One of the most enjoyable things to do when visiting a city is to taste the local food.
The DeCa (Denomination of Ambrosian Cuisine) brand was created in Milan in 2006 with a firm focus on this concept so if you’re looking for a place to try authentic Milanese risotto, you’ve come to the right place!
The programme lists the typical dishes from Milan and the province that are made in such a way as to enhance the local produce using the correct cooking methods and ways of transforming the ingredients in order to certify the eateries that serve Authentic Milanese Cuisine.
Hence, the enterprises that voluntarily undertake to adhere to the DeCA brand make use of high-quality typical and seasonal produce (preferably obtained with traditional processing methods) to guarantee the denominations. They also adopt the original methods of preparing the recipes and they provide customers with information on the main characteristics of each dish to promote the Milanese history and gastronomic culture.
Each DeCA restaurant - identified by the logo affixed to their windows and menus - offers a minimum of five traditional Ambrosian dishes all year round; these vary in accordance to the seasonality of the produce. Furthermore, the members guarantee their consumers excellent levels of hygiene, conservation, processing and administration of the products. So all you have to do now is choose your favourite restaurant from the complete list of 84 venues awarded DeCa recognition:
