how to cook seppie in nero di seppia


In early December, my friend Chiara offered to teach me how to cook some traditional Venetian fish dishes. We started on Saturday at the Rialto market, where I learned how to buy a large squid and gamberetti (for lunch on Sunday with Ettore and Tom), as well as vongole veraci for Saturday's lunch after the lesson. Back at her house after shopping, I took notes by drawing, as she worked. I am not sure that I have mastered skinning the squid, but I understand how to clean the shrimps and cook the clams. I was so pleased by this (and so amazed by the taste of the fresh clams that I did it several times on my own in the following weeks.
