The Seasonality of Fresh Ingredients
To offer optimal fresh ingredients is an essential starting point. For our idea of catering, that we pursue with the utmost commitment, the other basic requirements are the respect of the product prepared, especially the willingness to offer it only when it is at its best, or in its actual season.
As concerns our choice of fish, rich and always evolving, we offer our guests only the fish from our sea, which is chosen every month by our "chef-fisherman" Mirko Ghelardi on the stalls of fishermen or is taken from its confidence fish-shop in Marina di Pisa, or fished by himself.
The intention is to bring in the historical center of Pisa, a seafood cuisine that respects the absolute excellence of the fresh ingredients offered.
As concerns meat we rely much on the support of local producers, with the intention to propose and promote the local realities, that we consider the best way to invest in and keep alive our culinary traditions.
At La Sosta is not difficult to find dishes with mushrooms or truffles from the famous Garfagnana coming mainly from the nearby San Miniato.
As concerns salami and cheeses it is made a very careful selection to try to bring on the table both "classic" and "small realities" of our region and beyond, because we want always to offer our guests products of high quality.
Our research and our philosophy consider the short chain and free mileage, the best conditions for a sorting of vegetables and fruit selected according to the natural cycle of ripening.
