Today the chicken is the most numerous farm animal on earth, its meat is one of the most consumed and will be even more so in the future. It is reared in halls of hundreds of thousands, in intensive systems: five weeks and it turns into a pale slice in a styrofoam tray.
To remind us how a chicken should live – on grass, eating also quality grains, earthworms and insects it finds on its own, raised slowly and without stress, in short: reared with respect – the Osteria Antiche Sere in Turin will offer a traditional Piedmontese menu with some dishes based on meat and eggs from the Slow Food Presidium’s Bianca di Saluzzo hens.
The famers will also be there: Cascina Losetta will tell how they raise their Saluzzo White chickens and the Antiche Sere chef will explain the qualitative differences between the meat of rustic breeds and that commonly found on the market. At the end of dinner, the ice cream made with eggs from the happy hens of Cascina Roseleto!
The dishes will be accompanied by wines from the Piedmont Presidia: Carema wine and Dolcetto wine from the ancient terraces paysage of Val Bormida
35 € (per person) wines excluded. Reservations are required by calling +39 011 385 4347
