Ceci n'est pas un poster : why ?

"If you ask a Venetian which is the most famous dish, he will probably answer Risi e bisi (rice and peas). In spring the best peas from the lagoon gardens were harvested, together with the onion and served on April 25, the feast of St. Mark (el bocolo), al doge.Today it is considered one of the typical dishes of the Veneto, even if the origin is most likely Byzantine; in fact, the oriental peoples, who had intense trade with the Venetians, often accompanied the rice with vegetables all types. An illustration that wants to tell the story and the strong culinary culture of the Veneto, a cuisine made of poor but very fresh ingredients. On the other hand, all the grandparents cooked this dish."
