Ca’ Dario Spotlights Summer Peaches
Ca’ Dario Chef-Owner Dario Furlati has added fresh summer peaches to his menu. Influenced by the rustic home-style cooking served in osterias in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, the chef-driven eatery is offering a trio of summer dishes that spotlight the flavor and texture of this juicy fruit at its locations in Montecito, downtown Santa Barbara, and Goleta.
The peaches are prepared three ways – seared, baked and grilled – in a variety of dishes for fruit lovers. As a starter or a meal, Chef Furlati assembles a grilled peach burrata salad served over a bed of fresh arugula and drizzled with saba grape must featuring notes of grapes, plums and raisins ($18).
A seared oven-baked pork chop served with sautéed peaches in a balsamic reduction ($34) will delight those who enjoy savory tart flavors.
“The peaches offer a distinct flavor and texture to each dish,” said Chef Furlati, who rounds out the trio with a warm peach crumble served á la mode ($10).
