Staffolo: Herbal aperitif
What we consider to be weeds is for Carla the wonder of nature; most people used to be unable to afford medicines from the pharmacy and possessed a great knowledge about the wild plants that grew around their homes.
Carla is happy to take you on a tour of her large estate to reveal the secrets of these plants, and then finish with an aperitif and delicious snacks made from Mother Nature's ingredients.
First follows a walk on her property around the house. Depending on the season, she points out the edible wild plants and explains their properties.
After the walk she likes to serve an aperitif with all kinds of snacks, which she prepared with herbs, wild plants and her own flour. For she grows her own grain, which she has milled at a local mill.
Of course she likes to share the recipes.
