SERENA GENOVESE PHOTOGRAPHY -33
,

Now that the spring has definitely arrived, we can start organising our tours in the open air around the city!

One of our favourite activities for children and families is the one in which kids become painters for one day! We thought this tour as an opportunity to bring out the little artist that is in your children. The activity will be organised as a painting session in front of the of a typical Venetian gondola yard, with a visit afterwards to understand how the boats and gondolas are built. This is a place often frequented by painters because it is typical and very beautiful! Before and after, girls and boys will be accompanied by their tour guide in one of the most suggestive sestieri (districts of Venice) to catch the  right inspiration, drawing and painting down the most beautiful places.

Finally, to chill out and rest for a while, we propose to taste a big ice cream sitting in the sun at Fondamenta delle Zattere, to make your day even more special!

We saw in a precedent article that Venice is one of the safest place on earth. In fact, in the streets of this gorgeous island, there are no cars, motorcycles or bicycles to care about!

Kids are free to play a lot of games inside the famous campi (small squares) and to draw incredible masterpieces with colourful chalks on the Venetian ground.

It is a very simple game, but is the perfect way to enter in contact with the city, signing their passage in Venice and becoming part of the city itself! Sometimes children draw just some white lines, to play games with other kids, but usually they have more fun painting great and wide compositions with a lot of colours, surprising their parents!

If you were in Venice, what kind of subject would you paint on the ground?

The “salame al cioccolato” (literally, the chocolate salami) is one of the most famous Italian desserts. It is super yummy and really easy to make, also by kids!

You only need chocolate (200g), biscuits (300g), 2 eggs, sugar (100g) and butter (150g). To create it, you just have to follow the steps here below:

  • crumble the biscuits in a large bowl, then melt the chocolate in a double boiler and knead it with a wooden spoon, until it becomes creamy and without lumps. Let it cool.
  • When the butter is soft enough, knead it to the cream with a spatula, adding sugar, eggs and the melted chocolate.
  • Put everything in the biscuits bowl, put the dough into a sheet of baking paper and then roll it!
  • Then wrap the chocolate salami in an aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator, at least for two or three hours.

And now cut it in slices and taste it!

The push scooter, or how it’s named nowadays, the “gondola of the Venetian streets”, is now the most common mean of transportation in Venice, especially for kids!

But why Venetian are so crazy about it? Here below the awesome reasons:

  • it’s practical;
  • quite fast, but parents are still able to follow their children;
  • it’s light, so easy to handle also by kids;
  • it can be use mostly everywhere (but of course, not on bridges);
  • with it, boys and girls can have fun without losing too much energy.

And the most important of all: children love it!

Cooking delicious recipes
,

During our junior cooking class, kids and parents love to prepare delicious and traditional Venetian Fried Creams! If you want to try do it at home, here below you can find the recipe!

It’s a very simple dessert, and you can cook it also with your children for all the family (in this case, the recipe is for 6 people).

With olive oil, grease a baking sheet on a work surface.

In a little pot, heat one and half cups of milk warm, without making bubbling.

In another small cooker, put over low heat 4 eggs yolks, 3-4 cups of sugar, and one tablespoon of vanilla extract, and mix all together.

Then you have just to add two cups of flour, the warm milk that you have just cooked, and half a lemon, zested.

When it will became an homogenous cream, spread it using a spatula to form one layer of 3 cm thick on the baking sheet that you have prepared before. Put it in the fridge for minimum 2 hours.

After two hours, you can cut and divide with a knife the layer of cream into several different squares, in order to put them into a pot filled with extra virgin olive oil. While the oil gets warm, dredge with attention the creams through a little bit of flour, egg white and then through a little bit of bread crumbs. For the next step, just put the creams into the pot until they become golden brown.

At this point, you have to take the Venetian creams with a spoon and serve to your friends or family!

We will assure that they will love it!
