Along the Adriatic coast of central Italy to the east of Umbria, lies the Marche region with its capital Ancona and the picturesque cities of Urbino, Ascoli Piceno, and Pesaro. From the sea to the ancient oak forests in the foothills of the Apennines -- from churches and monasteries to impenetrable fortresses, Marche offers a wide array of intensely scenic views. People from Marche are well known for both their hospitality and their richly sophis- ticated culinary taste. Nineteenth century Pesaro-born composer, Gioacchino Rossini, was as devoted to his virtuoso music as he was to "la buona tavola," the art of good eating. In fact, in Marche many dishes are described to this day as having been prepared "alla Rossini," evoking the name of the great maestro. Marche's coastal cuisine is absolutely superb with fish and seafood being brought in daily to the ports of San Benedetto del Tronto, Civitanova Marche, and Porto San Giorgio. The finest lobsters, crayfish, mantis shrimp, sardines, octopus, turbot, and squid are abundant throughout the Adriatic Sea. At least thirteen types of fish and shellfish are used to prepare brodetto, the traditional fish soup of Marche. Born as a way of using fish and seafood otherwise not desired in the market due to its size or quality, this dish was originally made onboard the fishing boats by fishermen who added seawater, vinegar and olive oil to the extra fish. Brodetto is now one of the signature dishes of the region and nearly every coastal town has its own recipe. An- other very popular seaside dish is calamari ripieni, stuffed squid, a delightful recipe that enhances the squid's natural flavor and shape. Enjoy it with a glass of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC, a pleasantly fruity white wine of light to medium strength -- the perfect pairing for your best calamari recipe yet. Calamari Ripieni (Serves 6) 4 doves of garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil I bunch of parsley Salt and pepper A few mint leaves 1 Ib cleaned squid Ib lean veal {chopped} 2 tbsp tomato paste 2 tbsp breadcrumbs Juice of a lemon Preparation: Heat a pot of salted water with 3 garlic doves, half of the parsley and mint leaves. Add the veal and cook for approxi- mately 40 minutes until tender. Grind the meat in a food processor with the breadcrumbs, add a little oil, and season with salt and pepper. Wash the squid, season with salt and pepper, stuff 3/4 of the way with the ground meat m~e, and secure with a toothpick on both ends. Chop the remaining clove of garlic and saut6 briefly with the rest of the parsley in a large pan. Add the tomato paste, and season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Place the stuffed squid in the pan, cover with the tomato sauce, cover with a lid and cook over low heat for approximately 15 minutes until tender. Serve hot. Buon appetito!
