Product description

Review

"They (Essa & Edenbaum) know the little secrets. This is the sort of book that makes you wish longingly to know as much as they do". Bill Marsano, Wine Editor, Hemispheres Magazine"

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Venetians generally eat prima colazione (breakfast) like most Italians – a quick espresso or cappuccino taken with a brioche or pastry, often consumed standing up at a bar. Italians drink espresso at all times of the day and night; in fact, the response to a request for un caffè is an espresso. Cappuccino is only ordered by Venetians before 10:30 A.M. but it is fine (though tourist-like) to do so after this time. It is considered uncouth to have milk in your coffee in the evening. If you order a latte, be prepared for a glass of steamed milk; order a caffè latte if you want coffee mixed with steamed milk. You will often see a Venetian start the day with a caffè corretto (espresso with a small shot of grappa or other liquor), or a tumbler of amaro (a bitter, herbal digestive). It is not uncommon to see the first ombra (small glass of wine) tossed back as early as 8:00 A.M., especially in the Rialto market where some of the vendors have been awake for hours, making 8:00 A.M. considerably later in their day than it may be in yours. Croissants are also called brioche, briosca and cornetti; they come con marmellata which almost always means apricot jam, or con crema, with a custard filling. Whole-wheat croissants with blueberry filling, flaky almond pastries and krapfen – deep-fried puffs of dough filled with jam or cream - are other popular choices in pastry shops and bars. Hot tea, hot chocolate and sometimes fruit juices are available. If you do not see fresh oranges and a juicer you may well get a bottle or can of juice. Standing up at the bar is universally the least expensive way to have breakfast. Extra charges are usually added if you sit at a table and/or are served by a waiter. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
