Pre weekend in Rome for the Collovati family, also in the name of gluttony and traditional recipes. Already on Thursday Fulvio and Caterina, former world champion footballer with the Azzurri in 1982, and she, a journalist and columnist, had given themselves a dinner for two to “Pierluigi“, where one course after another of fish, they had eaten a few tables away from John Kerry, in the capital as special envoy for the climate by the American president Joe Biden. During dinner, it was Kerry who recognized the former World Champion player and didn’t think for a moment to get up to go say hello.
The mini escape in the Eternal City for the couple has already ended, with a grand finale in beauty Friday in one of the rooftops of the Eternal City that best tell the Lazio tradition at the table, refined while remaining authentic: “Seventh”, Sofitel Villa Borghese restaurant, the charming hotel in the contemporary Capitoline business and luxury tourism district around via Veneto.
To conquer the palates of the Collovati, it was above all the finger food par excellence of Roman cuisine: the rice supplì, but in a version with pecorino cream. The house chef Giuseppe D’Alessio also made a breach in the hearts of both guests with the cooked and raw green asparagus au gratin with parmesan, with organic pochée egg and crispy bacon and, again, with the Tonnarelli cacio e pepe for her, and with the fillet of veal. of saltimbocca alla romana with sautéed chicory and caramelized onion for him. Just some of the dishes of the new spring menu fresh and in the name of healthy and genuine food, to give the champion and lady the feeling of spending a few hours – despite the bad weather – “To the seventh heaven”.
