Carpaccio is a product of modern Italy, invented by a tavern owner in Venice. It usually involves thinly pounded slices of raw meat or fish served atop a light salad. Francesca offers you two versions to enjoy. Thin slices of raw beef tenderloin are served on a bed of greens, topped with shaved Parmesan cheese, truffle oil, and lemon juice. Thin slices of raw swordfish will be served on a bed of mixed greens topped with olive oil, capers, and lemon juice. For the perfect dinner party, serve these salads with a variety of cheeses, olives, cured meats, and crispy baguettes.
