eolo

Eolo - Slow Food in the Lagoon

Venice, past and present, is tied to the life of the sea. Here earth and sea meet and mix in history as well as in on the table. Through the ancient port of Venice came new foods and flavors that influenced and revolutionized eating habits throughout Europe. The East, with which the island city traded, brought spices and exotic fruits, such as raisins, to Venetian cuisine. Meanwhile, the lagoon put fish and game on the menu.
