Episode #96 at Restaurant Bistrot de Venise!
in the heart of Venice, Italy, Bistrot de Venise is an utterly
charming place where your host Sergio Fragiacomo will make
you feel like one of the family!
de Venice is world renowned for its historical interpretations
of authentic Venetian recipes that date back to the 15th
century. Bistrot de Venice is also known for being a hot-spot
for poets and artists alike, who come and spend time in
this Venice bistro to sip wine and find their inspiration
for their next creative works.
Chef Antonio Bufi takes us through a couple of these historical
dishes, including Risotto with Peas and Sturgeon with Cherry
Sauce and White Garlic!
Antonio is absolutely a character, and lights up the kitchen
with his singing and Groucho Marx-like facial expressions!
We’re also joined by Chef Alessandro who helps prepare
the Risotto as well.
we’re so blessed to enter the pastry kitchen and meet
up with Pastry Chef Francesca Luri! Francesca has a smile
that is warmer than all of the baking ovens in Venice put
together, and prepares a lovely Torte Bianca, which is also
a dessert recipe from the 15th century!
de Venise also cultivates relationships with unique wineries
in North Eastern Italy and the surrounding area to Venice,
offering a variety of wines that are outstanding in every
sense of the imagination.
when in Venice, stop by at Bistrot de Venice and enjoy a
fantastic lunch or dinner after strolling the alleyways
and canals, taking the steps back in time that connect us
all to a simpler, sweeter time!
