Italian Food Tour in Hanoi – August – The Veneto Region

cucina_03cucina_07cucina_11Il Faro Italian Restaurant is celebrating the Veneto cuisine with a dedicated menu. Veneto is a rich region under many aspects, above all the gastronomic one. It’s easy to see why, given that Venice for centuries traded with distant lands in the East and the Venetians integrated the use of exotic spices into their recipes. The 4 key points are polenta, rice, cod and beans.

Some favourite Venetian Dishes: Sarde in Saor, sweet and sour sardines. Bigoli in Salsa, thick coarse spaghetti seasoned with a sardine and onion sauce. Risi e Bisi, risotto with beans and Bruscandoli, radicchio from Treviso which has many delicious varieties. Baccalà Mantecato, a creamy soft Cod mousse served with polenta. Fegato alla Veneziana, liver cooked with figs. Trotta in Gradela, delicately flavoured grilled trout, Filette di Coregone alla Gardesana, white fish baked with capers and anchovy fillets. Triglie al Cartoccio, reef mullets wrapped and coated with spices creating a heady burst of aromas. Frittelle, sweet fried dumplings and many more traditional Venetian dishes.

The dishes on offer each day will be subject to the fresh ingredients available locally in Hanoi.
