You surely know Donna Leon’s books, don’t you? These dark Venetian crime stories, with Commissario Guido Brunetti? The newest, twenty-fifth instalment in series - “In The Waters of Eternal Youth” - was published in April 2016! To celebrate this fortunate event I will cook a “Dinner for Commissario Brunetti”, because, as it happens, I have a cook book, written by Donna Leon and Roberta Pianaro, named “A Taste of Venice - at Table with Brunetti”. So I will cook typically Venetian favourites of Commissario and his beloved family. These dishes were mentioned in Mrs Leon’s books and she is the author who writes about food with genuine gusto :) I invite you to my tiny place in Warsaw’s district Żoliborz - yes, it IS tiny, but my table is really big, so everybody can sit comfortably! My food is inspired by my collection of cook books - I have more than thousand. In my kitchen I use ecological vegetables, eggs are always free range and other products come from tried-and-tested producers. Service will be led by my kids :) Note that the Menu can change slightly as I am doing my shopping the day before the dinner and I choose whatever is the best.
Some alcohol included Feel free to bring your own alcohol
Actually I am a specialist in international relations and wanted to be a diplomat... But my life turned out differently and now I love to cook, read about food and write about it, too. I like people. I like to feed them - it makes me happy. I collect cookbooks - in 7 languages! I have more than 1000 (but I read other books, too).
