    Trying to create some space in the freezer. One of the gratin dauphinoise I made a few weekends ago with a lamb cutlet and greek salad.

    Well--that's because "puttana" in Italian means "lady of the streets".

    When I read the Sandro Petti story I remember "Facci una puttanata qualsiasi" being translated as "Throw together some crap". When he put it on the menu he didn't want to use crap=puttanata so used puttanesca instead. I would need an Italian speaker to tell me whether this could be correct.

    Ahh puttanesca sauce. Perché questo nome? (Why this name?)

    I had to consult with my mother in law - born and raised Roman - who was highly amused to be asked. Lol.

    She doesn’t know of the correct origin - but the legend is that Puttanesca sauce has a great scent... And the etymology is “puttana” .... so you could smell the heavy cologne in the streets at night - ergo — this highly scented sauce.

    Correct or no? I dunno... but that’s the word on the street.. (pun?? ☺️)


    Re: 💩: puttanata - there is a phrase “non dire puttanate / don’t talk rubbish or BS”

    I have also read the story from a chef in the 50s / whose friends came over and said “Facci una puttanata qualsiasi” (Make any kind of crap...)

    Not sure if the correct origin will ever be agreed upon..

    *But - I have to add - I hope everyone is using anchovies and capers in their puttanesca sauce or the crime is real... capisci?

    Side note: it’s now been 10ish months since we have been back to Italy. The longest my spouse has been away since birth. My garden is overgrown and the house has been shuttered.
    I’ll have to get a big plate of Puttanesca upon return and take a photo as soon as we land. 🙌🏻

    Tonight's dinner was about management of leftovers. There was a carrot and a stalk of celery languishing at the bottom of the produce drawer that went into the chicken and veg stir fry that also used up some leftover chicken gravy. Leftover Jamaican peppered steak from our Caribbean takeaway on Wednesday night was asian-ified by warming up with fried onion and soy sauce

    I've also heard the puttaneca is considered a bit slatternly because no fresh ingredients are involved. Tinned tomatoes, olives, capers, garlic, onion, anchovies, chilli flakes.

    I’m trying to clear freezer space too, to facilitate Christmas prep. So Lentil & Veg Kofta from the freezer on a bed of roasted peppers and tomato/parsley pearled spelt. I’d forgotten how good those Kofta are!

    Grilled Italian sausage, steamed jasmine rice, grilled onions/peppers with basil pesto and a Romaine lettuce salad with baby cucumbers, shredded carrots, croutons and some dressing.👩🏽‍🍳
