The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Language: Italian

Description: Different sources try to differentiate between buridda and burrida, stating that one or other is the famous Genoese fish soup served over large croƻtes or a Sardinian dish of dog fish and skate topped with breadcrumbs, chopped nuts, garlic and nutmeg, or even a Ligurian dish of dried cod with tomatoes, mushrooms and anchovies. Since they generally disagree about which spelling belongs to which dish I think you must try to establish which is on offer by other means. In Liguria it is likely to be a soupy stew of fish with tomatoes, vegetables, pine kernels and including anchovy fillets, sometimes made with dried vegetables. In Sardinia, where it may also be called "la burrida", it could either be a dog fish soup or the dish described above.
