La Sciamadda dei Vinaccieri Ballerini
We are the result of a curious mix of Ligurian cuisine, Tunisian (the name comes from the island of Tabarca) and Sardinian. A story full of magic, curiosity, sacrifice, bets, sweat, emigration. The Tabarchina cuisine, sincere and genuine, is the result of tasty and original mixtures of three different realities with influences on Ligurian (pestu, fugasse, panissa, fainè) but there are dishes like the cascà (a vegetable cous cous) that are strongly influenced by Tunisian tradition. However, the tone is re-enacted, of which almost everything is eaten (stomach, esophagus, heart).
The menu is essential with a preference, evident, for fish dishes. To taste the different types of chickpea flour, typical of the Genoese tradition – in addition to the classic, also the Crescenza and Pesto – the lasagne alla tabarchina (palamita – tuna – tomato and pesto) and the Cascà of fish and vegetables (Zuppa tabarchina of the exiles of Carloforte).
