Discovering Venice

Some tips and information to live Venice as insiders

panzerotti

Hi everybody! Today, one of my favourite recipes, ideal for parties: panzerotti! Basically a fried pizza, you can try all kind of fillings, but here I'll post the traditional, basic one -mozzarella, basil and tomato - always a success, easy to make, kids just love them. Here we go!

For 10 panzerotti

500g wheat flour (I usually divide it into 150g kamut, 100g whole wheat flour, 100g 00 wheat flour, 150g durum wheat semolina)

250cc warm water

5 tbsp olive oil

1 cube natural yeast

2 mozzarellas

1 can peeled tomatoes

10 basil leaves

Violet risotto 2 - the revenge

Last Sunday I eventually decided to go for the Artichoke feast on Sant'Erasmo isle... I go each year, in fact I love Sant'Erasmo, and it's a good chance to buy good local products such as saltmarsh honey, locally grown vegetables and of course the famous, violet artichoke. The farmer revealed me a secret: "cook the outer leaves and stems, you'll have the best risotto ever!" Thrilled to have received this cooking secret, I immediately tried it and prepared a stock using the outer leaves and stems (together with carrots and onions) as ordered.

Pork in milk and vin santo sauce

Good evening everybody! It's now the time for a meat recipe; this is a traditional roast in casserole, long to cook but very easy, always tender, ideal to cook in advance if you're planning a daytrip and wishing to have something yummy and nutritious when you get back home, hungry and tired!

For 4

800g pork tenderloin

1/2l milk

1/2 glass vin santo

a piece of butter and a little olive oil

salt

Natual prawns

What a beautiful market today at Rialto! I bought fresh anchovies, which I used to prepare a pasta sauce, and a bunch of fresh, delicious prawns. Going at 8:30am allowed me to enjoy the widest choice. There are thousands of ways to prepare prawns, but maybe, after all, the simpler the better when the "raw material" is good. So here is how I prepared them tonight, as a fresh appetizer:

For 2

8-10 big prawns

olive oil

1/2 lemon

1 fresh carrot

Vanilla and pear pudding



Vanilla and pear pudding

fusilli with mackerel and brandy sauce



Smells like Spring here! Longer days, shining sun, fresh air... after such a cold month of February, it's such a pleasure to stay outside again and enjoy the sun! Which means, slightly less time for cooking. So, here is a quick and tasty recipe, which needs just a simple preparation. Enjoy!

For 4
80g grated Parmesan cheese

Fritole or Venetian Carnival fritters



Carnival has started and, together with it, fritole! I've always wanted to make them, but didn't find a good recipe. This year, I consulted both my new cooking bible "history of Venetian cooking", where you can find the original, XVIII century dated, recipe, as well as other website and at the end I put them toghether with this result

Risi e bisi

I received from Santa a very nice book: History and Origin of Venetian cooking by Giampiero Rorato; very interesting as it explains all of the influences during history which brought to nowadays dishes. So, I can now try and share with you plenty of traditional recipes!
