PODERE COGNO - OUR CUISINE
has a very strong culinary tradition and its dishes and products (for
example the "fiorentina" -thick broiled steak- the "pappa
col pomodoro" - bread and tomato soup - "panzanella" -
bread, tomato and cucumber salad - "canellini beans", panforte
and cantuccini - typical Senese spiced cakes- the special oil and the
Chianti wine) are famous all over the world. It is amazing that these
ancient recipes had been handed down exactly as they were years ago and
are still up to date, due to the use of the region products.
the hart of all these marvels, we do not intend to compete with the
distinguished restaurants in the region or to propose a local
characteristic inn, but we offer every day home cooking, just as we serve
to our family and to our friends; this is the why we limit our booking to
five tables per day, and require advance notice in the morning for the
dinner in the evening.
