Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

Recipe For the Biscotti:Chocolate Cherry Biscotti Recipe

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 ¼ cups granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon kosher salt

¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not dutch process)

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled

3 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

¾ cup white chocolate chips

¾ cup dried cherries, chopped

¾ cup pecan pieces

 

Recipe For Garnish:

Recipe Instructions 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the butter, eggs, and vanilla until combined.  Form a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and pour the butter mixture into the middle.  Fold the dry ingredients into the wet until the dough comes together.  Stir in the white chocolate chips, chopped dried cherries, and pecan pieces, transferring to a floured counter top to get the dough to hold together.

For the Garnish: Once cooled, stripe the top of each biscotti with the melted white chocolate

Mia Francesca Trattoria offers an authentic Italian Restaurant experience and  has an extensive wine list  of both superior NewMia Francesca Italian Retaurant Menus - Raleigh, NC World and Old World wines.  Many are from Italy, the largest producer of wine in the world. International connoisseurs often refer to Italy as the “enotria” or “land of wine” because of its rich diversity of grape varieties.

Italian vine-growing conditions are favorable for three very essential reasons:

Customize and create your own unique pizza by selecting our freshest farm-to-table toppings.  Choose from the following fresh vegetables brought in locally for your enjoyment: olives, mushrooms, artichokes, spinach, onion, broccoli, roasted peppers, and eggplant.  You can add fresh sausage, anchovies, or meatballs; select your own cheeses to really make it unique: goat cheese, gorgonzola, mozzarella, Swiss, or fontina.

True to its Roots Italian Food

Of course, our authentic Italian pasta meals are just as delicious! You could select our classic spaghetti and meatballs in our homemade tomato basil sauce.  Our Gnocchi con Pesto features sautéed potato dumplings, basil pesto, pine nuts, chopped tomatoes and fresh mozzarella.  You can even add the following savory choices to your pasta dish: chicken, scallops, shrimp, steak, salmon, and meatballs.

The grand finale of any of our dinners at Mia Francesca Trattoria always includes our delicious Italian desserts.  One divine choice of many guests is our Tiramisu dessert which features espresso and kahlua soaked ladyfingers with lightly sweetened mascarpone cream and cocoa powder. For those who cannot decide which of our tempting and tasty desserts to enjoy, we have assorted dessert platters (designed for sharing among two to ten people).

How did our restaurant get so popular in just a matter of 15 months? Very simple ingredients: a wonderfully eclectic mix of authentic food, great pricing, radiant ambiance, and outstanding customer service.

 

We make everything on our restaurant menu from scratch, using farm to table ingredients—as much as 80-90% of our dishes come direct from local North Carolina farms and the Atlantic Ocean. On any given day we have several farmers’ pick-up trucks delivering tomatoes and other seasonal produce to our restaurant. Under his watchful eyes, Chef Zach scours the local farmers’ markets to select only the finest sweet potatoes, lettuce and apples.

For lunch, enjoy our delectable Pollo Limone at only $13. This is a sautéed chicken breast with a lemon white wine sauce and fresh sautéed spinach. For dinner, try our very popular Pollo Arrosto alla Romano—a roasted half chicken with chili flakes and the mother of all Italian seasonings, rosemary. It is quickly becoming a Capital City Favorite. At $17, it is the perfectly priced dinner entrée.

 

We love week day visits. Mia Francesca Italian Restaurant offers half-priced wine bottle night on Mondays; additionally there are reserve wine specials every Wednesday. Take advantage of this mid-week restaurant special to experience wines served by the individual glass that usually only sell by the bottle.

 

Step back in time with us to enjoy the old world surroundings of beautiful Tuscany thanks to our sky-high ceilings, brick walls and second-level wine cellar. We believe food was meant to be savored and loved the Northern Italian way! Our restaurant’s authentic dishes connect friends and family together in ways that are special and treasured.

 

In doing what our valued customers need and want, our restaurant offers a unique Gluten-Free menu accommodates all of your family and friends at Mia’s table.
