  • The typical mixed grill of Sassari. It literally means pieces, and it's made with the "poor" parts of calves (diaphragm, intestine - including cannaguru -, heart, kidney, spleen, and, most important, thyroid). It is now illegal because of the mad cow risk alert, but fiorentina (Florence's tall T-bone steak) is now legal again while zimino is not.

    This does not mean that you can't find a way to buy some.

  • I think I accidentally had a dish of mixed grill while in Florence a few years ago. It was pretty dark outside by the time our dishes arrived, and god only knows what I was eating. It sure didn't have the mouthfeel of any meats I've ever knowingly eaten.
