Polpo E Spada : Catch of the Day; Recipes and Culinary Adventures in Southern Italy (Hardcover)
About this item
Octopus and swordfish, as well as tuna, bluefish, assorted small fish for frying or making soup, red prawns, shrimp, and clams all feature prominently in the seafood cuisine of Southern Italy, served up in uniquely delicious dishes with authentic Mediterranean flavors. The result of an ancient knowledge, the recipes in this book are a faithful representation of the culinary traditions of this land, brought up to date in the light of a contemporary vision. Ingredients and traditions of the different regional cuisines merge to create an encounter between Puglia, Calabria, Sicily, Sardinia, Campania, Abruzzo, and Molise. "Catch of the Day" also offers a rich and detailed understanding of traditional fishing techniques and seafaring culture, while recounting centuries-old methods, which have practically disappeared today, and insights into the different species of fish and seafood preserves. All with an eye to the most genuinely popular aspects of the culture of the sea in Southern Italy, in many ways a still archaic universe, which still hands down its ancestral legends and stories with a legendary flavor. 45 recipes, 22 deeper insights, 100 photographs, and 15 drawings.
