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.

Plural: frittate

Language: Italian

Description: A sort of cross between a pancake and an omelette with a variety of ingredients. For example, in Liguria you may find it made with sardines or anchovies. It is usually sliced like a cake and often served cold. Similar to Spanish tortilla. Like tortilla it is cooked for rather longer than the classic French omelette.

You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs. With thanks to the unkown artist in Great Italian Cuisine by Luigi Carnacini
