My favorite time of year is here! When the second garden season is starting, the leaves are turning, and its cool enough to make warm soups and stews. One such recipe I have been waiting to make, Ciopino.
If you don't like seafood or tomatoes, chances are you may not appreciate the qualities of this dish. Who knows, you may just find your next favorite fall meal.
I still have some shopping left to do, but if you are like me, you'll be sourcing the freshest ingredients:
Dungeness crab, mussels, clams, prawns, scallops, white fish, garlic, lemon, onion, celery, tomatoes, dry white wine, herbs like oregano, parsley, bay, and of course the meal isn't complete without a crusty sourdough. These simple ingredients will form what we gloriously savour at least once a year.
Recipe will come later, same with pictures. Off to hunt down some clams!
