There’s an old Venetian saying – ‘eat and drink because life is a lightning flash’. With this in mind, Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi have travelled to the romantic city of Venice and collected some of the most delicious and authentic recipes that the alluring city has to offer. From San Marco to the old Jewish area, the Caldesis draw inspiration from the less obvious parts of the picturesque city for their delectable recipes. Enjoy some tasty cicchette – Italian-style tapas – with a glass of cloudy prosecco or an Aperol spritz. Filled with traditional Italian recipes you would expect from the region, you will fall in love with the spelt spaghetti with wild mushrooms and parmesan cream, and a stunning black linguine with crab. Katie has also unearthed some more unusual dishes which have been influenced by Venice’s rich history as a trading port for spice. Try the clams in ginger broth, or the fantastic chicken with fennel and spices. Figs in Madeira and the heavenly Venetian pear tart are just a few of the decadent desserts you must sample. Set against the backdrop of breathtaking photographs, and Katie’s anecdotes of their trips to the region, Venice is a beautiful cookbook and keepsake that will transport you to Italy with every page turned.
