Despite being native of Apulia, the puntarelle chicory are a typical dish of Roman cuisine.
If you pass by Campo dei Fiori market in Rome, take a look at how the greengrocer prepare them. Thanks to Davide and Diego, with a big surprise, at Ca’ – Cucina (Rebekkavej 49, Hellerup) we found Italian puntarelle, and we couldn’t miss to buy them.
Yesterday during our weekly visit at Ca’ – Cucina in Hellerup (Denmark) we saw a lot of fruit and vegetables, including eggplants and celery ….the right ingredients to make caponata, a traditional Sicilian recipe. Every area in Sicily has its own version. We prepared the one we got from a dear friend from Palermo.
