Meat and fruit: an unusual pairing

Meat and fruit? What an unusual pairing! In reality, there are many dishes based on meat and fruit, from the typical dish of ham and melon, or raw ham and figs, to red fruit reductions to be served with game. The idea of ​​combining cooking meat with fruit in the kitchen perhaps reminds us of oriental and overseas dishes but some gems of Italian cuisine offer tasty combinations that create an explosion of flavor that you don't expect. If we then purchase fresh Italian meat from our trusted online butcher, the success of the dish will be guaranteed. Let's discover three meat recipes with fruit: the speed will amaze you and the taste even more!
