Jamie Oliver, the ebullient English chef who knows his way around Italian cooking, has a sort of “second home” in the Chianti region, at the Macelleria Cecchini butcher shop in Panzano in Chianti.
He comes here at least two or three times a year with his family. He’s good friend with Dario Cecchini. And he loves and appreciates the simplicity of the Chianti lifestyle.
He was here a few months ago, during the shooting of his show “Jamie cooks Italy”, in which a very important part was dedicated to grandmothers’ cooking: “Cooking with Nonnas”.
And who has he chosen, if not the “queen” of all Chianti grandmothers, born and bred in Panzano? Miriam Serni Casalini, a real icon of our region, the author of books on Chianti culture and cuisine.
She hosted Jamie with grace and her delightful determination. Keeping a close eye on him while they were cooking some delicious pappardelle.
