Pertecaregna-style codfish

Codfish in Irpinia has ancient origins: at Christmas, farmers could not afford blue fish and "fell back" on codfish. Today this dish with crusco bell pepper is a real institution!

Pertecaregna, from the dialect word "perteca," meaning a wooden pole placed under the balconies of houses where "nzerte" peppers were hung. The dish is typical in a wide area: from Alta Irpinia to Avellino, each with its own variation.
