Description: La Cucina Veneziana is at once a fascinating collection of authentic Italian recipes and a culinary journey to one of the world's best loved and most photogenic cities. Written by Gino Santin and specially photographed by Anthony Blake, it is a very personal, insider's appreciation of the food and cooking of Venice and the Veneto, the region surrounding it.
Together they take the reader on a delightful journey to the author's homeland, visiting food markets, shops, vineyards, cafes and bars in a mouthwatering celebration of Venetian cookery. From the bustling fish market of Chioggia and the quaint wild mushroom market in Treviso (where each autumn a handful of elderly ladies preside over an array of funghi porcini worth a small fortune), to the busy local restaurants, each with its own speciality which the author particularly recommends, they travel the length and breadth of the area capturing the places, the people and the food of the Veneto in their own distinctive style.
With over 80 delicious recipes based on time-honoured methods and traditional techniques and 64 fabulous specially commissioned colour photographs from one of the world's top food photographers, La Cucina Veneziana is an irresistibly evocative collection of the food and cooking of Venice, Italy's most popular tourist destination.
