To mention some famous Venetian dishes: 

Spritz

Who doesn’t know or has never sipped a “Spritz”? Since 2011 “also known as Venetian Spritz” by IBA, the international bartender association, it is undoubtedly the most famous alcoholic long drink in Italy. This cocktail has a rather deep-rooted history. “Spritz” was born in Veneto and from there it spread the ritual of the Italian apéritif first throughout our peninsula and then around the world. Its origins date back to 1800, when in the Lombard-Veneto Kingdom the troops of the Austrian empire used to lengthen the local wines, for them too alcoholic, with a splash of sparkling water. It is from “spritzen”, the German term that describes this custom, that the name “Spritz” derives! 

Appetizers and Cicheti

In Venice, “cicheto” is a snack, something quick that often goes with a glass of wine or spritz. In every bar, cafeteria, on tables in every square of this amazing city “appetizers and Cicheti” are consumed at any hours during the day or night.

We are in “Venice” in the first half of the 13th century when, due to the intensification of commercial traffic, the Government of “Venice” was forced to establish two customs offices:one in the “San Marco basin”(Punta della Dogana alla Salute), for the goods arriving in ships by sea; and one in “Rialto”, for the weighing of those coming with wagons from the mainland. On the streets of “Rialto” we met then to trade, we drank and ate hastily small portions of food (the future “cicheti” served by “bacari” from the Latin “ciccus”, meaning very small quantities), which were used to absorb the wine drunk and not get drunk already early in the morning.

The variety of “cicheti” now ranges from the most ancient and traditional to the modern ones, given by the creativity of the host or by express request of the customer. Being small quantities, they are always taken with toothpicks, There are really more than hundreds different variety of “cicheti” so we give you just an idea about the most typical :“Months vovi co ‘l’aciugheta (half eggs with anchovies): they are nothing more than “hard-boiled eggs” cut in half, seasoned with “salt, pepper and oil, garnished with an anchovy in oil.” Nerveti coe segoe (nerves with onions): the nerves are part of the fifth quarter bovine. In “Venice”, since the Middle Ages, they have been eaten boiled, cut into small pieces, seasoned with “thinly sliced onion, salt, pepper, oil, and marinated in vinegar”.Polpete”(meatballs). They are also prepared in the variants of” tuna and eggplant”, but the classic Venetian ones are those of meat, traditionally prepared with leftover boiled meat and ground with “iuganega” (long sausage) or ham or mortadella. It all blends together with an egg, a nice grated Parmesan cheese, a boiled and “fransada potato” (coarsely mashed with the tines of a fork) to keep the dough soft, and a little minced garlic. Neither small nor very large balls form and crush. After passing them directly into the breadcrumbs, they are “fried” in abundant oil. They are good both hot and cold.
