Delacata?

  Re: (...)
What does Patagonian toothfish and squid have in common with US farm raised catfish?
The first was re named Chilean sea bass and the second was changed on menus to calamari--sales soared. Soon you will see this catfish refered to as "delacata" in fine dining circles and grocery stores according to SAVEUR's current issue.
They also mention that farm raised catfish is probably the only fish that taste better than the wild caught. They are right.

I just read an article about this. It seems Cat Cora is involved somehow.

The trademarked Delacata, which celebrity chef Cat Cora has signed on to endorse, will be what filet mignon is to beef, he says.

"Cat" Cora is the national spokesperson for the Farm Raised Catfish Assoc. Nice catch ( )--wonder if she will change her name to Delacata Cora??

Uh, isn't calamari squid????? That has always been my undertanding. I thought catfish was just catfish - unless it is the imported farm raised catfish from Vietnam; then it is called Basa.

LOL! Too funny! I didn't see the "cat" connection until you pointed it out.

I've never heard of Basa, but yes, calamari and squid are the same, it just sells better if you call it calamari. The catfish farmers are playing the same game--they are betting that delacata will sell better than catfish so they are changing the name--you get more for polenta than grits, Chilean sea bass than Caladonian toothfish, filet mignon than beef tenderloin. Clever devils--
