I had never heard of socca until a year ago. The first time I had it was with a dear friend in Nevada City. I was a guest teacher at her studio and in between sessions we got to enjoy a meal together. I don’t think either of us knew exactly what we were ordering but it sounded so good and man, were we right.
Fast forward to present day, and this friend is going through the hardest of hards. She lost her life partner. A man we all loved and admired. I think I’m still in shock and don’t quite know what to do other than keep sending my love her way and nourishing myself in the ways I know how.
Enter, socca. This recipe is incredibly easy, deeply satisfying and for me, touches the soul.
