvellous gastronomy. What a feast when these are combined! Bravo, the result is simply astonishing! In our quest for art we have discovered some truly inspirational Italian dishes that honour four Italian widely recognised poets. Pronto, contemplate this list of this very "artistic" dishes:
Spaghetti all’Ungaretti:Giuseppe Ungaretti was an Italian modernist poet whose famous work relies on the personal experiences of his life. Also, this particular dish was one the poet’s favourites!! This dish has plenty of delicious ingredients such as grated Parmesan cheese, butter, cumin, nutmeg and breadcrumbs. Tasty, isn’t it?As Ungaretti would say “Immensity illuminates me. - M’illumino d’immenso”.
- Lepre alla D'Annunzio: Gabriele D’annunzio was an italian poet, novelist, dramatist, short-story writer whose most famous work was Alcyone (1904), in which he contemplated the smells, tastes, sounds, and experiences of a Tuscan summer and put them in this poetic piece. Besides of being a poetical mastermind, he was certainly not insensitive to the pleasures of the Italian cousine. The poet loved to astonish people with his remarkable “Lepre alla D'Annunzio” dish, where the meat is chopped along with white truffle, lard, veal and pork, cinnamon, basil, pistachios and eggs. And finally decorated with orange blossoms and lemon slices. Such a palate awakener!
