Corochinato Aperitivo Wine, or simply Corochinato, is a vermouth-type flavored white wine originating in Genoa, a local version of Piedmontese Barolo Chinato, produced and distributed by the Vini Allara di Pra ‘company [1]. The name itself indicates the origins in the town of Coronata (coro-chinato), from whose hills came the white wine which was the main component of the recipe of 1886. Locally it is also known as Asinello, a name derived from the label of the bottle which shows a drawing of the animal accompanied by the popular figure of Paciugo, protagonist of an 11th century legend set near the Sanctuary of Coronata [2], and is widespread as aperitif, smooth and accompanied by a slice of lemon.

Baccalà con caponata contemporanea by Moreno Cedroni

Thirty-five years ago, two journeys began. The first finished soon at the Cape of Good Hope, where the Indian and South Atlantic oceans meet, combining and yet somehow remaining distinct from one another”.

“The second journey continues to this day, after 35 years—it is Madonnina del Pescatore. When I remember that first voyage, I realize how impressed I was by those masses of water, which filled me with the desire to replicate something similar in my cooking, a meeting, and fusion of two equally powerful forces: creativity and tradition.” On the occasion of Slow Fish, and as a guest of Eataly, Moreno Cedroni will help us to relive those years through a series of courses that trace an amazing Italian success story.

Do what you love …the picture has been taken in Pila (Valle d’Aosta) close to the Alpine Pasture; it is a series from the project De la vache à la fontine.
A surreal calm surrounds these places, which resist the changes of time, proudly continuing with their antique traditions. There are two protagonists in the thousand year old history of the Valle d’Aosta tundra: man and cow. The ancient practice of fontina cheese making is passed down from father to son, and still today solitary and silent shepherds show the next generation, who are now mainly Moroccan immigrants, consequently rewriting history into a genuine multi-cultural society, translates them into richness for man and his land.
Working days repeat themselves cyclically during the season when the cows are brought out for mountain pasture for a period that lasts from May to September, while during the winter they rest in the cowsheds placed down in the dales, where a milder climate and a forage based on hay ensure that the cheese gets that unique flavor and nutritional characteristics. When the milking of all cows ends it’s the turn of milk processing; the milk is put in huge copper pots and the rennet is used to thicken it. After 45 minutes in this coagulation process the milk changes status and you can see lots of lumps, like the cottage cheese. Then this lumpy milk is warmed up to 40°C until it becomes a oft cream. This soft dough is then transferred in circular containers in order to be put under pressure and release all liquids left. Then the rounds of cheese are aligned on wood boards to mature in big cellars dug in the mountain rocks.
Hundred liters of milk are used to make a round of fontina, creating a tight relationship like the one between man and cow…de la vache à la fontine.
