A love letter to the storied city of Venice, with 100 irresistible recipes, 150 sumptuous photos, and evocative essays that will bring the beauty of its cuisine into home kitchens everywhere.

Charming, illusive, and endlessly mysterious, Venice is a top travel destination that is accessible to all, yet seems almost to belong to another world and time. To find the true heart of this fabled city, to find real Venetians and experience the local fare, you need a guide. Skye McAlpine has lived in Venice for most of her life. Born in London, her family moved there when she was six years old. Traveling by gondola, enjoying creamy risi e bisi (Venetian-style rice and peas) for lunch, splashing through streets that flood when the tide is high--this is her everyday life. Daily rhythms are established by markets, mealtimes, and afternoon spritzes.

Like other regions of Italy, Venice has its own distinct cuisine. As an ancient maritime city, it is at once local and global, combining risotto and zabaione custard with exotic spices and ingredients from neighboring countries. From Rum and Raisin Bread, Thick Hot Chocolate with a Dollop of Zabaione, and Focaccia with Gorgonzola and Walnuts, to Ravioli with Pumpkin and Truffle Filling, Risotto with Zucchini Flowers and Scampi, and Chocolate and Amaretto Roulade, Skye's cookbook has traditional Venetian food covered.

A Table in Venice takes readers to this city to share in cooking traditional Venetian dishes using the methods and styles Skye learned from her neighbors and friends. The stunning photography and beautiful storytelling will bring this lovely city to life like never before.
