DIVA EATS ITALIA IS MERGING!

May 23rd, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

There have been a lot of changes in my life in the past year, which is making it difficult to manager my 2 blogs, Diva Eats Italia & Diva Eats World. To make it easier on myself, I’ve decided to merge the 2 under the name Diva Eats World. What does this mean? All the recipes here on these pages will remain live, but all new Italian recipes will be posted on Diva Eats World

If you haven’t been over to Diva Eats World, give it a go. There are some great recipes from my travels, friends and family that cover the globe!

SEE YOU OVER THERE!

(RECIPE)

Pollo al mattone, is Italian for chicken under the brick. It refers to a method of grilling, where a brick is placed on top of a whole chicken while cooking. The weight of the brick makes the bird have complete contact with the heat. This allows it to cook evenly and get nice and golden brown. It’s said that this method originated in a little town outside Florence, where they’re known for terra cotta tiles.

Barbuto, my favorite restaurant in Manhattan, is known for their brick oven chicken that they serve with salsa verde. This is my take on their popular dish. My salsa verde is simply a sauce made from, extra virgin olive oil, capers, lemon zest and some chopped herbs, such as tarragon, basil and parsley. It’s that simple! Now that grilling season is upon us, go get yourself some clean bricks and grill away. It’s a must.

Gustatela!
