Introducing Italy's best kept secret. The cuisine of the Veneto.

Food-writer, cook and photographer Valeria Necchio shares the food and flavours at the heart of the Veneto region in North Eastern Italy.

Veneto includes lovingly written recipes that capture the spirit of this beautiful and often unexplored region, and Valeria's memories of the people and places that make the Veneto so special.

Veneto is packed with wonderful fresh ingredients and lively flavours that combine to make the Veneto region a real gem amid Italy's culinary landscape.

The recipes range from the dramatic black cuttlefish stew, through soups, pastas and risottos, a mouthwatering selection of Italian sweet treats, and sweet and savoury preserves for your pantry to ensure year-round deliciousness.

"Veneto is a great book to savor and to cook from. It should send many off to Veneto, or to scour up some wild hop shoots, or at the very least, off to the kitchen to cook up something wonderful." STARRED REVIEW, Foreword
"Necchio's first cookbook is a leisurely word-stroll through the events, people, smells, and tastes that formed her cuisine character. Stories and photographs illustrate every recipe, technique, and tip in the 100-plus recipe collection, redolent of the Venetian countryside. She's quick to note that through food, "I came to truly appreciate the place I'm from," and she pays tribute to the region's classic and modern dishes, all bearing the mark of "la cucina degli ingredienti" food that prioritizes good ingredients over fancy preparation. Lavish introductions and beautiful color photography enhance that philosophy. Unusual ingredients are explained, and substitutions are offered for non-European cooks. In a number of cases, she shares nonrecipes that nonetheless provide educational tidbits on habits and ingredients (such as charcuterie, or prosciutto and figs). There's a great opportunity to mix familiar with fresh: tiramisu and raspberries with rose wine, aubergine stew, and sea-bass parcels. And her finale gifts us with different ways to preserve the seasons: white asparagus in oil, pickled baby onions, and grappa-soaked cherries."
--Booklist, Starred Review
"In this inviting cookbook, Life Love Food blogger Necchio offers family recipes from her home region of the Veneto as well as other recipes she has gathered since moving away from the area. ... Necchio writes in lovely elegiac prose about her small hometown (a place she couldn't wait to flee but now, of course, misses), and the recipes themselves are clear and appealing, no matter from which time in the author's life they originate."
--Publishers Weekly
" https: // "A fabulous addition to the regional cookbook section of your shelf (doesn't everyone have one of those !), this beautifully written and photographed book gives you the opportunity to zero in on a lesser-known area: Veneto -- not the city of Venice, but the countryside village in Northeastern Italy where the author Valeria Necchio grew up."----Martha Stewart Magazine, named one of the Best Cookbooks of 2017
