A fascinating take on Venice, a city that for many reasons I always feel as my own. I always get 'lost' when I visit, it is part of the fun. I use the recipe of my grandmother's for zaeti, way richer than this one and with no yeast. I guess that after the war they could not wait to eat richer food. I don't feel inclined to play with it for sentimental reasons: any other version of zaeti would not taste right for me.


Simo, ma qui hai fatto davvero uno studio sui zaletti con excursus sulla gondola ^______^ bravissima!!!! grazie per l'abbecedario.... io invece anche questa volta non sono riuscita a partecipare ;-(

I read Innocents Abroad in college but need to go back and read it again I think. I love the shape you made these little cakes--so pretty.

Thanks again for a wonderful event. I plan on being more dialed in and joining in the next one too. ;-)

Simona Carini

I can totally understand, Caffettiera. You have a strong connection with a specific recipe. I am freer to experiment. I am glad you agree that getting 'lost' in Venice is part of the fun.

Non ti preoccupare, Marta, sara' per la prossima edizione. Ho una specie di fissa per la gondola e infatti sto meditando un altro dei miei libretti creativi sul tema. Vediamo cosa viene fuori.

Hi Deb. What Twain likes, what he dislikes (food!) and what he fixes his attention upon are all interesting details. You are more than welcome: I am so glad you joined the event. The next edition will be in about three months.


Twain was a son of the Mississippi river, so that's why I suppose he found Venice's waterways so fascinating. His language is so beautiful!

Thank you for hosting this special event. I think it is one of the UNIQUEST EVENTS available for cooking blogs. I participated once before, but unfortunately I missed the previous two announcements. That won't happen again, because now I've subscribed to your blog. Once again, thank you.

Hi Ana. Very interesting observation: I had not thought about it. He was very intrigued by the way moving on water was integrated into the Venetian life, so that everyday activities, like going to work or shopping involved water transportation. Thank you so much for your kind words. I am glad you enjoy the event and look forward to having you again in the next edition.
