Tasty Facts

– The recipe for ciopino soup originated in America on the shores of San Francisco, when sailors began to prepare it in the 1800s from everything that was in their catch. Since then, according to the recipe, any available seafood and types of fish have been added to the soup.

Cioppino is called Italian-American soup because it was invented by the Genoese, the first Italians to immigrate to America. The name of the dish from the Genoese language means “to chop”.

– If the soup is served with crabs, you need to prepare special cutlery for them – tongs and a two-pronged fork.
