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.

Minestra di farro, verdure e pesce

Minestra di farro, verdure e pesce
Romano Franceschini’s philosophy is quite straightforward: a family run business, women in charge of the back-ofthe-house, local recipes, and adventuring as far as Garfagnana in the search for new flavours. So, here we have this soup made from spelt, traditional grain from the Serchio Valley that has been lately gaining favour. The traditional preparation of this recipe is based on bean purée enriched with prawns, squids and drops of olive oil from Colline Lucchesi.
