The sprawling forests in the foothills of the Italian Alps provide fertile ground for many varieties of wild mushroom. For centuries these precious delicacies have been carefully foraged by local villagers, forming a vital ingredient in much autumnal cooking in the Valle d’Aosta region of northern Italy. This hearty dish which incorporates the nutty flavour of wild mushrooms alongside that of the sausage will transport you to a cozy focolàre – the Italian for hearthside – in a chalet on the shores of Lago Blu.
Paired with beautiful burro e salvia (sage butter), the rich flavour of the sausage meat is enhanced by this deeply savoury-tasting herb. As with our mushrooms, rich buttery sauces also form a staple in the cuisine of many northern regions in the colder winter months. Sage, too, can be found thriving in the wild and the perennial nature of its growth means that there is a near-infinite supply available - if you know where to look. This means that this flavour combination has been used in Italian cooking for hundreds of years and our wonderful team have worked hard to strike just the right balance of ingredients to bring to life the sublime alpine experience.
