Love Italian Life is delighted to announce the nominees for The Best Contemporary Italian Restaurant in The Best Contemporary Italian Restaurant in Abruzzo 2018 Awards voted for by the public.
The shortlisted restaurants will have an exciting opportunity to win a final place in The Love Italian Life 2018 Awards in Dublin on October 11th which is an international ceremony celebrating the best contemporary Italian restaurants and their authentic chefs across Italy, UK and Ireland.
The nominated Michelin Star restaurants in Abruzzo were selected by an independent panel of Italian food and beverage experts excelling in all key criteria including the quality of ingredients, recipe innovation, contemporary Italian cooking techniques, dish presentation and Italian heritage of chefs.
Abruzzo has a superb reputation in Italy for producing some of the finest dried pasta in the country by local artisans which is often served with traditional lamb ragu made with onions and the dried chilli pepper ‘diavolillo’. A local speciality are crepes called ‘crespelle’ which often contains meat sauce. A famous lamb recipe named ‘cacio e uova’ is made with egg and pecorino cheese and when it comes to pork dishes, ‘ventricina’ from Teramo is considered one of the tastiest in Abruzzo which is an incredible pork sausage. When it comes to cheese the region excels in it’s sheep’s milk varieties with ‘scamorza’ and ‘caciocavallo’ being firm local favourites. All food from the region pairs nicely with a bottle of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
