SEA FENNEL: THE HISTORY OF CONERO PACCASASSI

In the area of the Conero Riviera this grass is called Paccasassi which literally means “breaking rocks” due to its ability to grow up through sea stones fissures. Paccasassi is a very traditional, typical food and pride of Conero area.

They have a very particular taste and they are great in combination with fresh bread, Mortadella Bologna, anchovies and smoked salmon. Futhermore, they give a special touch to salads and fish dishes. Sea Fennel are cultivated and then manufactured following an ancient recipe that consists of a long marinade with wine vinegar and a final maturation in extra virgin olive oil.
