In the shadows of the marvellous Carrara castle, Annalisa offers us traditional dishes of Paduan cuisine. We start with an appetizer of folk tradition: 'fasoi' beans in Brentana, or bean stew, accompanied by a yellow Marano polenta with sausage.

This is followed by a first course of traditional Venetian cuisine: rice served served in a soup of "risi e verse", savoy cabbage and pork loin.  For the second course, Annalisa serves a fabulous Paduan gran bollito (boiled meat), accompanied by traditional 'fritegà' herbs, such as catalogna, spinach, and radicchio, which are boiled and then fried with garlic. There is also cabbage 'sofegà', a typical Venetian dish made of cabbage marinated in wine and vinegar.

Finally, our Cesarina delights us with Paduan 'fugassa', a dessert of folk tradition originally prepared for festive, religious, or familial occasions: a sweet leavened bread, similar to colomba pasquale or pandoro.

"I live in a small village in the City of Veggiano called Rambacche, a name which originally meant "between the waters," an indication of the peninsula formed by the Tesina and Bacchiglione rivers. I was born and raised on a farm, where I lived with my large family - my grandparents, my Aunt Clorinda and her brother Gino with his wife and kids, my mother, my father, and my brother. It was there that I began as a child handling the 'mix' and the rolling pin to make pasta, flour and water to make bread, and the pot to make polenta."

We go from these words to the dishes of Annalisa, who, in her beautiful house, offers us several traditional specialties of Paduan cuisine.

The secret of the Cesarina
I started as a child to handle the 'mix' to make pasta and the pot to make polenta.
