Bagna Caude

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

This reminded me of 'gardoona', that was how my grandmother pronounced it.

It was sort of a celery, I think, she dipped them in egg and coated with breadcrumbs, then she fried them. They were great!

She was from Sicily.

Thought it was kind of neat that a food that she made was so indicative of her origins. Thanks again board.


It's so exciting to find people with roots in Pratiglione. I was there in 2001. No one speaks English, but one guy who refuses to do so. My family names are Tarro and Rolando. My great grandparents. I'm trying to go back another generation or find any possible relatives.

Thanks for mentioning the town.
