A stunning cookbook of mouthwatering recipes inspired by the city of Venice. There’s an old Venetian saying: "Eat and drink, because life is a lightning flash." With this in mind, Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi have dodged the tourists and unearthed the delicious and authentic recipes that the romantic, alluring city of Venice has to offer. From San Marco to the old Jewish area, the Caldesis share recipes lost and found. Discover the traditional Venetian pasta, bigoli, served with fresh fish salsa, or try hot polpette (salty pork rissoles) with a glass of wine. Set against the backdrop of breathtaking photographs and Katie’s anecdotes of their trip, Venice is a beautiful cookbook that will transport you to Italy with every page turned.
