What fascinating facts. I often make eggplant Japanese style where it is split in half and grilled with a sweet miso paste on top called 'dengaku'.

Ever since I started cooking, melanzana has become one of my favorite vegetables. I enjoyed the information you included. Thanks!

Very interesting stuff. I've recently seen the Italian white eggplant at farmers' market; must try it. I adore eggplant in general, all types. I love the tiny Japanese ones for grilling.

I have to admit I have never tried the Japanese eggplants: I really should do it. Thanks Anna for suggesting dengaku.
It is indeed a funny story that of the name melanzana: I am glad you enjoyed it, Paz.
Lisa, let me know how you like those eggplants. By the way, in the current issue of Saveur there is an article about and recipe for caponata that looks quite interesting.

I first tried eggplant in Greek Moussaka. Since then delicious recipes are blossoming everywhere I look. Your eggplant dish sounds truly droolworthy!!

Simona Carini said...

Hi Valli. You just gave me a suggestion for a fun post: stay tuned and you will learn how to say droolworthy in Italian.
