Summer in the heart of winter: crock of vegetables with extra virgin olive oil

If you have a vegetable garden next to the library, you have all you need.

For Marco Tullio Cicerone, this motto represents the very essence of happiness: a text to meditate on and a dish of simple and authentic flavours to give relief and joy to the body. This same profound satisfaction is offered by the cuisine of Executive chef Luigi Facciotti: carefully sourcing raw materials and creating unusual combinations, the Chef offers  seasonal dishes for rediscovering the pleasure of living in rhythm with nature.

Chef’s recipes: crock of vegetables with extra virgin olive oil

ricette con ortaggi: il coccio di ortaggi impiattato

In our Chef’s cuisine, the past and the present meet in the search for excellent raw materials and in the fusion of traditional and modern techniques.

Today’s recipe is a riot of traditional Italian flavour, which brings to the table the sun of the Mediterranean summer and the enjoyment of evenings spent in the company of good friends.

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 2 zucchini;
  • 1 Puglia eggplant;
  • 1 red pepper;
  • 1 yellow pepper;
  • 4 Cherry tomatoes;
  • 1 Tropea spring onion;
  • Oregano;
  • Parsley;
  • Extra virgin olive oil;
  • Salt;
  • Pepper.


After washing and chopping the vegetables, season them with oil, salt and pepper. Roast the vegetables on the grill or on high heat, taking care not to burn them.

Once cooked, place the vegetables on a plate in layers. To flavour, add oregano and oil between the layers. Finish by garnishing the dish with a few sprigs of parsley.

Experimenting, renewing and reinventing are essential for the Hotel Tritone kitchen: a few ingredients and an untiring inventiveness transform simplicity into bliss.
