Recipes from Friuli Venezia Giulia

The traditional recipes of Friuli Venezia Giulia, the Italian region where I live, are the ones that make me feel most at home.

As well as on the map, also in Friulian cuisine, the borders between Italy, Austria, and Slovenia become one, in a unique mix made up of simple but tasteful dishes.

The basic ingredients of the traditional recipes of Friuli Venezia Giulia are simple and mostly poor. If they are no longer poor it is only modern times and the power of the Made in Italy brand that have made them gourmet.

When used properly they create stratospheric dishes that you can also make in your kitchen with the simple recipes you find here. Or, you can visit Friuli Venezia Giulia and try these dishes in one of our restaurants. I’m sure they’ll make you gasp and wonder “Am I really in Italy?

Not just recipes from Friuli Venezia Giulia

To respond to the greediness of those who live in this virtual hut, the traditional food of Friuli Venezia Giulia is not enough. That’s why you will also find some “heart-warming” recipes that will make your mind fly to a mountain hut with wooden walls, a lit stove, and the woods outside.
