The executive chef of Emporio Armani Ristorante has thought of a menu to cook at home: Italian, traditional but with a touch of elegance, perfect for a special day. Here we start with risotto

A menu of Italian recipes, genuine, but with an extra elegance. It is the one thought of the Emporio Armani Restaurant in Milan to be prepared at home, perhaps for Easter Sunday: the executive chef Ferdinando Palomba has rethought his recipes and his creations to propose a perfect menu for a special lunch. Her idea? Start with a beef carpaccio with vegetable pinzimonio, bagnacauda and pistachios, continue with saffron risotto, then serve a plate with baked sea bass with fennel and broccoli puree and finery with raspberry sponge, mascarpone cream, meringue and ice cream with buffalo kefir.
