They used goat’s milk to make homemade fresh cheese for the starter; the meat for the wedding pie, with Lucia’s mythical chicory salad.
Thinking of the whole of the goat, Rodrigo Castelo devised a soup from head to toe, using everything the animal provides. The main course is suckling goat roast in the manner of the suckling pigs of Segovia, Spain, traditionally sliced with a shale stone. For dessert, an inspiration from a neighbouring village: bolo finto cake with local medronhos and lemon.
The gastro menu of the restaurant also includes delicacies such as tripe, plangaio (stuffed pork stomach) and bread baked in the wood oven of Figueira.
Ti Augusta maintains its commitment to conserving the habits and traditions of Figueira, by creating flavours and transforming a simple dish into an authentic delicacy.
