Stracotto di Polpo.



Octopus | Capers | Taggiasche olives

A taste of true Mediterranean cuisine: a stew of octopus, tomato, capers and olives. Tender and fresh. Marco Pelizzari – Cappuccini Resort | Franciacorta

“In the Cappuccini Resort’s kitchen we began from a study of tradition to then modify, renovate, balance and eventually create a true marriage of tradition, territory and creativity.”
“Stracotto di polpo comes from an ancient tradition made of slow cooking times, herbs and vegetables from the family garden. Octopus is cooked in a pan and then prepared as if it were a ragu and flavored with capers from Franciacorta and Taggiasche olives.
Recommended uses: as a sauce on pasta, or served with toasted bread, polenta, or roasted potatoes. It lends itself to being served either as part of a main course or tapas.
