Info on Veneto Food (Po Basin)

Many crops grow well in the fertile Po Basin. Beans, radicchio, asparagus, pumpkins, squash, corn, celery, artichokes and cherries all lend themselves perfectly to Veneto’s cooking. Wine culture is strong in the region, with many types of whites and reds being produced there. Home wine and grappa making is a favorite hobby, and because of the excellent quality of the grapes, some home wines can rival commercial ones.

Olive has lots of good fats.“Good fats,” or unsaturated fats, are those responsible for lowering your total cholesterol and, in particular, your LDL cholesterol. These fats along with the fiber found in plants and vegetables,  are said to reduce your risk of heart disease

Rice production has been honed to a fine art in the region, with countless creamy risotto recipes giving testament to the fact that rice is as important as a component on the Veneto table as it is for the profit from its export. Cattle farming and the dairy industry are highly prized in this area (butter is often used instead of olive oil in cooking), and cheeses find their way into many dishes. The ever-present love of pork and cured meats ensures a strong pork production industry in Veneto as well.
