Some curiosities about vitello tonnato

Did you know that ?

Vitello tonnato

Is a typical dish of “Italian cuisine” based on thin slices of veal covered with a tasty sauce made of:
Capers, Anchovies and Mayonnaise.

It can be served both as an appetiser and as a main course in hot Italian summers.

The most probable origin indicates Piedmont, as the place of origin of this dish. But it could also be that the vitello tonnato originates in Lombardy, Veneto or Emilia.

Originally the tuna in the recipe did not even appear,

The word “Tonné” in fact derived from the French “tanné”, which meant “tanned” and not as many think from “tuna”.
