Veneto & Venice Food and Recipes
My first introduction to the cooking of the Veneto region was through
my mamma and my many aunts who all come from Vicenza or nearby towns and villages. I must have been around four that first time I can remember helping my mother in the kitchen. The aromas and wondeful flavors have stayed with me for ever! These recipes bring those memories flooding back.
Let me share with you then some of these all time favorite recipes from the Veneto and a few classics from other regions of Italy.
of the best recipes are from my mother and my aunts, some are from local
restaurants while others have been shared with me by friends.
They range from a Gnocchi recipe through to a great asparagus recipe and even an Italian cookie recipe – Veneto style.
Veneto and Venice, as in all of Italy, food is a serious business. The Veneto, perhaps more than any other, is the
region of Italy where you will find dishes to suit all tastes.
Lake Garda and the coastal region have some fabulous fish recipes,
Verona is famous for its duck and pheasant, while throughout the
mountain areas polenta recipes and gnocchi recipes abound.
