Example Term: Carpaccio

A classic Italian dish, served as a starter, of very thin shavings of raw beef fillet, served cold with olive oil and lemon juice or with a mayonnaise or mustard sauce.

The dish is often topped with capers and sometimes onions. Although true carpaccio is made with beef, ‘carpaccios’ of other thinly sliced raw meats, fish or even fruits are becoming more frequently sighted on restaurant menus.
