Vitello Tonnato Recipe – Veal Slices with Tuna and Caper Sauce

Authentic Italian Recipes from Nonna Box

Vitello Tonnato first began appearing in cook books in the 19th century because Piedmont was allied with Liguria where tuna was canned along the coast.

At this time, also, lemons and capers from Sicily and a variety of olive oils from the rest of Italy started to arrive in Piedmont and the tonnato sauce was born because the tuna was simply another ingredient in this sauce.

With the Piedmontese love of very young meat, like the veal, this dish was just waiting to happen. This is great for entertaining because the sauce can be made a day in advance and the meat can simply be popped in the oven when you get home.

Caponata Recipe – The Best Sicilian Eggplant Appetizer

Authentic Italian Recipes from Nonna Box

Caponata is a Sicilian appetizer that is made from eggplant, and since eggplant season is almost over, I decided to share with you Nonna Sara’s recipe. Throughout Sicily, there are countless variations of Caponata, some with octopus, seafood or with pinenuts and raisins, but Nonna’s recipe adds potatoes and bell peppers, which is what I grew up on and is my standard for a delicious Caponata.

My favorite way to eat it is by toasting some ciabatta bread slices and piling some room temperature Caponata on top of each slice.

Let?s dive into the history of this delicious Sicilian Appetizer.

What is Caponata?

Greeks, Normans, Carthaginians, Arabs, Spaniards and the French have dominated Sicily over the centuries, influencing and gradually enriching the local cuisine.

Authentic Italian Recipes from Nonna Box

Pizza is a widespread food in cuisines across the world. However, in every country, every region and even in every town, what ?pizza? means may vary.

One area may prefer a ticker crust while other opts for thinner. Some places put cheese on before sauce, and others might skip sauce all together.

Tomato Passata Recipe [Passata di Pomodoro]

Authentic Italian Recipes from Nonna Box

Passata di pomodoro is an Italian staple. You have likely heard of it or used it without even knowing! Tomato passata is something any chef should be familiar with, and the history behind it is also worth knowing.

It is indeed part of Italian culture, not merely a kitchen necessity.

What is Tomato Passata?

At its core, tomato passata is simply a tomato puree. However, true passata di pomodoro is a little more complicated than just pureed tomatoes.

There are a few characteristics that define tomato passata and set it apart from basic tomato puree. At first, tomato passata is strained through a sieve to remove the seeds from the puree. This extra step isn?t always present when making a tomato puree.

Also, passata is never cooked but always bottled or used in its uncooked form. Tomato puree, on the other hand, is often cooked before canning or…
