Panagrattato

















It's interesting to note that whenever I get someone from the UK reading my blog they have gotten there from a search for "panagratto." The other search that I get a lot of hits from is "silkworm." I don't know who you are and you don't have to divulge your identify; I just know you are using that search term to get to my blog.

I know I wrote about both subjects; I'm just curious why you folks in Britain keep coming back to "panagratto" which is basically bread crumbs mixed with anchovies. No need to stop coming by; I'm just curious.

I'm the only one in my family who seemed to like the "panagratto." Haven't made it since. Maybe there are lots of folks in Britain who love this.

Anyway, this has been on my mind for a while so thought I would post it and see what the results are. You can comment anonymously.

There is a chain of pubs in the UK which has Panagrattato on their menu....
I wasn't aware of what this was, so put it into Google and the link to your blog was the first result. I assume that is why you are getting so many hits..
Thanks to your informative blg, I won't be ordering it on Sunday as I am a vegetarian!
Much appreciated!

That is exactly how I got to this page as well!! There is a pub in Crawley(West Sussex U.K)called the Dukes head which was refurbished about a year ago. I went there yesterday and had a very nice meal, and looked up the menu online as I liked the sound of a pasta dish...looked up panagrettato...and here I am..!!

Have a lovely day and thank you for the info!!

also a pub in Weybridge - The Minnow - looked to have an interesting menu and I was curious - despite being an Italian speaker, I hadn't come across panagrattato as a culinary term

Same as Andrew except Im going to the Dukes head tomorrow!

I think these are all pubs in the Mitchells and Butlers' Premium Country Dining Group chain. There was nothing in wikipedia about panagrattato so my next stop was your blog...!

Same reason here...our kids are taking us to the Ferry Inn - a lovely pub on the River Thames at Cookham in Berkshire. I have been a chef for over 30 years now and, both to cook and to eat, my favourite style of food is that of the Mediterranean area from Portugal through Spain and Greece and Italy and then to North Africa (Mmmm North Africa !!)Panagretto, however was a term that had passed me by but having learnt what it was it makes sense. I love your blog though and will be ever grateful to Panagretto for bringing me here.

Same again. We went to The Warren,near Binfield, Berkshire, yesterday,(excellent), and this was one of fourteen items neither of us had heard of before,so we thought we'd Google them,and here we are. Eleven to go. Regards.

If you're vegetarian and going to the Warren in Binfield then don't worry all panagettato for them is a fancy word for bread crumbs! I'm lookong forwsrd to my macaroni cheese with bread crumbs!

Just like everyone else, I too am off to a pub in the south of England - this time The Ramblers Rest in Chipstead, Surrey. I'm by no means an expert, but am quite a passionate 'foodie' and have never heard of Panagrattata, thanks very much for taking the time to explain. Your blog is great. I also notice that you are an Aquarius, they are fabulous people! (but I could be bias as I'm one too).

Hi! I also got here by searching for the word in Google, after looking at the menu for the Brampton Mill in Cambridgeshire. Thanks for the explanation, especially as I am a vegetarian! :)

Wavendon Arms in Lavendon has panagrattato on the menu. The term doesn't even exist in wikipedia, which is why I resorted to google.

Similar story as others: I'm a vegetarian who, seeing panagrattato on the menu at a pub in Hertfordshire, googled it and arrived at your blog. Thanks for the insight!

Very much the same as everyone else, except I am going to a pub in Wargrave, Berkshire. Also a vegetarian I didn't want to end up with some meat I was unfamiliar with.

Also at a pub (nags head, brentwood nr london) with a stuffed mushroom starter that looks veggie but as panagretto. Wonder if its just posh breadcrumbs or the real stuff. Also has panko crusted goats cheese. Panko is japanese breadcrumbs. Congrats being top search for panagretto.
