The Lampredotto is a dish made ​​from one of the four cattle stomachs, the abomasum . This refined recipe, revisiting of a simple dish of the traditional Tuscan cuisine, combines the rustic flavor of the lampredotto, with the delicacy of the Trapani salt flavored with lavender flowers and of a home made bread, kneaded with pumpkin flowers, turmeric and tarassacum honey.

The name of the recipe, despite the similarity, has nothing to do with the fine French Bordeaux wine, but derives from the name of the chef who drew it up, my friend Francesca Bordonaro. She actually runs a restaurant in the my hometown, Torino, but her cuisine draws inspiration from the regional kitchens of Tuscany and Sicily too, weaving in her dishes tradition and research, taste and delicacy.

Despite of the fact that she is not only a real chef, but she has worked with many chefs with one or more Michelin stars… no fear, this recipe is pretty easy!

This recipe has been selected to contribute to the Expo 2015 World Recipes the global and crowdsourced cookbook gathering the best traditional recipes from all over the world.
