Thank you dear friends!
Half of you voted for Gnocchi alla napoletana, the other half for Ravioli alla sorrentina. So what delicacy where our Mediterranean chefs preparing last week?
The Romantic Cities of Naples and Sorrento are very close in Italy, both facing the blue Mediterranean Sea. Therefore, the correct answer is Ravioli alla sorrentina!
Let’s fix it together, here’s the recipe
The Mediterranean cuisine is a human patrimony, inscribed since 2010 in the Unesco Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It constitutes a set of skills, knowledge, practices and traditions ranging from the landscape to the table, including the crops, harvesting, fishing, conservation, processing, preparation and, particularly, consumption of food. The Mediterranean diet is characterized by a nutritional model that has remained constant over time and space, consisting mainly of olive oil, cereals, fresh or dried fruit and vegetables, a very moderate amount of fish, dairy and meat, and many condiments and spices, all accompanied by wine or infusions, always respecting beliefs of each community. However, the Mediterranean diet (from the Greek diaita, or way of life) encompasses more than just food. It promotes social interaction, since communal meals are the cornerstone of social customs and festive events. It has given rise to a considerable body of knowledge, songs, maxims, tales and legends. The system is rooted in respect for the territory and biodiversity, and ensures the conservation and development of traditional activities and crafts linked to fishing and farming in the Mediterranean communities which Soria in Spain, Koroni in Greece, Cilento in Italy and Chefchaouen in Morocco are examples. Women play a particularly vital role in the transmission of expertise, as well as knowledge of rituals, traditional gestures and celebrations, and the safeguarding of techniques.
