Description

Gabriella has been recreating traditional Veneto recipes for years, and the menu she offers us today takes us on a journey through the flavours and history of the region. There is a starter of local cheeses; Morlacco, Asiago from Allevo, Piave, Monte Veronese, and Bastardo del Grappa. These are followed by a honey selection; chestnut, acacia, lime wood and coriander. 

For the first course, Gabriella serves a classic risotto. The guests can choose which condiments they prefer; asparagus, peas, pumpkin flowers, or seasonal vegetables. For the second course, she makes "my dear Aunt's rabbit", stuffed with fresh pancetta and cooked in vinegar and wine. 

We round off on a sweet note with a sponge cake dusted with icing sugar with fresh vanilla and white chocolate ice-cream.

Gabriella is originally from Friuli, but has been living in Veneto a Tezze, a lovely town in the middle of the Vicentine countryside on the Brenta river, for over 40 years. Our Cesarina is particularly enamored with this area due to its proximity to art-filled cities such as Cittadella, Marostica, Bassano del Grappa, Possagno, Asolo and Castelfranco Veneto.

As a little girl Gabriella was already “fascinated by the aromas of the kitchen and by that great big pot hanging from a chain on top of the chimney”. As she grew up, our Cesarina began cooking for those close to her, relatives and friends, always searching for the real flavours of tradition. “My grandmother and aunts left me their recipe books filled with notes. That is where I found my authentic traditional recipes”.

The secret of the Cesarina
My grandmothers and aunts left me their recipe books filled with traditional recipes and notes.
