Good Steak in Foiano

 

We discovered this steak sagra a few years ago and really enjoyed the steak.  Then we figured out that they did a Sunday lunch.  This year the weather was just right so we gathered a few folks and off we went.

The nice thing about this sagra for us is that it is easy to get Ben to it and the pavilion where it is held is light and airy.

There were two different choices of steak, the usual thin cut steak from just a basic beef cow or the pricy Chianina (or Fiorentina) beef steak.  We decided to get the pricy one which was cut in front of us when we ordered and given numbers, 74, and 53.  The 2 steaks cost us 35 Euros and were about 2 pounds worth.

This sagra has its own wine with the name of the sports organization that hosts the sagra.

Our friend Allen enjoyed a hamburger.  Not just a hamburger but one made from Chianina beef.

My steak.  The picture was not taken from the best angle.  It was much better than this picture looks.  Both Ben and I brought some home and we got two more meals from these steaks, so 3 meals of steak for two people for 35 Euros was not bad.

This sagra also serves baked potatoes and baked onions.  So easy to do with a big wood fire.  Don’t understand why more sagras don’t serve this.

Of course, Tania and Keith’s very outstanding truffle balsamic and extra virgin olive oil make anything taste good.  Olives will be harvested soon.  Take a look at their site so you will be ready to order  http://www.lartedellolivo.com/
