Venetian Cicchetti

Discover the story
Cocktail hour is calling and we have got your Venetian appetizer ready to go

If you haven’t heard of Cicchetti (pronounced chuh·keh·tee) let us introduce you to what might become your new easy-to-make picky. Cicchetti are small snacks served in Venice (and around the region) along with a beautiful glass of wine or a Venetian Spritz.

Similar to a charcuterie board, Cicchetti can be visually impressive and offer ready-to-eat bite-sized snacks that can be made both savory and sweet. We have four easy versions for you to try all inspired by Studio21padova.

WOT we love about this recipe: Is its versatility — You can make them any way you like. Seriously, feel free to get very creative! The key to getting the most flavor and variety is to prepare parts ahead of time, refrigerate, and then plate 30 minutes before serving.
