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!!
