I’m going to take a break from Truxton and Shaw history for my other love, fine dining.
So for Easter we decided to order some food from Masseria, a Michelin starred restaurant. We had the food delivered because both of us have to be home with Destructo-kid or else one of us will go mad.
We ordered the non-alcoholic pairing and that was a good decision. Not only did we get some interesting and tasty drinks, we also got some nice glass bottles.
I’m really enjoying burrata. I’ve had it before from picking up food from Red Hen and also with this meal. We took it out of the fridge (we had to get Destructo to bed and ate after he was down) and let it get to room temperature. There was a ramp sauce that we assumed went with it, and it added a kick to the already tasty creamy cheese.
Next was the Casarecce Verde. We had given Destructo-kid a bit of this. He didn’t eat all of it so we set some aside for left overs the next day. It was so much better the next day for some strange reason. Maybe that was the empty mommy tummy. It was good the day of, but next day, primo. The paired drink, with the smokey lapsang souchong went very well with this.
I liked everything about the Agnelo lamb dish, except the hard chickpeas. This we had to re-heat in an oven, but I chose to go with 6 minutes in an airfryer. The paired drink had sour cherry in it. The Help hates cherry, but he liked this drink. I think the pomegranate over shadowed the cherry for him.
Lastly was the dessert of Zuppa Inglese that I had out at room temperature. The paired drink was a chocolate oat milk thing with candied olive. At this point we were full. I ate half and finished my dessert the next day. The paired drink was like a weak chocolate milk, which was fine as it did not out shine the dessert.
This was very good and I would recommend this.
