Bologna - 6 February 2017 - Alice Pedocchi
The Veneto has a refined culinary tradition. Historically a melting pot of diverse cultural and culinary influences, we can now enjoy a wide variety of ingredients and elegant combination of flavours.
Some of the characteristic dishes have their origins in the thriving trade with the East, which can be seen in the use of rice and spices. On the other hand other ingredients derive from the Americas, for example, the beans used in the famous pasta e faisoi (pasta and bean soup) and the corn for the renown polenta.
With its well-appointed position, close to both the sea and rivers, the area has a tradition of fish dishes as well as game which is hunted in local reserves.
Examples of this marvellously varied cuisine are mentioned in the works of Goldoni, like that emblematic dish, sarde in saor, and so a precise panorama of local cuisine emerges through the eyes of culture.
We have selected the very best Michelin restaurants that can be found in the region so you can fully enjoy the mouth-watering food that is so typical of the area.
