Everyone knows about the characteristic winding canals and little bridges throughout Venice..but most do not know the interesting history of the cuisine and wines produced in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region ( the region the city of Venice is part of).
The cuisine is more than Italian cooking. It offers a culinary combinaton of 3 great culinary traditions- Central European, Venetian and Slavic-which produce many interesting and luscious dishes.
This week I will be a special guest at an event produced by the Friuli Venezia Giulia region- in NY city. Our hosts will be some of the regions finest vintners and chefs. I will be sure to bring back many recipes to delight-albeit- healthy and traditional as well.
I will be posting some info on the recipes ad wines of this region later in the week, also stay tuned for some photos at the event.
And in the meantime, if anyone has a favorite recipe from that region, please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org Or if you have a recipe you are looking for that originates from that region, let me know also.
This is one of the cuisines of Italy that I have not spent a lot of time on and am excited to add a new set of ingredients and recipes- from the top chefs in that region- to my repertoire.
