Hello
Elisa

Thanks Elisa !! We wanted to give her a new look :)))
a kiss

Wow! Fantastic! I know they make it in a restaurant in Pistoia but I haven't gone to taste it yet. I admit it attracts me to death!

Instead they told me about a restaurant in Prato where they made it :))
and it is precisely when I remembered what they had told me that I decided to do it again.

This is the first time I have come to visit you. I have been following you on instagram recently and I promised myself that at the first free moment I would pass by here. I tried it two more times but had a hard time leaving a comment.
Here I am finally.
I read and sifted through a little, I observed the shots and heard, even if indirectly, everything you wrote. I find myself in many of them and in others what immediately catches the eye is certainly spontaneity. I guess you couldn't have chosen a better name for your blog. You enrich it with your genuineness, with your sensations. Lived, felt but true and sometimes imbued with dormant memories. Like this recipe. A blast from the past for me, and I too recently prepared grandma's panzanella.
Happy to meet you and see you soon!

Long live the Pappa al Pomodoro!

I knew I had become truly Italian once I had mastered shopping for food on a daily basis (every morning) as opposed to a large once-weekly supermarket shop. Food shopping Italian style means encompassing the fundamentals of an Italian diet, which is buying food that one needs for that day (maybe two because there will be leftovers), and buying only what is fresh and "in season." Respecting a seasonal kitchen is the basis to following the so called healthy Mediterranean diet.

One of the things I love is how this concept also helps in reducing food waste. I buy my bread every morning at my local bakery for example, but I only buy what I need for that day. That means that it isn & # 8217t obligatory to buy an entire loaf of bread, I can point out the bread I want, and then just indicate the quantity I need. Perhaps you prefer the crusty heel end, or perhaps you prefer the softer, middle part of the loaf. Whatever you choose, your bread will be weighed and, like so many food items bought in Italy, you will pay by weight.

Plenty of tomatoes and bread are at the heart of the pappa al pomodoro. Photo: Toni Brancatisano

While I try to choose just the amount of bread we will eat that day, I often buy too much and, although you can "resurrect" day old bread with 10 minutes in a hot oven, there are some wonderful traditional recipes in Italy that are made with stale bread, born from the cucina povera, the poor kitchen originating from poor peasant cooking. soup recipes in all parts of Italy. Certainly, the cucina povera was ahead of it & # 8217s time if we think how we still struggle today to avoid food waste.

In all probability, the recipe dates back to the last half of the 19th century, when tomatoes became an ingredient for sauces and other cooked dishes in Italy. Photo: Toni Brancatisano

So, a wonderful recipe to use up day old rustic Tuscan style Italian bread is Pappa al Pomodoro. It & # 8217s also the perfect time of year to talk about this recipe because it & # 8217s ideal to take advantage of the many varieties of glorious plump red tomatoes that are abundant in all the markets during the hot summer months.

Pappa al Pomodoro is a & # 8220poor & # 8221 dish of Tuscan cuisine. The peasant origin of this first course is testified by its ingredients: stale Tuscan bread, tomatoes, garlic, basil, Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. In Arezzo, this dish is traditionally prepared by using onion instead of garlic, and yet in other recipes both onion and garlic are used. So, while the ingredients may be simple, they must all be of top quality.

Tuscan bread is usually unsalted, and the reason behind this dates back to the 12th century. The rulers of Pisa were at odds with the rulers of Florence, and cut off their supply lines from the coast. This made salt prohibitively expensive. The Florentines, unwilling to cave to the pressure, simply began making their bread without it, and this is now a tradition that continues today.

The Italian word pappa translates to mush, or baby food and that pretty much describes the consistency of the finished product: a dish that can be eaten at any age. But with amazing tomatoes, fresh basil and high quality olive oil, the flavor is anything but boring.

If you ask a Tuscan the recipe, their answer will vary depending on where in Tuscany they are from and, usually, each different origin will add secret touches, all a little different from each other. Pappa al Pomodoro can be eaten hot, lukewarm or cold, and is always best served with a generous drizzle of Tuscan extra virgin olive oil to give it extra flavor.

In all probability, the recipe dates back to the last half of the 19th century, when tomatoes became an ingredient for sauces and other cooked dishes in Italy. It is said to hail from Siena, and became famous throughout Italy thanks to a famous Florentine writer / journalist born in 1859, Luigi Bertelli called "Vamba," who was the founder of the Giornalino della Domenica, in 1906. The following year he began writing the famous weekly Sunday series of adventures for children Il Giornalino di Gianburrasca, resulting in 55 stories for boys throughout 1907 and 1908. It was then published in a single volume in 1912. There is a famous scene where the protagonist rebels and protests about college food and life, demanding to have only Pappa al Pomodoro to eat!

Today, Pappa al Pomodoro is no longer looked upon as a & # 8220poor dish, ”and is considered as a healthy recipe by dietitians and doctors. Photo: Toni Brancatisano

Pappa al Pomodoro was also celebrated in a song by Rita Pavone in the sixties when she starred in a famous film adaptation of the book by Vamba. If you know this song it will probably be swimming around your head all day now.

Many Tuscans will tell you not to even think of putting parmesan cheese on it & # 8230 but I & # 8217m sorry… I love a little sprinkling of cheese and some freshly cracked black pepper just before diving in!

JELLY WITH TOMATO

3. Add the chopped tomatoes and their juices and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add half the basil and let cook until the tomatoes begin to soften and break down. Allow to cook for 20-25 minutes in a covered saucepan, stirring occasionally.

4. Using a wooden spoon, add the stale bread cubes and stock. Continue simmering until all the bread has absorbed as much liquid as possible, yielding a thick consistency.

I realized I became truly Italian when I learned to buy food daily (every morning) instead of weekly in a large supermarket. Buying in the Italian style means understanding the fundamentals of the Italian diet, which is buying the food one needs for that day (or maybe two because there will be leftovers), and buying only what is fresh and & # 8220 in season & # 8221. Respecting a seasonal cuisine is the basis for following the so-called healthy Mediterranean diet.

One of the things I love is how this concept also helps reduce food waste. For example, I buy my bread every morning at my local bakery, but I only buy what I need for that day. This means that it is not mandatory to buy a whole loaf of bread, I can indicate the bread I want and therefore only indicate the quantity I need. Maybe you prefer the crunchy edge, or maybe you prefer the softer part of the middle part of the loaf. Whatever you choose, your bread will be weighed and, like so many food products purchased in Italy, you will pay for it by weight.

If I try to choose only the amount of bread we will eat that day, I often buy too much and, although it is possible & # 8220 to resurrect & # 8221 day old bread with 10 minutes in a hot oven, in Italy there are some wonderful traditional recipes made with stale bread, born from the poor cuisine of peasant cuisine. It was the time when wasting a single slice of bread (even if it was stale) was considered blasphemous and, in fact, there are many soup recipes based on stale bread in all parts of Italy. Of course, poor cooking was ahead of its time, if we think about how we still struggle today to avoid food waste.

Therefore, a wonderful recipe for consuming old Tuscan type bread is Pappa al Pomodoro. This is also the perfect time of year to talk about this recipe, as it is ideal for taking advantage of the many varieties of big and glorious red tomatoes that abound in all markets during the hot summer months.

Pappa al Pomodoro is a & # 8220 poor & # 8221 dish of Tuscan cuisine. The peasant origin of this first course is testified by its ingredients: stale Tuscan bread, tomatoes, garlic, basil, Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.

The Italian word pappa translates as mush, or baby food, and this more or less describes the texture of the finished product: a dish that can be eaten at any age.

Pappa al Pomodoro can be eaten hot, lukewarm or cold, and it is always better if served with a generous drizzle of Tuscan extra virgin olive oil to give it an extra flavor.

In all likelihood, the recipe dates back to the mid-19th century, when tomatoes became an ingredient for sauces and other dishes cooked in Italy. It is said that he came from Siena and became famous throughout Italy thanks to a famous Florentine writer-journalist born in 1859, Luigi Bertelli called & # 8220Vamba & # 8221, who was the founder of the Giornalino della Domenica, in 1906.
