If you want to test your cooking, we will here give you some typical recipes from the Archipelago that will bring you tastes and perfumes from this region so you will not forget the time spent here..

GURGUGLIONE: It is a typical dish based on vegetables cooked in a pan. Fry tomatoes, egg-plants, pepper, onions, aubergines, parsley and basil in some oil. Add fresh tomatoes cut in pieces and let it all cook slowly until the ingredients are tender.

CACCIUCCO: It is maybe the most typical dish from the Tuscan islands, which has become world famous thanks to its taste. It is such a rich soup that it can be served as one main dish. Fry onions, tomatoes and ginger and then add different types of fish. Of course you can not add the fish all together. You start with the types that need more cooking and so on and last the shell-fish and sea-food that only need a couple of minutes. Let it cook slowly and with lots of water. The cacciucco is served with toasted bread with garlic.

SBURRITA RIESE: This is a dish with cod from Rio nell'Elba. Put garlic, savory and ginger in a pot full of water. Add two soup-spoons of oil and big pieces of cod when the water is boiling. Let it cook for 20 minutes and serve the soup with roasted bread in the plate.

STOCCAFISSO RIESE: Another exquisite dish with dried cod from Rio nell'Elba. Let a part of onion, ginger, basil, ginger, salt, pepper, capers, olives and pine seeds fry in some oil in a big terracotta pot. Then add fresh tomatoes and when they are cooked you add the dried cod. Add more water while it is cooking. Serve the dish with grated parmesan cheese.

COOKED OCTOPUS: It is a typical sea dish, with few ingredients and easy to prepare, but very delicious. Put the octopus in hot, unsalted water three times, then let it cook with salt and paprika. If you prefer octopus alla cacciatora you have to cut it, fry it with onion and then add tomatoes and white wine.
BLACK RICE: Clean the cuttlefishes, putting away the bladder with the ink. Cut the cuttlefishes in small pieces and chop the tentacles. Let some onion fry with some oil in a big pan and when the onion is cooked you add the cuttlefishes and the chopped tentacles. Add a glass of wine after a minute and let it evaporate. Then add cut tomatoes, parsley, garlic, salt and paprika. If necessary add a glass of water. When the cuttlefishes are cooked you add the ink and the rise.

SCHIACCIA BRIACA: Put 1 kilo of flour on the table, add a cube of yeast which has been melted in a glass of tepid water, hacked nuts, almonds and hazelnuts, pine-seeds, raisins, 2 glasses of oil, some aleatic wine and a glass of alkermes. Knead the dough for a long time. The dough should be smooth. Oil a round baking pan and put oil-paper in it and then spread the dough in the pan. Cook it in the oven for 45 minutes.
