This Box celebrates those little hidden recipes in the depths of Mercato Vucciria in Palermo & Italy’s Adriatic coast that spans almost 1,250 km (775 miles) and offers everything from quiet fishing villages to bustling resorts and working ports. Each destination has one thing in common, however – access to prime fishing grounds! there’s even a town named after a fish – Pescara, not far from my hometown, Seabream, Seabass, Dentex, and Pandora are the most popular catches just a few miles out from shore
Each box serves two, with a starter, main and dessert. Each box will come with all the prepared ingredients to serve the menu above, as well as cooking and plating instructions.
