Sunday Dinner: Cioppino

A banged up recipe looks like a winner to me. I figure it’s been on the counter at least a few times.

So good. So so good. I miss it already.

As far as I can tell, “cioppino” is just a fancy way of saying “fish stew in tomato broth.” Zero research went into that assertion, so take it for what it’s worth. The recipe is in the intermediate category on, but the only difficult thing about it was restraining myself from sticking my face in the pot.

The various seafoods — anchovies, cod, shrimp, mussells and scallops — adds up to a spendy grocery bill. We won’t be putting on our table every week, but it joins the ranks of my favorite go-to special occassion recipes — fondue, stuffed artichokes mostly.

The only time, until now, that I tried cioppino was in San Francisco — a speciality of the city. This is just as good. Please try it. And invite me over.

    Oh, Cioppino! One of my favorites, and a bit less spendy than saffron-scented bouillabaisse. This is on my list for the beach in two weeks!
