You are probably still wondering, What is Malfatti? Malfatti translated from the Italian language means, "'Poorly made', 'Mistake '". In this case it is the filling of ravioli with out the pasta. It is a spinach and flour mixture that is boiled and served with a sauce and grated cheese. It is a delicate and filling dish both . The Chilebrown kitchen has tried to duplicate the expertise of Clemente Citonni with un-stellar results.
CLEMENTE CITONNI & ANGIE
Hallelujah!, Clemente and his Daughter Angie have returned to Napa to make their famous Malfatti and other Italian dishes to take home. They have created a space in Val's in Napa. It is only a couple of blocks from the original location. This small kitchen turns out Pasta, Minestrone, Gnocchi, Spaghetti, etc, and sauce too. Everything is 'To-Go' and bringing your own container is encouraged.
FATTED CALF PORTERHOUSE
Tonight, We are having Malfatti and Ravioli accompanied with a Heritage Porterhouse Pork steak from the Fatted Calf. (Only a couple of blocks away). It will be grilled over a mesquite fire. This will be a dinner from the 'Depot Memory Lane'. The only thing missing will be Clemente's Brother telling us jokes from behind the bar!
