Spicy Lobster Linguini

Spicy Lobster Linguini, Venetian Republic by Nino Zoccali. Copyright © 2020. Photographs by Alan Benson.

Venetian RepublicThe food of the Venetian Republic is diverse: prosecco & snapper risotto, Croatian roast lamb shoulder with olive oil potatoes, the sweet & sour red mullet of Crete, zabaglione from Corfu, or Dubrovnik’s ricotta & rose liqueur crepes.

These are recipes steeped in history; dishes from the days when Venice was a world power. How did this small city-state rule the waters of the Mediterranean, enjoying unrivalled wealth and prestige? How could this serene, safe-haven city of canals come to play a defining role in shaping the cuisine, culture, and architecture of her Mediterranean neighbours? Yet, for a thousand years, the ships and merchants of the Republic dominated salt, silk, and spice trade routes.

To tell this story, respected writer and restaurateur Nino Zoccali focuses on the four key regions that geographically encapsulate the Venetian Republic, each of which has its own distinct cuisine: Venice and its lagoon islands; the Veneto, of which Venice is the capital; the Croatian coast and the Greek Islands formerly under Venetian rule. The 80 dishes he has selected all have strong traditional Venetian roots or influence, celebrating ingredients and techniques that show how, to this day, food in this magnificent region continues to be influenced by neighbouring cultures.

Beer-Battered Fish and Chips, Rustic Joyful Food Generations, Photography by Michael Kartes.

Rustic Joyful Food: GenerationsDanielle Kartes grew up poor, though it never felt that way to her. She was privy to much as a child, but it wasn’t until having her own children that she fully understood the effort made by her mother to their family comfortable during times of financial hardship. There was always food on their table and it was always delicious. Whether it was veggies from the family garden or “hamburger soup,” Danielle learned from her mother not just to cook but to feed people.

There is a food Renaissance beginning. People are taking greater care in cooking again, figuring out how to eat better and how to get back to those days of slow-cooked, homegrown food while balancing a career and family. Rustic Joyful Food is about life and Generations is about the past that will always touch our present and continue to shape our future.

The recipes in this book are simple and delicious. They are meant to remind you how special family time is and how important memories made around food truly are. Inside you’ll find: (more…)
