Great Dish

July 25th, 2007 · No Comments

I keep forgetting to mention this. There’s a not so new any more fine culinary addition to the choices in Davis Square. It’s called Sagra and it’s Italian. And 16 years later, like all good things, it’s long since gone away for good.

[editor’s note: there were two URLs to follow, but either leads to a dead end, as the sites linked are deprecated, which is tech talk for defunct.
One of the links led to, along with text, an image of the dish in question. There are plenty of recipes online.]

Here’s a typical presentation and plating, different from the original, but close enough, lifted from an Italian recipe site, called buonissimo.it.

I also want to say, thanks to Steve [Lipsey] for leading me there.

The only other thing I want to say is: Gnocchi al sugo d’anatra*: Amazing!

*Here’s the description from the menu: Soft [“homemade”] potato dumplings, succulent duck ragu, (tomato, red wine, and orange peel) topped by lots of grated Pecorino Romano and Parmigiano.

Actually, there’s just enough cheese grated on it, not “lots,” which would be overkill, if not disgusting.
