Tommaso and Micol Alfieri have a reputation for distinctive contemporary, yet typically Mediterranean cooking, founded on fresh, high-quality ingredients, skilful preparation and a solid philosophy of food ethics. They will prpare a light vegetarian menu each day, consisting of breakfast, lunch and dinner, with the specific requirements of the xplore participants in mind. All recipes will use only seasonal and regional produce, of a mostly organic or biodynamic origin, specifically sourced from selected local farmers.

For lunch they serve a unique plate composed of three especially digestive creations, for example: zucchini balls, spicy buckwheat&vegetable salad, sweet pepper-basil-tomato salad, followed by a dessert of pear&cheese cake with chocolate flakes, or their special gazpacho with crostini, farmer tortilla and Greek salad followed by a water melon-mint-Macedonia, and of course water, as well as a glass of red or white wine.

Dinner time offers a special meal each day, including: antipasto, first plate, second plate, dessert and a glass of beer or wine. Here are some of their mouth watering proposals for the Evening Feast: Melanzane alla parmigiana / Lasagnetta al pesto alla maniera Ligure / Carbonara di zucchine rinfrescata al limone / Paccheri al pomodoro confit / Involtini di melanzana con tonnarelli al sugo / Patate al forno con salsa barbecue / Zucchine e carote trifolate con semi di sesamo / Caponata / Insalata mista di stagione con verdure di stagione semi vari e citronette / Desserts: Panna fragole e cioccolato / Cialde al pistacchio con ricotta montata e gocce di cioccolato / Crema al limone con lingue di gatto e melograno / Panna cotta al te verde e lavanda.
