Zucchini Saffron Tajarin Recipe
Piera, Cascina Vrona – Monteu Roero
Piera and her family from Cascina Vrona in Monteu Roero have a farm growing all kinds of fruits and vegetables in Roero, even saffron! They have opened up an agriturismo with swimming pool and restaurant which is fantastic! It is like eating at someone’s home. As you know the tajarin pasta can not be missed when in Langhe. Cascina Vrona has been cited various times in publications like The Guardian where their food (made with their own produce) was highly praised. We tried it ourselves and could not believe how tasty this dish was.
What goes together, grows together. This is why we chose the refreshing Arneis from Roero made by Bric Cenciurio.
BRIC CENCIURIO – Roero Arneis (White selection only)
There is nothing like eating fresh fruits and vegetables from your garden. So many of us have zucchini these days and get stuck in a rut. The combination with saffron, makes it the perfect match for our Roero Arneis from the Spring Whites Only Selection from our 2020 shipment. A summer wine with a summer zucchini pasta.
