First discovered by Elizabeth David born 1913, and published in her book ITALIAN FOOD. The Italian chef Franco Taruschio put it on his menu. Simon Hopkins went to theWalnut Tree Inn near Abergavenny and had this dish. He then put it on his menu at the famous London restaurant Bibendum, where Delia Smith ate it and put it in her book Delia’s Summer Collection. This recipe is so easy to make yet so very tasty you must give it a try.
