La nostra terrazza su Siena è stata la location del programma Gino’s Italian Escape
Gino explores the timeless city of Siena
This week Gino D’Acampo travels through the spectacular landscape of unmistakableTuscany.
As both a chef and a tourist, he is eager to experience the glorious, timeless city of Siena. Gino is drawn to this unique place, especially its famous sloping Piazza del Campo and its magnificent gothic cathedral, whose beauty leaves Gino mesmerised.
Siena is renowned for its ‘panforte’ – a rich, spiced fruit and nut cake that originated in the area during the 13th century.
Our chef is invited to taste this ancient Christmas cake and although initially apprehensive, Gino is inspired by its exciting flavour combinations. He decides to create his own chocolate version of panforte, on a terrace overlooking the striking cathedral.
