A Culinary Tour of Veneto: May 10, 2019
Veneto, in northeastern Italy, is where Venice and its famed canal rides are. Veneto is the culinary birthplace of classic Italian dishes like risotto and tiramisu, which go down well with Veneto wines like prosecco and merlot.
Meet Chef Massimo Capra
Besides the tasty food and wines you’ll get to sample during your meal, one of the best parts of the Niagara Falls Culinary Series is getting to meet Chef Massimo Capra. Massimo was born in Soresina, Italy, in the Lombardy region. He completed culinary training in Parma, and then went to work in Mestre, near Venice. You can see how the Culinary Tour of Veneto will be filled with lots of love, because Chef Massimo has actually worked there!
After creating culinary masterpieces at various resorts throughout Italy, including with Gallia Hotels in Milan, Chef Massimo moved to Toronto, Canada, in 1982. He has been in Canada for more than 35 years now and has become one of Canada’s brightest culinary stars. In addition to appearing on various television programs in Canada, Chef Massimo has also written several cookbooks. If you love your meal at the Niagara Falls Culinary Series, you could get one of Chef Massimo’s cookbooks to re-create his recipes in your own home.
