Do you know what Samhain is? It is a Gaelic festivity that implies the end of the harvest season, the beginning of the winter and also the beginning of what they called the ‘dark half’ of the year. According to them, every 31st October our world makes contact with the spirit’s world. The former Celtic people use to fear the encounter with evil spirits and they started to wear masks in order to protect themselves. This sounds familiar to you, right? This is actually the root of our current Halloween festival! And in Il Salviatino, your 5 stars hotel in Florence, we definitely want to be a part of this year’s celebration!
Our Chef, Carmine Calò has used all of his expertise (and sorcery!) to design the next Thursday’s Halloween Apericena menu (priced at Euro 35,00 per person, including one drink) that will include the following dishes:
