GARUM is a Partnership of Mediterranean institutions dedicated to the enhancement of the coastal culinary tradition, which takes its name from a key food in the diet of the ancient Romans.
Together with Itervitis, the European Route of Wine Culture, we are proposing to research and experiment the many “fish recipes for the celebrations”, which narrate about landscapes and material cultures, so profound and so different, along the Mediterranean coasts.
Garum is inspired by the family experience of a recipe inherited from the nineteenth-century history of Portorecanati. Pending the construction of the European project, we decided to offer it immediately, to an interested and specialised audience.
BRODETTO is a culinary experience dedicated to those who want to share it with their guests, and immerse themselves in the food and wine culture of the sea that unites us, the Adriatic. An experience thus described by Carla Ferraro:
“The gold of velvets.
We are not talking about the rich Venetian fabrics, but about a precious broth from the Marche region: two warps with a single weave.
Giovanni Velluti’s recipe is linked to Porto Recanati, after having crossed the whole Mediterranean. She was born in that sea and from there she took off, while keeping her secret.
A woman, Vanna, was her loving guardian and passed on that authentic knowledge to her son.
He now wishes to share the velvety and enveloping flavor of a secular culture.
Francesco prepares the Velluti soup with the same love that is felt for a grandfather, with the same skill of the mother’s hands and with a renewed competence. He knows the original recipe, the fundamental steps for perfect original success, but adds his knowledge on the origin, history, tradition of a dish that is the heritage of the peoples who live on the mare nostrum.
And from the great weavers of Venice, where he studied architecture, he learned that a golden thread can transform velvets into works of art, as a touch of precious saffron manages to change a fish soup into a masterpiece: the soft, tasty, amber, excellent brodetto Velluti.
The plot of this succulent story can take place in our home, in the kitchen and then around a table ready to welcome flavors and knowledge. The chef-architect offers excellent food for the body, nourishment for the mind and enthusiasm for the spirit.”
