Discovering Venice

Some tips and information to live Venice as insiders

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!

Grouper fillets with orange and basil

After all the Christmas meat and salami, it's really time for some fish! This recipe is really refreshing, delicate and good for kids and parents...

For 4

cappelletti day!

squillas gratin (canocce al forno)

I just looooove squillas... and this is maybe the best time of the year to buy them, they're just perfectly fleshy, which is needed for this recipe. One way to cook them is simply to steam-cook and garnish with olive oil, but I found this other recipe which is just as simple and has a little more taste. Try it!

20 squillas
