The USRG Food Glossary has the following definition:
Cioppino is an Italian seafood specialty, a kind of fish stew. You can get a good dish at the Tadich Grill.
So it seems this is the standard by which all versions are defined. Why?
I have also been wondering about what makes a good Cioppino in general and started a thread on the general board.
