Coffee and milk
an Italian mini macaroon
That caffè doppio
put it over the top
Notice the Italian
with San Daniele
hiding behind the tall glass?
We are in an Italianate coffee bar,
so we might as well have some
Bacaeà Mantecà (Venetian for creamed stockfish)
on warm toast not only looks good,
it also tastes delicious here!
Bon appetito! :-)
(Bacalà Mantecato in Italian)
"creamed dried cod.
The bacalà is soaked in water, boiled,
and then vigorously pounded or beaten with olive oil
added drop by drop until the mixture becomes very soft,
almost whipped and foamy;
it also contains garlic, pepper and parsley"

I've always wondered what could be done with dried cod -- this sounds delicious!ReplyDelete
Thank you all for your kind messages! :-)ReplyDelete
dried cod, rehydrated and cooked the right way is delicious! My little neighborhood grocery store at Campi de Fiori in Rome still has a marble water trough with running water to rehydrate stoccafisso - dried cod for his customers (even the small restaurant at a small square a few steps away that specializes in fried "Filetti di Baccalà") is still there: Romans love their cod fried! For a bit more information and a nice picture of a dried whole codfish click here.
A wonderful day to all of you! :-)
I;ve said it before and I'll say it again.ReplyDelete
