bollito misto

Quick Reference

Italian bollito misto means literally ‘boiled mixed’. It denotes a dish consisting of a range of meats (the full list comprises a piece of beef, a shoulder of veal, a chicken, an ox tongue, half a calf's head and a cotechino sausage) boiled in a large pot with vegetables. When served in restaurants, it is often wheeled around ceremoniously on a special trolley, with each type of meat in separate compartments, and assembled at the table. Its classic accompaniment is salsa verde.
