Lidia's Italy - Sardinian Lobster Salad)

Lidia's Italy - Sardinian Lobster Salad

Throughout history, Sardinia has been a territorial prize for the great powers of the Mediterranean Basin, and every period of dominion has left its mark on the island. One of the most distinctive influences-both cultural and culinary-was the 400-year rule of imperial Spain, from the early 1300s to the early 1700s. Today, in Alghero, on the west coast of Sardinia, residents still speak a form of the Catalan language. And the spiny lobster that abounds in the waters off Alghero is prepared alla Catalana-cooked, chopped into large pieces, and tossed into a salad. In Sardinia, it is expected that you will grab a chunk of lobster from the salad with your fingers and dig into the shells with gusto. Here at home, I do the same thing with our great Atlantic lobsters, which are certainly as good as if not better than their Mediterranean cousins. I prepare them alla Catalana and serve them Sardinian-style, with lots of moist napkins and bowls for the shells, encouraging everybody to dig in.

Lidia's Italy -Steamed Swordfish Bagnara-Style)

Lidia's Italy -Steamed Swordfish Bagnara-Style

The fishermen of Bagnara, a beautiful port on the Calabrian coast just north of the Strait of Messina, are renowned for their skill in catching the magnificent swordfish that migrate to this corner of the Tyrrhenian Sea every year. The cooks of Bagnara are equally skilled when it comes to cooking pesce spada as well. The one I share with you here is among the simplest and best I have ever tasted, anywhere. Of course, as always in seafood cookery, the freshness of the fish is the key to success, so be sure to get swordfish at its absolute best.

Lidia's Italy - Apple Torte with Bread Crumb and Hazelnut Crust)

Lidia's Italy - Apple Torte with Bread Crumb and Hazelnut Crust

Apples grow well in the Carnic mountains in the northern part of Friuli and are used in many desserts. This delicious, double-crusted tart reflects the deep-rooted frugality of cooks in this tough mountainous terrain. The crust is made with bread crumbs taken from stale bread, probably due to the scarcity of white flour and the time it takes to make a refined pastry dough. But the results, in the Carnic spirit, are delicious.

Lidia's Italy - Beef Braised in Barolo)

Lidia's Italy - Beef Braised in Barolo

Pour olive oil in a big pan and set over medium-high heat. Lay the roast in and brown it on each side for a minute or two, without moving, until caramelized all over. Still over medium-high heat, drop in vegetables and garlic cloves, toss to coat with oil and spread out in the pan. Drop in the rosemary, sage leaves, grated nutmeg, peppercorns, dried porcini and remaining teaspoon salt and toss all together. Pour in 2 bottles of wine and any meat juices that collected on the platter. After 2 1/2 hours or so, check the beef with a meat thermometer. When its internal temperature reaches 180 degrees it should be easily pierced with a fork and removed from the oven.
