Sarde in Saor by our reader Rosalba
We got to know Rosalba through Facebook: we have got a few friends in common and as time went by we started to exchange comments, recipes and photos! She told us she loved our Sarde in Saor recipe so much so that we asked her to be the first of our readers to recount her experience on trying out one of our recipes. We love to hear from students (people who took our cooking classes) and our readers on how our recipes can be reproduced outside of Venice! If you want to show us your photos and comments about any of our recipes which you have tried out, please just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to publish it, not matter what the results were: success or fail! Nobody is born a perfect cook!
This is what Rosalba Masi-Clark had to say:
I am a Fish Wholesaler in the UK and a food lover. I especially love fish and shellfish and I never tire of finding new ways of preparing and cooking my own produce. Having already tried one of the recipes in your blog, namely the Baccalà Mantecato, and found it easy and delicious, it was about time to venture on another recipe. I was receiving that evening a sample consignment of Cornish sardines, so the Sarde in Saòr was the obvious choice. It all seemed so simple, and I had all the ingredients bar the white onions, and decided to give it a go anyway.
I left them to marinade for 48 hours and they were delicious and wonderfully delicate. I will be preparing this recipe again and again. Thank you Monica. I am not usually a blog follower, but I have come to love your blog.
Thank you so much Rosalba, it was very nice to hear that such an old recipe can be so easily reproduced even if you are not here in Venice, since the ingredients are virtually available worldwide: sardines, onions and vinegar! Can’t wait for you to try out some more!
