The Civic Kitchen, SF - ITALY BY INGREDIENT: BOTTARGA

  • The Civic Kitchen 2191 Mission Street, SF CA 94110 USA (map)

Bottarga is the Italian name for fish roe sacs that have been salt cured and air-dried to taste like the quintessence of the sea. It is more commonly crafted from mullet roe, but can be made from any fish. In this class I will teach students how to cure it and how to cook with it. We will compare 3 different kinds of bottarga, my homemade mullet with roe from the North Carolina coast, Sardinia mullet and Sicilian tuna.
