Wonderful Carpaccio Dishes

Carpaccio is a known Italian dish of raw meat or fish: beef, salmon or tuna.
It was invented at the 50s in a bar in Venice, named Harry’s Bar. When Countess Amalia Nani Mocenigo stayed there, she informed the owner that her doctors recommended her to eat only raw meat!  So Giuseppe Cipriani – the owner of the bar – created a dish for her, made with very thin slices of raw beef and French Dijon mustard.
As for the name of the dish,  it was inspired by the Venetian painter Vittore Carpaccio, as the colors of the dishes are reminiscent of those used by the painter in his works!!

Today’s carpaccio is not only for the meat lovers!! It is also used for any preparation made with thinly sliced  vegetables (usually seasoned with lemon, or vinegar, olive oil, salt and ground pepper) or fruit!!

A must for vegetable lovers! This appetizer can be prepared with raw or cooked beets. Cook beets in salted water with 2 bay leaves and a clove for about 20 minutes or until tender. The cooking time depends on their size. For raw, cut them in thin slices and blanch them for 1-2 minutes in salted water. Arrange on plates and garnish with herbs, cranberries, nuts, and sprouts.
