Half day in Venice

dailybreakfast.net venice biennale 2015 1 piazza san marco

Two weeks ago I took a train to Venice to reach my friend Erica during the opening days of the Biennale.
We had an aperitivo in the bar at The Gritti Palace, designed by Riva, we ran through the city to see as much as possible – including Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana – we had dinner at Osteria al Mascaron owned by the father of Alberta, one of my best friend.

The day after, Erica left for Rome in the morning and I had only few hours before coming back to Milan to enjoy exhibitions and pavilions in the Arsenale and the Giardini della Biennale.

I’m addicted to lemon curd but I wanted to try a lighter version replacing butter with olive oil, and why not… a lemon with an orange!
