Ravioli Porcini
Wild porcini mushrooms with a simple, yet intense black truffle cream. A native to Italy, the gourmet porcini mushrooms give the dish a strong nutty flavor. And with a high protein content, this is a great meat substitute for a vegetarian dish.

Pollo alla Valdostana
This dish from the Val d’Aosta region of northern Italy combines three classic local ingredients: fontina cheese, prosciutto, and white wine. The bone-in chicken breast is sautéed in butter and stuffed with spinach. A white wine mushroom sauce tops slices of prosciutto and fontina crudo, perfectly embodying the local food traditions of Italy.

Salmone Arrosto
Roasted salmon is rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, high in B vitamins, and a good source of potassium. This health-conscious dish has fresh tomatoes, mixed olives, and a light vinaigrette for a subtle finish.
