Sud Forno Osteria Ciceri e Tria Meal (January 2021)
We are back this week with a new box from Sud Forno's Executive Chef Giovanna Alonzi! This week Giovanna takes us down memory lane to one of Terroni's first restaurants, Osteria Ciceri e Tria, which has now become home to La Bettola di Terroni located in the downtown core at 106 Victoria Street. The Osteria came about when Cosimo Mammoliti's wife and Terroni co-owner, Elena di Maria, dreamed of bringing a little piece of Italy to her Canadian city. She was inspired by the desire to have a typical osteria with quality daily specials at an affordable price in her adoptive home.
This restaurant followed the same tradition as Terroni: simple food, an informal and easygoing atmosphere with a Pugliese influence. Expert gastronomists, who came directly from Puglia to showcase their regional traditions, created the menu. Once seated, guests are greeted with assaggini (small appetizers) just like they do it in Bari (Puglia, Italy).
Even the name of this osteria is 100% Pugliese. Ciceri e Tria is a typical Pugliese dish made up of chickpeas (ciceri) and handmade, hand cut pasta (tria) which you will be enjoying in this meal box alongside other classic assaggini from Puglia.
Like always we'll have fresh Sud Forno bread made by our Head Baker Luca Rotatori and we'll end the meal off with biscottini Pugliesi from our Executive Pastry Chef Armando Palmieri.
Choose the multi-course meal on its own or pair it with a selection of wines from our wine agency Cavinona!
