BEANS AND BOTTARGA BOX
To boil beans seems easy, but in order to get an excellent result you should follow certain rules of preparation, discover them with us!
What is included:
Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Contea, Rufina)
Dried Zolfino Bean 500gr 10
Dried ground Bottarga 40gr
Our Recipe Proposal:
Put the beans directly on the flame, possibly in a clay pan: with little cold water, some cloves of garlic and a couple of stalks of fresh sage. Cover the pan with another pan having the same diameter and containing water. The vapor coming out from the pan with the beans will heat the water of the second pan, which you will add to the beans as soon as they get dry (you must pay attention as the water must be added only when the previous one has evaporated, but of course, before the beans stick on the bottom).
Generally prepare the beans takes from 2 to 3 hours.
Beans are done only when they begin to be slightly mashed. Add salt only during the last 30 minutes cooking time. Drain and season them with olive-oil and freshly ground pepper.
Now it’s time to take the Bottarga out of the fridge and grate it copiously over the already seasoned beans.

The Bottega a Rosano:
Rosano is a small village in the eastern Florentine countryside, near to Abbey of Santa Maria (sec X). During his long life this Benedectine Monastery has been an important center of spiritual life and small local trades on the road from Florence to Arezzo. We have found an old photo of the beginning of last century that proves the existence of our shop in the same position of today. Our grandfathers remember that the restaurant service started around 1960.
"This is a classic shop for the Florentine citizen’s excursion in the weekend, travelers love this place for his Tuscan heart that we preserve with simplicity. My family works here from 1989. Our personal story is deeply connected with this place. Lorenzo and Romana, Damiano and Lorella, Matteo, Filippo, Francesco, Sandro, Liliana, Cristina, Michele, Luisito, Franco, Riccardo, Benito, Danilo, Mario are only a few of the ones that work or worked in Bottega a Rosano.
Same of them are still here, same have passed away, all of them made his important part for this special place."
