Beautiful rolling hills alongside picturesque villages and kilometers of vineyards, the splendid cities of art, such as romantic Verona where Shakespeare set his famous story of Romeo and Juliet, the sea and the priceless splendor of the Venetian lagoon, the region of Veneto contains landscapes so varied that it can only produce a varied gastronomy. A gastronomy influenced in a large part by the history and the open-minded culture of the most powerful of maritime republics. Corn and rice from the plains form the basis of the first courses of Veneto tradition, to the detriment of pasta that is surprisingly not particularly part of the culinary tradition. Risottos, on the other hand, have a rich patrimony of recipes, with rice combined with a variety of ingredients. Farther up in the mountains, the use of polenta accompanied by codfish is traditionally widespread. In Venice, cicchetti are a true specialty, delectable single portion dishes made from ingredients from both land and sea and served with a glass of wine.

A Simply Amazing Evening!
What a wonderful meal Chiara prepared and shared with us during our visit to her home. We had heard about the Le Cesarine program shortly before our trip to Italy (and how fortunate we were). [...] Particularly, if Florence is on your itinerary, we recommend an evening with our wonderful host, Chiara! Thank you Chiara and Le Cesarine!
Experience of a lifetime! 😍
We will not be able to say enough nice things about our dinner experience. [...] We will always book an experience like this when we return. There are not enough kind words, truly!
