GOURMET WORDS FROM THE ITALIAN RIVIERA: ZEMBI CON L’ARZILLO



Zembi con l'arzillo, an epitome of the Mediterranean way of life...

Exquisite fish (white flesh) ravioli, served with a tomato seafood sauce. “Zembi” derives from the Arabic zembil (baskets made with palm leaves, uised for the transportation of fish). “Arzillo” is the pungent, saltry scent smelt by the seashore.
