Meat and vegetable food, such as fern-root, was broiled over the fire, but boiling in a vessel was unknown.
Instead eat it baked, broiled or grilled.
Meats should be baked, broiled or steamed, not fried.
For example, you would not eat broiled chicken with a baked potato.
Try the broiled ground sirloin parmigiana or the veal scallopini.
