The Real Aubergine Parmigiana!
It would be possible to write an essay about Aubergine (or eggplant) Parmigiana – firstly relating to the region of its origin – which is hotly contested between Emilia Romagna, Campania, Sicilia and Calabria – and secondly regarding the real origins of its name.
Contrary to what many Italians believe, the name “Parmigiana” is derived from “Parmiciana” the horizontal slats used to make a Persian blind as this is what the slices of aubergine resemble when they are layered in the parmesan cheese.
