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.

Guazzetto di pesci e molluschi dell’Adriatico in pietra ollare

Pietra-ollare is used to make saucepans and pots for slow cooking. This is proved by the Buon Ricordo dish: "guazzetto" - a sort of slow stewing of Adriatic Sea fish and molluscs - that is an extraordinary concentration of taste. The special characteristic of this meal, a recipe of the fishermen, is that it changes every day as its ingredients depend on what fishermen catch and the fish-market offers. This is also an ideal opportunity of enjoying Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi a full-bodied white wine.
