Buon Ricordo specialities

Each Buon Ricordo restaurant creates a recipe that perfectly represents its local tradition and local produce as the restaurant’s signature dish. This option is on the menu year round and is also represented on the restaurant’s special ceramic plate, which is presented as a gift to customers who choose it.

Note: Buon Ricordo restaurants are proud of their speciality recipes inspired by local traditions and typically Italian ingredients, products and methods of cooking. Unfortunately they are difficult to translate accurately and explain to anyone who does not know Italy and its regional culinary traditions well and even more difficult to cook successfully without the original ingredients. So it has been decided to leave the recipes on this site and in our recipe books in Italian, however we have included a brief description in English of the specialities on each restaurant’s page.

Insalata tiepida di gallina bianca di saluzzo, salsa tonnata e chicchi d’uva

The dish conjures up the local cuisine as any ingredient is watchfully cooked. First, the chicken is a special breed called Bianca di Saluzzo that is a medium-sized hen still bred as in the old days. Its fowl is tender and is cooked only with extra-virgin olive oil of Taggiasca olives - from Imperia district – which has a sweet fruity flavour scented with wild herbs, almonds and pine-nuts. Then comes the tuna fish sauce that reminds the trades between Piedmont and Liguria. This dish is well paired with a red Pelaverga wine from the Cuneo Colline Saluzzesi.
