Cif-Ciaf is perhaps the most famous dish of the tradition of mountain pastures of Cervara di Roma that was eaten in the high-altitude pastures.

It is a stew of sheep meat boiled with oil, vinegar and salt to form a soup. For this preparation no water was used as that was very precious in the mountains in the pastures far from the springs.

Today it is cooked on request and accompanied by potatoes with rosemary or local seasonal vegetables.
