Carosello Mangio Italiano


Ciao a tutti!

Our first Dinner Expedition of 2017 introduces us to the food of Friuli Venezia Giulia by way of a 4-course menu inspired by Friulian peasant fare, sophisticated Venetian food, and influences from its neighbours Austria, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia.

When: Saturday, 21st January 2017 starting from 1900 hours

Where: Carosello Mangio Italiano, Alte Eppelheimer Straße 50, 69115 Heidelberg

What: We start with “Buffet Friulano” – a generous spread of Friulian appetizers such as prosciutto, cheeses, vegetable caponata, caprese with buffalo mozzarella, grilled vegetables and more – all carefully chosen to balance flavours and textures, simple with complex, raw with cooked.

For “Primo Piatto”, the chef recommends “Tagliatelle di Polenta con Ragù di Coniglio” (polenta tagliatelle with rabbit ragù).

We need to make a choice for our “Secondo” – there is “Filetto di Maiale lardellato al San Daniele con patate al forno” (pork filet larded with San Daniele, served with baked potatoes).  Seafood lovers can look forward to “Seppie in umido con Polenta” (braised cuttlefish with polenta).  If you like both dishes and can’t make up your mind (like me), then the kitchen will serve you a mixed platter of both!  Both mains will include a side of seasonal vegetables as well.

We end our meal on a sweet note with “Gubana con Slivoviz”, a traditional Friulian cake with a swirl of rich dried-fruit-and-nut filling, served with plum brandy.  Coffee is complimentary, and in case your sweet tooth still needs appeasing, there are more desserts à la carte.

Carosello offers a wide selection of Italian wines, including whites and reds from Zorzettig winery of Friuli.  Wine enthusiasts amongst us have the option to pair the first 3 courses (antipasto, primo piatto, secondo) with recommended wines for an extra €8 per person (3 x 0,1L).  Guests may also order individual wines to accompany their meal at a special price of €2,90 per glass.

In summary, Food Explorers may choose from two menus. Water (sparkling/still) is free-flow for all of us.
