Originating in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the squids selected to prepare this fish stew offer nutrients that bring added value to the general well-being and health of the consumer. An indispensable delicacy, if you have already savoured it, and an absolute must if you haven’t!

A certain squid wanted to be a painter. Wide-eyed, she would paint just about anything. But as soon as she finished painting, she would change colour and blend with her paintings. That’s why nobody saw her at the exhibition.
