The famous egg by Marco Stabile, chef star of Ora d'Aria

It's one of his flag dishes, very easy to do at home

The series of appointments with "The recipes of the great Chefs by Firenzemadeintuscany" starts with a dish full of memories, which recalls the dishes of the feast with chicken and eggs.
Now 9 years after being awarded its first Michelin star, Ora d'Aria continues to occupy a well-deserved place in the list of restaurants that guide the Florentine gastronomic scene.
