The “Lazarone” King, according to the fishermen of Santa Lucia, was a crowd-loving monarch. He used to wander the streets to popular acclaim, distinguishing himself by his common tastes, and was well known both to the population and to Sofia, a young woman who enjoyed satisfying others with lovingly made dishes. Sofìa would cook for the King, in her very own house, every time His Highness was in town. By means of her traditional and regal ability to make good food, Sofìa earned the King’s respect, and rumours of a love affair between the girl and His Majesty began to spread on the streets. But her only desire was to share her passion for traditional, sense-inebriating cooking.
