  • Does 'piccata' have any relationship to 'peccata'?

    My son is working on "Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi". Being Italian, I have started craving Veal Piccata, Chicken Piccata, etc... That made me wonder if this word has any relationship to 'peccata' - or 'sin'. I searched the web and couldn't find any history of the piccata dishes or a literal meaning. Any ideas?
Working...
