The other day, having been busy all day as it is bound to be on holidays (!) we decided it would be better to visit our friends at Solio Italian Restaurant in Shizuoka City, Aoki Ku!
As they serve only slow food it was perfect for relaxation and great food!
Sommelier Mieko Osawa/小澤三江子さん and Chef Takehiko Katoh/加藤武彦さん
As Takehiko is very particular about the vegetables he uses, one ought to have a go at his great bagna cauda!
All local vegetables including some from his own garden!
I never tire of looking at them!
On that particular day one item than Frenchmen cannot ignore was on the menu!
Ris de veau/veal sweetbread with mushrooms in Marsala wine sauce!
Actually both Takehiko and Mieko had just come back from a week-trip to Italy!
They offered us some succulent wild boar and pork salami served with cold confit onion!
Takehiko is also very careful about the fish he serves especially as carpaccio!
Madai/Japanese red seabream from Shizuoka Prefecture!
Pasta is always made with the best and freshest ingredients!
White fleshed fish and spring cabbage linguine!
Might look simple enough, but I can guarantee that the taste is superb!
We certainly never eat what we can make at home, and there are secrets that will never be fully revealed!
