the edible treasures of Venice

While Venetian history is well-documented, the culinary heritage of the Republic of Venice is less well known. Our new project "Roses and Spices: The Fragrant World of Venice" shares the historical recipes for food, natural remedies and perfumery of the Republic of Venice distilled from forgotten books at the Venetian State Archive and other public and private libraries.
