This might come across as a little off-beat, but then MATTO is all about classic Italian food with a little mischief on the side. Maybe I am using the word exceptional too early, because there are loads more such ‘exceptional’ items from MATTO’s menu coming your way, but that shouldn’t take away the spotlight from this Tortino Di Carciofi.
Wrapped in filo pastry, this artichoke and asparagus mousse is presented much like a cake, its creaminess intensified with pecorino cream cheese and a drizzle of balsamic on the top. Bringing together such exquisite ingredients and creating such a wonderful dish out of it, this could only be called art.
Next up we will keep it a little basic with one of the all-time favorite Italian classics.
