'Winner of two "Gourmand Cookbook Awards 2014: " Best in the World, Historical Recipes and Best" "Local Cuisine, For Italy'Food and glass: a combination offering an authentically Venetian experience. Venetian cooking is fundamentally a simple cuisine because of the basic ingredients and methods of preparation and the time required for cooking is short, but it is also complex, giving rise to striking and unusual combinations. This gastronomic tradition is the product of a highly distinctive territory, one in which water and land closely exist. There are fish and shellfish from the lagoon and the nearby Adriatic, vegetables and fruit from the islands in the estuary, and meat and game from the mainland and spices from the distant Orient. What better way to present these traditional Venetian dishes than on the magnificent glassware of Murano? In an unprecedented and audacious coupling of gastronomy and art, Venetian glass reveals its many fascinating and still up-to-date aspects and is brought back to life on the modern table through these original pairings.
