I will be in these two cities in mid-January and would love input on food (and non-food, too) items to add to my shopping list...and the best places to buy them in both cities. Already on the list are:
l. Tuna canned/jarred in olive oil (any recommendations on the best brands would be helpful..I usually buy either As Do Mar and Callipo)
2. Dried porcini mushrooms
Is it worth seeking out "artisinal" pasta?? I will probably give oil and vinegar a miss since I have lots of it right now and do not think the Veneto is the place for those anyway. What other goodies should I look for?????
So far my resolution NOT to bring my electric juicer (for blood oranges) is holding fast.
