Buon Ricordo speciality

Suprema di cappone di Giuseppe Verdi

For over three generations the cooking at Cavallino Bianco has been based on the Po traditional cuisine: fish and game. Nonetheless, the Emilia specialities have played a great part as this restaurant is situated near Parma and Piacenza. In addition, to honour Giuseppe Verdi some of his favourite meals have been recorded local traditional dishes. That’s the case of Capone suprême first tossed in a pan with leeks and sparkling wine; then dished out with finely sliced truffle and flan of courgettes. The recommended wine is the typical Malvasia dei Colli di Parma.
