awe how i love a gripping story.
Or that the chef of a great restaurant was closing, and had nothing to serve the latecomers so he threw whatever he had in a marinara sauce? Maybe...
Then there’s the Ischian painter who created his own Seafood version of Marinara? It’s possible, painters can also cook!
I kind of want to believe it was actually a loving nonna (Italian grandmother), somewhere between the Isle of Ischia and the Amalfi coast, where tomatoes, capers, olives, and anchovies are common...
(thanks to Jeremy Parzen whom researched all the NY Times Puttanesca archives).
But if it's more interesting to believe the stories of “The sauce of Prostitutes” then be my guest!
I created my own version of Puttanesca on a day when life my husband and I were too busy, starving, and craving wicked flavor....out came Puttanesca!...Move over Marinara!
Throw in a bowl and Sop it up with a Biscuit!
