Friends had warned me that it was hard to find good food in Venice, but I didn't really believe them. I went to the Venice Film Festival to celebrate the premiere of Meek's Cutoff (which I'm proud to have taken a part in the making of). Disappointingly, the best meal I had was at the airport (a plate of prosciutto di San Daniele) All of the food was pretty mediocre. In general it was bland and oily.Corte Sconta is one exception, it's part of an association of restaurants who's aim is to use fresh, local ingredients in keeping with Venice's ancient food culture. We started with spider crab pate.
Salmon with red berries
Tuna carpaccio Tiny clams in ginger broth Crustaceans: Octopus, squid, baby shrimp, cod, prawns Squid ink spaghetti with mussels and squid I can't remember what kind of fish this was (sea bass?)
I’m single. So I eat out a lot, and I have time to kill. In my free time, I like going to the farmer’s market and Murray’s Cheese and watching cooking shows. I like buying cookbooks and trying out dishes that I would use to woo a potential mate. Usually I cook for my friends.
This site will be about my eating and cooking experiences. It will be hard not to put some stuff in here about the rest of my life too.
Joe came up with the name EATDAVELOVE. It’s dumb but it’s appropriate.
