New Chefs at the Bauers! Tell me more…
Many years of training and hard work are an integral part of the journey undertaken by each and every chef. To graduate from well-trained to truly a master of cuisine it takes an innate artistry, a character full of passion and the philosophical dedication to Food as an Art. Here at the Bauers, the consistent high-quality of the time you spend here with is our foremost concern, with food a huge part of this. So we have been extremely fortunate to have return to us after a five year absence after a decade of service Chef Giovanni Ciresa as chief culinary Consultant, and to welcome Chef Martino Longo, who becomes our new Executive Chef at De Pisis and Cosimo Riccardi who becomes our new Executive Chef at L’Ulivo.
The menu’s of Bauer Il Palazzo’s De Pisis and Bauer Palladio’s d’Ulivo restaurants are individually composed, but are both are seasonally designed to deliver the freshest available delicacies of each moment of the year. Chef Ciresa, Chef Longo and Chef Riccardi have composed a set of innovative menus which integrate the most exciting ingredients of the traditional tastes of the region with a fresh and modern international flair. Venetian cuisine is very special, and distinct from that of mainland Italy: once the Queen of the Sea, the maritime islands of Venice have had a much more international past than many inland locations. The busy sea-trade meant not just seafood but spices and exotic elements uncommon elsewhere – such as saffron – ‘zafferano’ – are now essential flavours. The local soils of the Veneto are also rich and deep, meaning produce, with vegetables from artichokes to onions and potatoes growing abundantly, all of which are now a part the unique offering of our tables.
After this little visual taste, we recommend a visit to see us; either surrounded by a verdant garden in d’Ulivo, or the sparking Grand Canal in De Pisis, our picturesque settings will help you to savour the flavour we have prepared with you in mind. For a dining experience to please the palate and the soul, for fine elegance with full flavour, you should look no further.
