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 …

When Piemonte meets Veneto

It’s “Radicchio season”, but more especially it’s the time of the year when you can enjoy one of the most interesting and tasty vegetables of our region, Veneto: we are talking about Radicchio di Treviso “tardivo”. This amazing vegetable was created in the 19th Century by a Belgian agronomist, Van Den Borre. The tecnique to obtain the look of the Tardivo is called Imbianchimento (whitening): the vegetables are harvested late, then put through a forced second growth immersed for 15 days in tanks filled with spring water at a temperature of 13° in a few light. This makes the plants grow again, become intensely red with their long white “fingers”, blooming excactly like flowers. It has a delicate and at the same time intense unique bitter taste. It’s perfect roasted in the oven, raw in a salad, to make Risotto…today we’ll serve it roasted in the pan with hazelnuts and another great product from the Northwest Italy: the Tomino Boscaiolo, a delicious cow’s milk cheese from Piemonte. Roasted Radicchio Tardivo di Treviso, Hazelnuts, Tomino Boscaiolo …

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!
