Horseradish grows easily and can quickly take over in the garden. It can be picked in season, but for a stronger flavor, the roots are best picked in winter. They must be scrubbed under running water and put into water acidulated with lemon juice before they are grated.

The true specialty of Ligurian cooking is fish, always absolutely fresh and very simply cooked in its own broth with a little oil For a short time in spring, tiny baby fish called gianchetti (fry) are to be found. These are cooked in soup, boiled and eaten with oil and lemon, or mixed with egg and fried as fritters.
