“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”
― Laurie Colwin
What is Pangrattato?
Pangrattato (Italian for bread crumbs) are crispy flavoured breadcrumbs that are a fabulous way of adding deliciousness and texture to all sorts of meals; I find you can’t go wrong with a crunchy sprinkle! It’s also Very Cheap as you can use stale bread and the additions are a great way of using up other leftover bits and pieces.
Sometimes pangrattato is known as ‘poor man’s Parmesan’ but this is a misnomer – it is nothing like Parmesan although it goes well with it, and is in no way a compromise!
