Zampone alla lenticchio AUD38

Stuffed Pig's Trotters with Braised Lentils

 

I had a hard time deciding between the tripe and the trotters, both offally good. In the end, I decided that rich tripe would be overwhelming as a main. What followed was a plateful of a single silky, gooey, deboned pig's trotter, filled with a rich sausage, possibly cotechino, studded with raisins and pistachio. Underneath the trotter was a bed of tender puy lentils with a nice bite and nutty flavour. All this was bound together with a rich tomato sauce. I was very glad that the soft gelatinous tendons in the toes was included! The flavours of every part of this dish was intense, from the rich sausage filling with its slight mustiness to the tangy tomato sauce with distinct basil notes, perhaps due to the slightly heavy-handed seasoning to bring out the tastes.

 

 

We'll most definitely be back!
