“Detourism”, the official Town of Venice Tourist communication Service Newsletter, today presents the best traditional Venetian dishes and recipes! Enjoy your reading!
HISTORY, TRADITIONS AND SECRETS OF THE VENETIAN CUISINE.
The Venetian cuisine is part of the thousand-year history of the Serenissima republic. It represents a unique gastronomic heritage, an extraordinary crossroads of cultures and flavours.
As an ancient maritime city, Venice has its own distinct cuisine, combining ingredients from many other kitchens such as Arab, Jewish, and more generally from the East, as well as from Northern Europe.
The Venetian culinary tradition features, for example, dried cod from Norway (called baccalà by the Venetians), or rice and exotic spices from Asia. In the past, sugar, raisins and almonds (used in many Venetian recipes) came to Venice from the Eastern Mediterranean; from Istria, Puglia and Greece oil and wines, all expertly blended with indigenous products, fish and game of the Venice lagoon, and the fresh vegetables of the islands and the hinterland.
