You chose: prosecco

  • Prosecco is the largest selling sparkling (spumante) wine in Italy. Italians drink it as an aperitif (no self- respecting Roman or Venetian goes out to dinner without having a glass of Prosecco first), with food, and to celebrate. I was invited to be one of the judge at a Prosecco & Pizza Competition
  • A traditional dish from the Veneto region: risi e bisi
    Even if Lago di Garda stretches across three Italian regions—Lombardy to the west, Veneto to the east, and Trentino Alto Adige to the north—each guards its regional differences zealously, as do all Italian regions, especially when it comes to food. Because we couldn’t take into account the different regional varieties in this short piece on local gastronomy, we chose to concentrate on Veneto.

    Risi e bisi, which simply means rice and peas in the Venetian dialect, is the most famous of all risottifrom the region. In the days of the Venetian Republic, it was served before the Doge on April 25, the feast of San Marco and the national day. In Veneto, risotti are served all’onda, which literally means "on the waves." In fact, it means with quite a lot of liquid, rather like the city of Venezia itself.

    The latest data from Coldiretti, Italy's leading organization of farmers, says that for the end of year festivities 190 million bottles of Prosecco, bubbly made in Italy, will be uncorked all over the world. Coldiretti speaks of a record breaking amount of bottles: there has been an increase of 13% of bottles exported abroad only in the first nine months of 2015 as Prosecco has become Italy's sparkling wine that is most cherished outside of the country.
