bollito misto

boiled meats

Made throughout Italy in many different ways, although the most elaborate version is probably bollito misto alla piemontese, once a favourite of Italy's first king Vittorio Emmanuele.

It features seven kinds of meat: beef (shoulder) veal (breast, tongue and head), a chicken, and pork (cotechino) boiled with seven vegetables (two onion, three ribs of celery, two carrots) and served with seven sauces, usually mostarda d'uva, avije, bagnet vert, bagnet ross, grain mustard (senape), cognà, and horseradish mixed with yogurt.
