LIVER AND ONION VENETIAN STYLE may reconcile many with this ingredient. Many people don’t like liver for its slightly bitter aftertaste. For this reason, in Roman times, liver was cooked with figs to sweeten it. In fact, the Italian name “fegato” comes from the Latin “iecur ficatum,” meaning liver with figs. The Venetians use onion to sweeten the taste of liver in a dish that is famous throughout Europe.
