Overview

Venice has always been a bustling trade city. Its cuisine is the most profound expression of a territorial identity and was not immune to contaminations by other cultures. The need to preserve food during long sea journeys and strong links with the Far East—the origin of the city’s imported spices—generated recipes with unexpected flavours.

Nonetheless, the flavour of Venetian dishes reveals something more than its commercial past. To discover its complexities you must sail to the lagoon’s islands, where the restaurants offer authentic traditional Venetian cuisine. VENEZIA IN CUCINA captures the essence and inspiration of many of those native Venetian dishes, including everything from antipasti and entrees to wine pairings and delectable desserts.
