A delicious meal is always a great way to splurge on your holiday, but have you ever wondered about the history and meaning behind the cuisine you were eating? If so, you’ll want to check out Context Travel’s Annotated Dinner, which is taking place in Venice on September 27 at 7:30 pm.
Context Travel is a network of scholars that organizes walking seminars for travelers throughout Italy and Europe and for this event, sommelier and culinary expert Tamara Andruszkiewicz is putting together an evening of food and wine that will take you beyond the crowds of San Marco and into the rich history of Venice.
The event takes place at the Fiaschetteria Toscana, which contrary to having the word “Tuscany” in its name, is actually a quite traditional and well-respected Venetian restaurant. By working with the chef, Tamara will create a menu of seasonal Italian food that is tied to Venice. Each course will also be expertly paired with accompanying wine. Of course Venice’s location and fishing history dictates that much of the menu will be seafood based, so anyone with an aversion to fish may beware.
The four-hour dinner costs €155 (which includes a €95 multi-course meal and wine) and is open to 8 clients. So many travelers find it difficult to know where to find a decent meal in Venice, you might consider skipping out on the gondola ride and placing it here instead!
