Piccolo Mondo is in the midst of a culinary tour of Italy. Every Wednesday night, the Huntington restaurant presents a $34.95 fixed-price menu highlighting one of the boot’s 20 regions. This week: Umbria:
Selection of crostini (Catelluccio lentils, black-truffle butter, chicken liver)
Fava bean puree with scallion oil and aged pecorino
Black strangozzi (rustic spaghetti) with chard, pesto and almond sauce
Brook trout with black-truffle sauce
Involtini of Cotechino sausage and veal over lentils
Ricotta canederli (dumplings) with rhubarb coulis
The price includes two glasses of wine, in this case a white Campogrande Orvieto (Santa Cristina Antinori) and a red Fiamme Umbria Rosso (Lungarotti).
Piccolo Mondo is at 1870 Jericho Tpke., Huntington, 631-462-0718.
