Versatile chef, restaurateur and Dep regular Dali Chehimi is back in the kitchen with a selection of Italian comfort food favourites. Cacciatore means “hunter” in Italian; in cuisine, it refers to any of a number of rustic Italian dishes prepared “hunter-style”, of which pollo alla cacciatora (Chicken Cacciatore) is the most famous. Made with the ingredients an Italian villager might have most readily on hand in the fall: a few tomatoes and fresh herbs from the garden, some forest mushrooms or seasonal vegetables, olive oil and local wine. The result is a classic of Italian home cooking, and a dish that has become popular the world over.
A Tuscan peasant classic, this white bean and kale soup gets better each time you reheat it — hence the name, which means “re-boiled”. Dali’s version features a rustic vegetable stock of onion, carrots, garlic, and herbs topped with grated Parmesan cheese.
A classic of the Italian repertoire, and for good reason. Chicken simmered with tomatoes, mixed peppers, carrots, mushrooms, black olives, oregano, and white wine; served with egg noodles.
Sicilian Eggplant Stew
Tender eggplant braised with red onions, garlic, capers and olives in a light herbed tomato sauce, served with egg noodles.
Mains come with a light arugula salad with red wine vinaigrette.
One of the Italy’s most renowned desserts, a rich trifle of lady finger biscuits dipped in coffee, layered with luxurious sweetened mascarpone cheese and topped with cocoa.
