In the delicious Genovese “fritto misto” with a mix of fried meat and vegetables, there is always a diamond-shaped fried item with a soft and creamy texture.
Do you know what it is? It’s milk! Actually there are two types: sweet and salty. The sweet one is called “Latte dolce fritto”, and is a kind of custard. The salty one is called “Latte brusco”, which is similar to a very thick and flavorful bechamel sauce.
And it is precisely “Latte brusco” the recipe that I prepared yesterday with frascheri milk, a that tastes Liguria.
You can prepare this dish to make a delicious Genovese mixed fried, as is traditional, or you can serve it as an appetizer, which is what I often do.
The milk has such a delicious creamy flavor that compliments the other dishes. However, be careful not to make too much or people will fill up on just this appetizer!
Here the recipe! Enjoy!
