“Life is like chocolate”, says our barman Natale Marasciulo: ”The bitterness makes you appreciate the sweetness more…” For this year’s Valentine Dinner at Masseria Torre Coccaro he made up this beautiful bittersweet chocolate apertivo called “Chocolate for Happiness“.
Todi Tagani, chef gardener of Masseria Torre Coccaro and Maizza, explains why and how to cut cactus plants in the winter: “The plants seem to actually long for this kind of treatment: It gives them space to breath and refresh before the next long and hot summer. Another reason to cut them down every winter (while the plants are kind of “sleeping”) is the quality of the fruit: Only well treated, regularly cut plants will develop a big and tasty, juicy prickley pear.”
