The Veronese cuisine is appreciated at an international level because of the variety of its dishes: gnocchi (potato dumplings) and pasta with beans are among the most famous Veronese specialities, together with specialities from nearby towns-such as the risottos from Isola, tortellini from Valeggio, asparagus from Rivoli. All these dishes can be accompanied by the famous wines of Valpolicella, Recioto, Soave, Bardolino, Custoza, enjoyed all over the world. Verona has always had a great tradition for good food. In fact, the local noblemen, right from the very beginning, had achieved great fame for their splendid, convivial hospitality and the meals they knew how to offer during memorable receptions. Nowadays, this tradition is in the hands of the restaurant owners and inn-keepers of the province. They provide an important resource of culinary inspiration, with their choice dishes. Veronese art in the kitchen continues today with the work of "master-chefs" who create or improve on, prepare and "personalize" with a touch of refined good taste, secret recipes or ones that are already famous. Typical dishes: boiled beef with "pear" (sauce made of bread and pepper), "pastissada de caval" (horsemeat stew), gnocchi (jpotato dumplings), pasta e fagioli (pasta and beans). Veronese cakes "pandoro di Verona", "natalino" (both are special Christmas cakes), shortbread and "sfogliatine" (special flaky pastry biscuits).
