ROVATO BEEF WITH OLIVE OIL
Ingredients: 1 kg beef shoulder cut; 2.5 l. water; 2 cloves garlic; 2 salted anchovies; ½ small onion; 1 dl Sebino DOP extravirgin olive oil; 25 gr corn flour or fine breadcrumbs; a pinch of salt; 25 gr butter.
In a large saucepan make a soffrit with the butter, anchovies, garlic, and the finely-chopped onion; add the water and salt, then bring to boil. Add the meat, removing the excess pieces that come to the top during the first 5 minutes; cook on medium heat for about 2 hours. Add the oil, then the breadcrumbs bit by bit (or the corn flour mixed in a little water); cook again for 20 minutes, frequently moving the meat to prevent it from sticking. Remove meat from juices, and thicken juices if necessary. Slice the beef 4-5 cm thick and serve with cooking juice, along with polenta or a thick slice of country bread, accompanied by Franciacorta Rosé.

Slice open the tench lengthwise from the bottom, clean and wash. Make the filling with the cheese, breadcrumbs, spices, salt, and parsley; dry the mixture, then stuff tench. Prepare a terracotta dish with the olive oil and laurel leaves, add the fish, cover with some of the dried filling and small pieces of butter, bake at 160oC for about 2 hours. Serve with firm-textured polenta cooked in a copper pan, partnered with Franciacorta Extra Brut.
