Vitello Tonnato...perfect summer dish!

Vitello tonnato is nothing else than veal with tuna sauce, it is served as an antipasto or buffet dish for a party!

Its origins come from Piemonte and is a dish that takes several hours. In fact, the meat needs to be boiled first for about 2 hours, after that needs to cool off and cut in thin slices and put in the fridge where it has to stay for another hour or so before serving, in order that the taste develops fully!

This dish can be served with a nice white wine such as Greco di Tufo!

Enjoy your summer;-)
