Italian term or phrase: cumo
3 scodelle di cumo di montagna, reads this recipe for frittelle.

No luck on internet apart from recipes in Italian - any idea anyone? I presume it's typical to the Veneto region, possibly in dialect. SUE

Just an idea - I found this recipe for "risotto al cumo" online - its main ingredient appears to be cumin (cumino in Italian)...

Don't know whether it's in general use as an alternative for cumino or whether it's a typo!

There are also several references to "wild mountain cumin" and "mounting cumin" online:

- although I agree with kringle - 3 bowls sounds like way too much!

The risotto recipe I mentiioned refers to "erba cumino" (which I think is the same thing):
