Ocean's Farm Inspired Seafood Stew

Cioppino is an Italian-American dish that derives from Northern California. It's origins date back to the late 1800's by Italian immigrants who fished off Meiggs Wharf and lived in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, many with roots from the port city of Genoa, Italy. If a fisherman had no luck out on the water, they would walk around the docks with a pot, asking other fishermen to chip in whatever they could. What made it into the pot became their cioppino!

While typically a fish stew, we've brewed up our own cioppino-inspired recipe using a medley of ingredients collected from around the Big Island in our bags - our Pā'ina Bags! From cherry tomatoes and turnips from Rincon Farms, to breadfruit from the Hawai'i 'Ulu Cooperative and a shellfish harvest from Kona Cold Lobsters - this is a farm forward dish highlighting all fresh ingredients. Pair with a nice pasta or artisan bread for a delicious seafood feast!
