Cod shakshuka from The Cleveland in lower Manhattan.
I first learned about this dish from Bonnie Stern, at a James Beard class paired up with Mitchell Davis. Although it’s a Middle Eastern classic — I think Bonnie was showing us her grandmother’s recipe [or was that her grandmother’s recipe for challah, which we also made that day?]. Either way, it struck me that this dish could pass as Italian. Simple ingredients, lovely flavours. Thanks to the Mediterranean for joining us up this way.
