Over 40 delightful recipes for bar bites, cocktails and spritzes that will transport you to the stone streets of Venice.
Arguably the most seductive city in the world, Venice exudes magic and mystery, history and tradition, so it comes as no surprise that a city which delights at every turn should have a few little-known treasures to discover, too. Not least the custom of enjoying cicchetti (pronounced chee-keh-teeê), catching up with friends over a glass of wine and a selection of small plates. Whether for pre-dinner nibbles, or a full blown party, bring a little taste of Italy to your kitchen at home.
There are over 40 recipes starting with Verdura (vegetables) including Rosemary Roasted Chickpeas and Fig & Blue Cheese Pizzette; or try simple Pesce (fish) plates of Soft Shell Crab with Lemon & Caper Mayonnaise or Red Mullet in Saor and Scallops with Borlotti Beans. Also featured are Carne (meat) recipes for Artichokes with Taleggio Cheese & Prosciutto, Calvesê Liver with Onions & Potato, Speck & Smoked Ricotta Crocchette. Finish up a selection of Crostini & Tramezzini (breads) as well as Bevande (drinks) to do as the Venetians do.
