There's an unseen island in the midst of the Lagoon, overgrown with elderflowers and acacia. Herons and sea gulls nest in this wilderness, which was once one of the lushest monastery gardens in Venice. This island is called Madonna del Monte, a forgotten spot in the northern Lagoon, next to San Francesco del Deserto and Sant'Erasmo. And it plays a special role in the Lagoon, which is why we put it on the cover of the e-book dedicated to Nonna Lina's life in the Lagoon and in Venice, and to her delicious recipes.
In 1988, Lina published two books called Le Mie Ricette: Recipe she learned to cook from her grandmother, dishes she cooked in her three restaurants in Venice. Recipes from the Lagoon where she grew up during the second world war before returning home to Venice in 1945. Menus she cooked for famous guests and artists like Marino Marin or Pope John Paul I who were regular guests at her dinner table.
This second edition of Le Mie Ricette will be in English, published as e-book on 01 October 2020. We will added a few of her own creations she developed during the past 30 years: Personal favorites, and festive Venetian menus, such as the marzipan-blackberry summer tart or the manna-apple-Christmas cake. All recipes use natural ingredients, fruit and herbs of the Lagoon.
We chose recipes that are easy to make and whose ingredients are available internationally, so you can taste Lina's Venetian flavors at home!
