History of the Venetian cuisine

It’s a walking tour through the streets of Venice in search of traces of the gastronomic culture of the city, which is also anything but obvious! Starting from the very first lagoon recipes dating back to the times when Venice was only one of the provinces of Byzantium, passing through the riot of spices brought by trade with the Levant, through a dizzying series of foreign contamination, you get to the kitchen of today, or at least what survives.
