Maritata Soup, the queen of the table in Naples

Christmas is approaching and we certainly feel like getting organized to prepare tasty dishes but respecting traditions.

Maritata soup, the queen of the Christmas table, is an absolute must. The oldest version dates back to 1588. Historians swear it is the first.

“The Maritata made of torzi, large bones – wrote author Del Tufo – and meat, … where a piece of old ham is used to make a better preparation of salcizon, sopressata and broccolaro with its fennel and good cheese inside, so that the flavor penetrates the center”.

Since then numerous versions and interpretations have been proposed. Neapolitan and non-Neapolitan cookbooks are full of ideas on how to make it.
