Favorite Italian Dishes

Recommended Posts

For me, it's a dish I don't make often enough and surprisingly, it's not pasta. :wink:

Bollito misto.

You know it better as the Italian version of New England boiled dinner.

Unquestionably it would have to be anything to do with vegetables. The last time I posted to this thread was in 2011 and I've broadened my experiences since then.

Stufato di verdure ("vegetable stew") is probably number one these days.

Cavolfiore con pomodoro ("cauliflower with tomato") is a second.

Then, there are the salads: insalata di funghi ("fennel and mushroom salad, with Parmgiano-Reggiano cheese") insalata di finocchio e arance ("fennel and orange salad"), insalata di zucchine e pomodoro ("zucchini and tomato salad").

Too many for me to name, but those are just a handful of things I look forward to.

Dinner at Corale Verdi, Parma yesterday.

Had some of the dishes listed here: mixed salumi with fried dough pillows and bollito misto.

And risotto Giuseppe Verdi, must add risotto Giuseppe Verdi to my dish list.

Pity i left home my camera.

      I recently took a trip to Northern Italy, and was delighted to find that the cappuccino everywhere was just wonderful, without exception. Smooth, flavorful, aromatic perfect crema, strong but not too strong.
      Aside from the obvious answer (duh, Italians created cappuccino ), what makes Italian capp so fantastic, and how do I duplicate the effect here?
      I'm wondering if it's the water, the way the coffee is ground or stored, the machines used....I'm baffled.
      Also noticed that the serving size tended to be smaller than what I'm used to -- i.e. a small teacupful vs. a brimming mug or Starbucks supersize. Not sure why that is either.
      Grazie mille for any insight on this!

      The Modernist Cuisine team is currently traveling the globe to research pizza and different pizza styles for our next book Modernist Pizza.  Nathan and the team will be in São Paulo and Buenos Aires soon. We'd love hear from the eGullet community—what pizzerias should they visit while they're there? You can read more about our next book Modernist Pizza here. Thanks in advance, everyone!

      My article was published (my first one!)! Hooray! And I do have some Florentine restaurant recommendations including the new Osteria del Pavone which is amazing--lampredotto ravioli is now a thing and it must be tried.

      Hi.  I'm brand new to this site.  I used to be on Chowhound but I see now that that site is a mess. I found this site and it looks pretty cool.  The main reason I joined is  I’m looking for recommendations for a restaurant to hold my wedding in March 2018. We were hoping maybe in Brooklyn but we are open to anything interesting. There will be 55-60 people and the ceremony will also be at the restaurant. I’m thinking of a brunch/early afternoon affair, most likely on a weekend. Would love to find a funky/old school/unique/charming type of place for my sweetheart. Inexpensive please! Thank you in advance!
