Caponata

I'm going to try my hand at Caponata tomorrow and have a question..I'm told the dish is good, hot,cold or at room temp..If you were going to serve it as part of your meal, what temp would you choose. I'm having pork milenasa, rissoto with saffron, the caponata and just lettuce wedges with a creamy blue cheese dressing I think.

GB. it's a vegatable dish, sort of like a coarse relish that can be eaten with a pork roast or fish or just about anything. It's also wonderful over a toasted baguette as an antipasto. It consists of celery, eggplant,red bellpepper onion,diced tomatoes,raisins, dry oregano,red wine vinegar, sugar, capers salt and pepper. I've tasted it as an antipasto, but never made it nor eaten it hot..That's why I asked for HELP

I like it at room temperature. Here's a good-looking recipe:

Caponata

The conversatioon rang a bell. I would also like to try it as a pasta sauce.

You lost me with the raisons. I love them in cookies, cakes, muffins, etc, but I don't like them in savory dishes.

Caponata is basically the Italian version of Rattatouille. I like it either warm/hot or room temp., depending on what I'm eating it with. If it's with bread, or as an antipasti with meats and cheese I like it room temp. If it's a side with an entree I like it hot.
