Pappa col Merlo

Pappa col MerloIngredients for 6 people

6 blackbirds
6 tablespoons of olive oil
6 tomatoes
300g of rough Tuscan bread
50g of milk cheese
Salt and Pepper

There was a time when it was felt important to make sure the sick people and the children were well nourished. They considered only one dish to do this. Today, many lovers of game and poultry love it. They want blackbirds big and fat and stuffed with olives.

Wash them, and remove their heads, feet and insides. Then, put them into a pot with tomato, olive oil and a pinch of pepper. Let it boil slowly until you have a light broth. After one hour, you can add the bread. Let it simmer for a few minutes. It must be of a good consistancy before you pour it into the bowls, ensuring that everyone gets some blackbird and has some soft cheese with it too.

The sick people and the children did not allow this dish to go to waste and would often have it with a glass or two of Brunello.
