The delicacies of Veneto
Veneto, called Veneto in Italian, is located in northeastern Italy. Its capital is the city of lovers - Venice. This region is situated between the Alps, Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea, and is famous for its delicious cuisine.
The Veneto region offers tourists plenty of cultural activities, amazing sights and a variety of entertainment. We can find here many seaside resorts, mountain towns, as well as great places to rest on Lake Garda. While relaxing in this region, it is worth seeing its capital - Venice and such extraordinary cities as Verona, Padua, Vicenza, Bibione and Mestre.
Veneto is also famous for the production of wines . In this category, it ranks third in Italy. This is where brands such as Soave, Valpolicella, Bardolino and Amarone come from.
The trail of Italian flavors
The Veneto region is famous for its risotto , but depending on where it is served, its taste may be slightly different. In Venice itself, we can taste the traditional form of this dish, while on the coast it is served with fish and seafood, in the central part of the region - with pumpkin, asparagus, radicchio or with frog legs.
The traditional dish of this part of Italy is pasta and beans - pasta e fagioli . We can also taste meat products , incl. soppressata sausage, made of coarsely cut cooked meat and spicy garlic salami. A well-known meat dish is beef carpaccio .
The Veneto region is one of the main producers of red radicchio lettuce and Bassano del Grappa asparagus . Pasta served in this part of Italy is called bigoli - it is served in the form of minestrone with dumplings or bigola d'anatra, i.e. thick threads, with duck sauce.
The most famous dish on the Adriatic Sea is stockfish , which is salted cod, which is prepared in various ways. Veneto, like all of Italy, also has delicious desserts . This region is characterized by tiramisu, corn cookies and pancakes with nuts and raisins.
In bars we can also find popular sandwiches, called panini , which are served with various additions, e.g. fried (with salmon, lettuce, butter and lemon juice), primavera (toasted bread with lettuce and ham), capri (ham, mozzarella cheese) , tomato, basil).
Olive oil is rarely used in the local cuisine of the region and is often replaced with butter. This is due to the fact that in Veneto, olive groves can only be found in the southern part of the region, on Lake Garda, where they are adjacent to wine growing.
