Chili con Carne

chili con carne

Most mid price restaurants in the Marche offer the  same basic menu. So when you go for a meal you already know the menu – passatelli with mushrooms, tagliatelle with ragu, mixed grill, fillet steak etc. Menus seldom change, they don’t offer a dish of the day reflecting what is in season and living here you sometimes for something different.

One place that does have a changing menu is the Osteria del Teatro in Senigallia. The core menu remains the same but every week there are 2 different pastas and a different main course. On Saturday night the main course on offer was Chili con Carne. This was the first time I had ever seen chili con carne on offer in this region. Marco, the owner told us that a customer had said he would like them to serve some spicy food and so the chef decided to prepare spaghetti with a dash of chili, chili con carne as a main course and a dessert with a chocolate and chili ice cream. Not sure how many Italian customers opted for the chili but all four of us did and it was excellent.
