Barchette di Peperone - Tuscan Stuffed Capsicum

Dina's Umbrian Pate

Fritto di Salvia e Alici
3 January 2017
Lisa Adams who organises the events at Primo Estate was lucky enough to attend a cookery school in Le Marche, Primo Grilli's birthplace. When we opened the first bottle of our new Primo & Co Verdicchio, which Joe Grilli made in Le Marche, Lisa was kind enough to whip up a batch of these delicious fritters to accompany it. We guarantee your guests will clear the plate of in minutes when you serve this simple but tasty starter.

26 August 2020
This popular Italian appetiser takes only a moment to put together and is universally loved by fans of fresh, seasonal produce.
Le Marche Fish Soup
4 September 2013
This is one of Primo Estate winemaker and owner Joe Grilli’s all time favourite dishes from his parent’s home region of Ascoli Piceno in Le Marche on the central Adriatic coast of Italy. Joe says ‘Dishes like this are EXACTLY why we make the JOSEPH d’Elena Pinot Grigio’. The mix of different seafood is key to the success of this dish – in Le Marche there would be at least 12 different kinds! Fresh squid and prawns in the shell are a must. Use firm fleshed fish like flathead, snook, snapper, ling, barramundi, red mullet, fresh tuna and swordfish either filleted or on the bone as you prefer. For shellfish try cockles, a handful or mussels and cleaned and quartered blue swimmer crab. Avoid delicate fish like whiting and garfish.
