I love the Italian dishes that I grew up with and I know there are a lot of others out there who have had recipes handed down to them. This is a place where we can share them. It's interesting to see and try the different variations of classic Italian recipes. Things were done differently in different regions of Italy. A lot depended on what local, fresh ingredients were available. My Mother was Italian and Her Mother and Father were from the region of Calabria.
Has anyone ever had bacala with potatoes? My grandmother made this on Christmas Eve and it had the salted cod, olives and potatoes, something like a stew. I can't remember how she did it and would love to try it this year.
Ok have a question. I know it's traditional to make an italian pie for easter. I ve seen two versions. The first resembles like a deep dish pizza. And the second is more like a custard pie , two crusted though. Are both the tradition at Easter ( so we can have variations) or is the savory meat version more traditional?
