“Piccatina” with Original Balsamic Vinegar

Today we propose you a very special recipe of our culinary traditition: “Piccatina alla Pavarotti” with Original Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. As its name suggests, this recipe was inspired by the extraordinary tenor of Modena Luciano Pavarotti.

Pavarotti used to say: «Usually the preparation of this recipe takes me about an hour, which is the time necessary to detach myself mentally from the symphonies of the melodrama and devote myself actively to other equally rewarding simphonies, that of the kitchen. If I have enough time, I prepare as a side dish some fried egetables, for example zucchini, peppers and aubergines».
