I came across Caponata when I was going through my Italian cooking phase. And let me tell you, I still love to cook with Italian flavours but I. Was. Obsessed. Here’s me, borrowing every Italian cook book from the library I could find. Watching endless YouTube videos of Italian mammas cooking authentic dishes (in Italian I might add). I just couldn’t get enough.
One of the reasons I really love Italian cooking, aside from the taste, is how forgiving the recipes are. You really can’t go wrong. This was music to my ears, novice home cook that I was.
