Chicken Cacciatore is a very old dish with many regional variances. In Francesca’s version the chicken is braised “hunter style” in a pan with white wine, wild mushrooms, vegetables and fresh basil. She serves it on a soft bed of Polenta. Discover the secrets to cleaning a fresh artichoke and preparing it to sauté Italian style. End the evening with an egg custard, Zabaione made with sweet Marsala wine and served with biscotti.
