Roses and Spices_Preview3Grandmother Lina has been a cooking instructor for all of her life. To celebrate her 95th birthday in December 2017, we will be sharing some of her culinary secrets!

In 2018, we will publish some of Lina’s recipes, culinary and beauty tips as ebooks and will launch an e-course series on delicious &ย easy & historical Venetian recipes. All about gourmet food, aromatherapy, perfumes and natural remedies.ย In the 1950s and 1960s, Lina taught the chefs at the grandi alberghiย on Riva degli Schiavoni how to cook historical Venetian recipes. In her own restaurants, Lina cooked for politicians, ambassadors and two future popes – John XXIII and John Paul I.

Growing up in the northern Lagoon, she was living in her family’s farm estate before returning to their home in Venice in 1945. When she bought Casa Fontana in 1968, Lina also inherited the library of this former monastery. She is still exchanging recipes, herbs and flowers with nuns and monks from monasteries in Venice and the Lagoon, such as San Lazzaro degli Armeni and San Francesco della Vigna.
