A Taste of Christmas - Insalatina di Baccalà - Chef Francesco Fusco -Locanda Il Moera (Av)


I wanted a taste...a taste of Christmas.  In Campania at Christmas, fish is the dish.  And baccalà, cod, has a pole position on almost every holiday table. Cod is not something that we Americans eat normally, but after nearly 18 years in Campania, I have fallen in love with this specialty that has found it's way to Italian shores via Norway.  At last week's Gusta Natale, I had an opportunity to try Chef Francesco Fusco's insalatina di baccalà, a cod salad.  Fusco's recipe is a twist on a classic he told me as he drizzled a creamy infusion of bell peppers around the plate.  He completed the dish by adding a fennel and black olive chip on top.

Merry Christmas Chef!
