After travelling in Tuscany and Umbria, by the beautiful hills of central Italy, I researched new and forgotten flavours of wild plants and local ingredients and the results were amazingly tasty!
So with this inspiration I came up with this menu to bring some of the flavours from my home land and showcase my new creations and style.
