What's New At Casa Sant Anna

News, here is a microcosm of the larger world, scandal , natural disasters, births and deaths we have. Looking across the valley one can tell what is going on and there is a great sense of contact with the constantly changing activities of a farming community. On the other side of the valley, clearly visible we have a herd of Bufalo (Bufalo Mozzarella) During our unprecedented "Siberian Spell" this winter we watched the struggles to maintain them, chaining and unchaining tractor wheels, carrying fodder and heaving heaters into the byres to keep them alive and be warm enough to milk them. It's a life shared.

Joys, come in the simplest of ways, a good shower of rain that makes the ploughing possible. A dry sunny spell in which to pick the olives and knowing that spring is really here when a cacophony of sound announces the arrival of those pretentious creatures, the hoopee birds.

Oh, the scandal, well that would be telling!


Here is a recipe from one of our guests invented from produce from the garden


It was a pleasure ,too, to meet you and to share some wine and wisdom. We are only sorry you had plans for dinner as our “tagliatelli Casa Sant Anna”, made with ingredients from the property, was superb. This photo does not do it justice, but know that it was extraordinary --- because of the ingredients, not the skill of the cook.

 tagliatelli, figs, prosciutto, toasted hazlenuts, cipollini onion, garlic, parmigiano
