Il Carcerato

Once again with dry or stale bread this time, however, combined with beef rigaglia (leftovers and organs) cooked together with herbs and spices.
The dish is called il Carcerato (the prisoner) because the story goes that prisoners in the Pistoia prisons of Santa Caterina in Brana were given the butcher’s leftovers made into a more complete meal with bread and water. This was made possible by the fact that the prisons were close to the public abattoir.
Another traditional and tasteful meet dish is Peposo, as the one in the picture aside.
