Costa to stress authentic Italian cuisine

Costa to stress authentic Italian cuisine

Costa Cruises is updating its lunch and dinner menus to feature more authentic Italian cuisine with help from one of the country’s best culinary experts. Michelin-star Chef Fabio Cucchelli worked with a new team of corporate chefs to update the line’s onboard cuisine, creating 14 authentic regional lunch and dinner menus and 252 new dishes. Onboard, guests will find an assortment of Italian fare. New regional offerings include a fillet of spatola (silver scabbardfish in English) with bread and raisins, served with Sicilian caponata and sweet and sour red onion (from the Sicily region); Gricia-style rigatoni pasta with jowl bacon and Roman Pecorino cheese cream (from the Lazio region); and golden fried breaded pork cordon bleu with potato croquettes and grilled tomato (from the Friuli region).
