Beef Tartare from Restaurant Raimondi, Lake Como, Italy

There is something very special about Lake Como. Sure George Clooney has made it UBER famous but before it was a hot-spot for celebrity spotting, it was and still is a magical place to visit.

Recently I was lucky enough to call it home for 2 nights with my family. One of the best restaurants I stumbled on was oddly enough in a hotel

Hotel Villa Flori sits on the Western side of Lake Como, offering amazing views ( yes! you were really must go the gym on the top floor and check out the view) but the restaurant really stands out too.

Chef MARCO PEVERELLI of Restaurant Raimondi has cooked for some pretty big celebrities including Robert DeNiro and his risotto ranks as one of the best I’ve eaten in Northern Italy. Bellissimo!

Cut the fillet with knife in small squares pieces and put everything in a container. Season with oil, lemon, chives (sliced thin), salt and pepper.

Compose the meat as an hamburger. Put the meat in a plate and add on the red onions (season with extra virgin olive oil) and capers around the plate.
