Grandmother 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 Lina’s carefully collected knowledge as books and ebooks, and will also launch an e-course series on delicious & easy & historical Venetian recipes for food, aromatherapy, perfumes and natural remedies. In the 1950s and 1960s, Lina taught the chefs at the grandi alberghi to cook Venetian historical recipes. In her own restaurants in Venice, 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 own farm house before returning to the family 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, such as San Lazzaro degli Armeni and San Francesco della Vigna.
