Book Details

Transport your taste buds to the Veneto through evocative recipes such as Radicchio Rose di Treviso, Carpaccio di Pesce, Fig and Prosciutto Chicchetti, Spicy Polenta Lasagne, Risotto ai Frutti di Mare and the traditional Venetian Tiramisu. Fascinating essays are also included to provide background to the history of the region, plus a deep dive into the famous produce, including a study of the wines produced there. The Veneto is a northern Italian region, lying between the base of the Alps and the Adriatic to the south. It has rich soil, a good climate, and as a result, produces rice, many wonderful vegetables, wild and domestic animals, and much dairy produce. The Veneto also forms part of the ‘polenta, bean and rice belt’ of Italy, and risotti, pulses and a beautiful white polenta are more prevalent than pasta. Desserts are beloved in the Veneto. There are many pasticcerie, and shops selling gelati or ice cream. Don’t forget about the wonderful Venetian prosecco (the grapes are grown in Treviso), and grappa, which comes from Vicenza. There is so much to discover and enjoy!
