Why is Cheese Forbidden in Authentic Italian Fish Cookery?

Absolutely Osprey, this is why some recipes don't cross the local or provincial level; another good example is "La coquille St-Jacques"...the one from Bretagne in France is served "gratiné" but the classic Coquille St-Jacques served in Paris and Lyon doesn't have any cheese cover as the one from Bretagne; the people from Bretagne put cheese on almost everything...probably because it is the main dairy producer region in France; many are sure familiar with the famous salted crepes loaded with cheese and béchamel from Bretagne as well..not a classic in Paris..

Why is Cheese Forbidden in Authentic Italian Fish Cookery?

Ruth it can be beside the point for you, but people sure want to know the best standards in cuisine, for that reason in France the light is coming from Lyon and Paris, so for Italy it's from Rome and Milan; this doesn't remove any value to more provincial cuisine but if it doesn't sell in the capitals it's probably because it doesn't meet the standards of high cuisine, and this is relevant to people that want to know...otherwise anybody could declare themselves 5 stars "chefs"

Believe me those Sardinian and Sicilian recipes are surely not very popular in Rome and Milan.

Poutine is basically french fries with a tiny bit of brown sauce and covered with cheese curds that are melting with the heat of the fries down under lol
This is a simple fast food dish with many variants and served all across Quebec province in Canada

Of course you can eat cheese with whatever you like..there is no fault there, but if you pay close observation and attention to the taste of fish without cheese and with cheese,you will find out by yourself that those two don't marry very well..you greatly loose on the taste of the fish.
Beef, pork and veal marry very well with cheese..we all know that; already with chicken i am not so sure..but with fish it is a universal "no", because it doesn't taste so good.
