(Pictured o n page 42)

C ioppino is a cross between a soup and a stew. It's
fast to prepare because the various shellfish cook in
their shells . And it 's messy to eat because you must
pick up the shellfish with your fingers if you want to
enjoy their succulent flavor. But that's the fun of
this dish that is so good for an informal party. Serve
it with a green salad and offer French bread to
absorb the delicious sauce .
