    Gregada (Croatian Poached Fish)

     Inspired by Zdravko and Marion, gourmets & residents of Hvar Island in Croatia.
     

    You might enjoy this dish on our tours of seaside Croatia where it is quite popular. More specifically, the recipe is typical on the Dalmatian Coast. Quoting Zdravko: "Gregada is very much a [island of] Hvar dish. On [the island of] Korčula they have popara, which is similar, but uses tomatoes to make the sauce red and is usually served with macaroni, preferably homemade."

     

    Suggestions from Marion: "It’s a very simple dish, and so the instructions are not very precise. It all depends on what you find at the market that day!"

  • Spaghetti all'Acqua Pazza

    Spaghetti all'Acqua Pazza (Crazy Water Style)

    Inspired by Mimmo Corcione.


    You might enjoy this recipe on one of our tours in southern Italy, although this is not so popular in restaurants. Rather, it is another Italian dish inspired by the urge not to waste anything in the kitchen!

     

    Mimmo Corcione is a retired Neapolitan man who does not define himself a "chef" but is surely a "buongustaio" ("gourmet" in French and English). In 2020, we enjoyed watching his videos while "traveling" from our kitchen, following his traditional recipes.
