This dish, the raisins and pine nuts salt cod, my grandmother cooked it, originated in the area between the provinces of Florence and Pisa. Unfortunately she died when I was 4 years old, but I like that the dishes and traditions are hand down, is a way to remember also those who are no more.
I remember the day when my father told my mother the following sentence: “The Mom did it with raisins and pine nuts” referring of course to the cod and then even my mom started to cook it.
And now I cook as well!
