…to our Spaghetti Tetrazzini post below. Jamie Oliver had us convinced that this was Italian, publishing it in his Italy book and alluding to an old Italian recipe book.
Our trusty Italian friend has since discovered that Tetrazzini isn’t an Italian dish at all but an American one. It is thought that the dish was created by a chef in San Francisco who named it after an Italian opera star called Luisa Tetrazzini. It’s all there in black and white on wikipedia so it must be true. It also explains some of the comments from other bloggers who remember this from their childhood. I don’t think any of them are Italian either!
So cheers Enrico and good luck with your new foodie wine blog which comes highly recommended by Jono and Jules:
