Luigi Crescenzi, Lazio. Anchovies, Tuna and Colatura

'My favourite anchovies are supplied by The Ham & Cheese Co, which sources them from Luigi Crescenzi. His anchovies, preserved with sea salt and organic extra virgin olive oil, are the most delicious I have tried' James Lowe, Flor
Luigi Crescenzi has a tiny workshop in Anzio, an hour from Rome, preserving sustainable fish and seafood such as octopus, bonito, mackerel and clams. All are chosen for their flavour and shorter life cycle which prevents any build up of heavy metals in the flesh. Luigi's anchovies are fished from day boats May to September and worked within a few hours of being caught, never seeing a fridge or freezer. Each jar has the name of the boat and the stretch of coast (between Ponza and Fiumicino) where the fish were taken. This whole range of fish, preserved with sea salt and organic extra virgin olive oil, is of a quality that we have never found before and Luigi, so often to be found talking about the perils of over fishing, is an inspiration
