Monica Cesarato Andar Per Bacari Venice Cicchetti

Hello, I’m Monica Cesarato, a proud native of Venice, Italy, deeply rooted in the vibrant culinary and cultural tapestry of my homeland.

As a Food and Travel blogger, I embark on a journey through the alleys of Venice, the countryside of Veneto, and the expansive landscapes of Italy, sharing the stories of flavors, traditions, and hidden gems that define each region. 

My passion for preserving and celebrating Venetian culinary heritage led me to pen a book dedicated to Cicchetti, the beloved small bites of Venice. Through various television appearances, I’ve had the privilege of showcasing the charm and flavors of Venice, bringing its essence to a global audience.

Since 2008, my blog has been a cherished platform where I delve into the intricacies of Venetian life, uncovering cultural nuances, spotlighting craftsmen, and artisans. In addition, my podcast, Venice Talks, serves as an auditory voyage through the soul of Venice.

In the bustling culinary scene of Venice, I’m an active participant, collaborating with esteemed personalities such as Alex Polizzi and Eugene Levy, sharing insights and experiences that enrich the narrative of Italian cuisine.

Beyond blogging and podcasting, I wear many hats – from conducting cooking classes to leading food and wine tours, critiquing restaurants, and now, proudly, as an author. My latest work, “Andar per Bacari,” now available in English, offers a glimpse into the unique concepts, flavors, and traditions of Venice.

Join me in exploring the energetic world of Venetian cuisine, where every dish tells a story, and every bite is a journey through time and tradition. I am Monica Cesarato, and I invite you to savor the flavors of Venice with me. Buon Appetito!
