Ciao, sono Monica Cesarato, ho 51 anni e sono una Food & Travel blogger italiana. Sono nata vicino a Venezia e praticamente ho sempre vissuto qui, a parte una pausa di 11 anni trascorsi nel Regno Unito. Oltre a scrivere di cucina veneziana e italiana, di Venezia e dell'Italia in generale, offro anche tour culinari della città e corsi di cucina veneziana. Faccio anche la Social Media Manager per varie aziende, tutte con sede a Venezia. Amo parlare di cibo e dell'Italia e condividere le mie esperienze sui Social Media.
Sarde in saor, meaning Sweet & Sour Sardines, are a philosophy of life in Venice. They are the sneakiest of cicchetti because they drip, you can’t hold them in your hand and you have to put the fish and onion all together in your mouth. In short, you have to surrender to the use of the fork.
I have been selected as Brand Ambassador for TuttoFood Milan, one of the biggest International Food & Wine fair in Italy from May 17th till 20th 2021!
TUTTOFOOD Milano is the international B2B show dedicated to food & beverage and organised by Fiera Milano - which will be held from 17th to 20th May 2021!
One thing I am looking really forward to do, when I will attend @tuttofoodmilano from 17th till 20th May 2021, is the going to watch all the different cooking shows by the most famous chefs in the world!
In these hard times, finally some excellent news for me!
When we talk about Venice and drinks, Bellini comes immediately to mind!
It is one of the first Cicchetti I get people to try when visiting Venice, but funny enough I have never actually talked about it on my blog before now!
So proud to have become a Brand Ambassador for @tuttofoodmilano - I get the chance to learn more about what I love, to meet the people who inspire me and to tell you all about it too!
A glass of Amarone, anyone?
But do you know how Amarone is made?
We are in full Autumn and what better than ButternutSquash to represent this wonderful season!
Che cosa bolle in pentola? Con il freddo arriva il tempo di brodo...per i tortellini ovviamente.. pronto da schiumare!
Autumn = Radicchio!
Perfect Veneto combo? Risotto with Radicchio
The feast of St. Martin is one of the most original Venetian traditions.
Zaeti or Zaleti biscuits are among the most popular biscuits in Venice.
One of the things I missed the most about not going to Venice and teaching people about Venetian Cicchetti and drinks around town?
Ok, I truly think today would be the perfect day for some comfort food - for me this would be some Pasta e Fasioi, the typical Veneto Bean Soup? For you?
Cinico will always be my favourite cocktail in Venice!
Bread: the food that unites the majority of the world’s civilizations!
I know you are all missing Venice! And I know you are all missing cicchetti!
