Come on, don't make that face. I swear it was good: Carpaccio of smoked Buffalo mozzarella Dop, marinated squid, grainy mustard, Apples and avocados. How do you understand, is a light appetizer, summer, raw: presents no difficulty because it is a mere juxtaposition of flavors, but they balance well with each other: the fat in the avocado and mozzarella, with its herbaceous note, the acidity and the crunchiness of Green Apple, the salty flavor of the squid marinated in lemon and lime thyme and slight spiciness of mustard seeds. If you love the meals and non-discounted combinations, give a chance to this dish.
