ITINERARY ON THE HISTORY OF THE VENETIAN CUISINE
This is a walking tour along the streets of Venice in search of traces of the gastronomic culture of
the city, which, also, is far from obvious! Starting from the earliest recipes of the lagoon dating from
the days when Venice was only one of the provinces of Byzantium, through the riot of spices
brought by trade with the Levant, through a dizzying range of foreign contamination, till the cuisine
of our days, or at least of what survives.
Exotic perfumes, bizarre recipes and strange habits at the table. It will be told to discover this
fascinating side of Venetian culture, never quite unveiled, and in danger of extinction overwhelmed
by rampant globalization of frozen pizza and junk food.
Along the way, some stages are planned in some bacari (typical Venetian bar) where you can taste
the famous cicchetti (small dishes), accompanied by a hint of wine.
Duration: about 4 hours
Participants: 6 people maximum
