Wild herbs and beauty of the Venetian lagoon

by Anna Gilchrist Sant’Erasmo is one of those places that is known by few but known very well by those few. Just a stone’s throw away from the well-known Calli and Campos of Venice’s bustling center (click here for Vaporetto information). However, it remains relatively untrodden because despite being an integral part of the history of Venice and its inhabitants, the Islands can be an intimidating prospect without the knowledge of what to expect. That is what we went to discover. With the confident eyes of Tiberio we learnt about the hundreds of vegetables and plants that naturally thrive in the unique environment of the Lagoon and are currently under appreciated. As we walked amongst the towering herbs and uncut flowers the inspiration for recipes was palpable and it is unbelievable to think that they still remain such a mystery to most of us.   From just the one afternoon that we were lucky enough to spend cycling around, we encountered countless characters, all with their own role and stories about the Island. Unfortunately when we arrived …

MUSAC MOVES FROM BERLIN TO VENICE

Dear friends, Now it’s official: we moved from Berlin to …Venice, Italy! During the upcoming months, here we’ll be doing a lot of food and art projects, as private chefs and also  as curators and co-founders of a new, exciting cultural adventure called “bocchediporto“. With bocchediporto we are planning a series of underground dinners hosted in the most fascinating places (sometimes hidden and not open to the public!) in town and in the islands of the lagoon. These are going to be unique, exclusive experiences where our guests will be able to enjoy a “total artwork” where everything is built and designed to create a dialogue between visual arts, architecture, history, food and people that will be always different and very special. We’ll be updating soon our blog with the next events…in the meantime you can always contact us here See you in Venice! Chiara and Marco Metti una Sera a Cena

Orange and Artichokes. Some like it raw!

Last Friday we really enjoyed shopping at the local market, where we found just amazing fragrant and sweet oranges and some fresh and delicious artichokes called “Violetto di Sicilia”. With few simple ingredients (but you need them to be absolutely good, fresh and…in season) you can make a very tasty (raw and vegetarian) appetizer, in a more interesting version of a traditional artichoke Carpaccio, seasoned with orange juice and honey…yummy!!! Carpaccio di Carciofi con vinaigrette al miele e all’arancia, Parmigiano     Artichokes Carpaccio with honey and orange vinaigrette, Parmesan leaves For 4 Servings 3 very fresh artichokes lemon 1 orange (juice) honey, salt, pepper extra virgin olive oil parmesan Cleanse the artichokes removing leaves until it’s soft. Cut the end, remove the stem, and cut the artichoke in half. make the same for all the artichokes left. Put them in a bowl with water and lemon juice (this way they will not turn black). Slice the artichokes thinly, season them with salt, pepper, olive oil and a vinaigrette made with orange juice and honey. Add some …

Autumn salad with figs, raw ham, goat cheese and hazelnuts

Let’s have a bite of Autumn! It’s time to play with seasonal ingredients and warm, intense flavours in this time of the year. This “salad” is a variation on the Italian classic “Prosciutto e Fichi”: we added hazelnuts to give  the dish a crunchy texture and creamy goat cheese. It’s a last minute appetizer, fancy but easy to prepare and most of all…delicious! For 4 persons 4 black figs 8 slices of raw ham wild salad edible flowers fresh goat cheese honey peeled hazelnuts salt & pepper Extra virgin olive oil Wash and prepare all the ingredients: cut the hazelnuts, figs and the prosciutto slices. In a bowl, mix goat cheese and honey until creamy and smooth, you will use this mixture to make small “quenelles” to finish the salad simply using two tea spoons. Put the wild salad on the serving plates, trying to make a nice background for all the other ingredients. Then add ham, figs (we suggest to season them with some honey as well ;)) flowers and the small goat cheese …

Missing Summer…a bite of France

It was one year ago when we enjoyed a very nice holiday in the South West of France, in Aquitaine, after being in Paris for a pop up shop event with our accessory label MARC ANDERSEN. During these autumn days, we miss so much the ocean, drinking fresh white wine and eating mussels close to the beach…and that amazing atmosphere of other times you can “smell” in Biarritz…enjoy some shoots of this nice trip!
