Carpaccio is finely sliced beef
Carpaccio is an Italian (appetizer) dish made from very thin slices of raw beef. The dish is flavored with olive oil, parmesan cheese and capers (also often pine nuts). In modern kitchens, other types of meat and fish are increasingly used to cut thin slices. Carpaccio is named after an Italian painter: in 1950, a cook from Venice served the thinly cut beef to a customer who had to eat red meat. Originally it is a dish of finely sliced raw beef tenderloin, mayonnaise, Worcester sauce, Tabasco and white pepper.
