The result of collaboration between farmers, cattle farmers and restaurateurs, the new Jesolo a Tavola guide continues to take a fresh look at the fusion of excellence with pleasure: local pride, respect for nature and an inexhaustible passion for food form the common denominator for the people involved in this much anticipated and long-running initiative. The food and wine guide of reference for international and italian tourism, Jesolo a Tavola offers to come with you on a voyage of aromas, tastes and colours, a journey where love of tradition and a sense of curiosity for the new meet and reinvent themselves in total agreement. JAT 2012 is a guide, which will satisfy the wishes of any gourmet visiting the Jesolo coast.
Jat guide: the taste trails
The appreciation of our territory goes hand in hand with celebrating those tastes we’re offered by our natural surroundings. This is our resort’s strong point, i.e. using exclusively produce that the land and sea offer us according to the seasons. This Guide is evidence of our culinary and professional experiences, both classic and contemporary, displaying the perfect balance of the Jesolo coastline, tied to tradition and yet at the same time attracted by the new. In these pages, you will discover a special selection of food and wine, which will have been well worth the wait: a walk in a universe overflowing with flavour.

It’s that time again
Now in its 17th year, Jesolo a Tavola is here once more, right on time for its rendezvous with every good food lover.
The guide’s ever-increasing number of followers spurs us on to becoming
even more committed to communicating the philosophy of our territory’s
restaurateurs and producers: a standard that refuses to compromise when it comes to quality.
JAT 2012 is an editorial project looking to encourage its numerous readers,
both abroad and at home, to get to know this vast heritage through taste pathways.
Jesolo a Tavola, to be tasted using all the senses.
Products from the Veneto and the Jesolo coastline, guaranteed quality to protect the consumer
Work, solidarity, commitment and quality of life: the Veneto is a
region of values where material components are also important.
This is why we have a high standard of living for our citizens,
where gastronomic pleasure is central and consumers can count
on added value that satisfies all their needs and expectations.
Agroindustrial excellence is not just a question of taste, but also of objective figures and the quality and taste of the Veneto region are found in an enormous range of food products whose characteristics go far beyond the minimal requirements imposed by law.
The area has 16 Protected Denomination of Origin products, 18 Protected Geographical Indication products, 27 Controlled Denomination of Origin wines and 11 Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin wines, as well as 7 Typical Geographical Indication products that combine typical features, quality and quantity. The position of excellence that our region has earned within Europe is completed by another 367 traditional products.
In short, we are Italy’s leading region for denominated products and the second for traditional specialities, which include virtually all categories of agroindustrial products: meat, fruit and vegetables, cheese, pulses and rice, etc. We have the utmost in taste, quality, safety and guarantees. Every area has its 0 km treasures,
produced by the local countryside and nature’s rhythms and seasons.
The Jesolo – Cavallino – Treporti coastline has, for example, a vast range of extremely valuable local produce that is well worth discovering and tasting: tomatoes and jujubes from Cavallino, yellow plums from Lio Piccolo, as well as barena honey, Montine bitter green asparagus, the fagiolino meraviglia (mangetout) and
white peaches and pears from the Venice area, to name just a few.
The Veneto’s quality agroindustrial products are obtained by following precise rules but, above all, through extreme dedication and care for the land: regulations are only arid points of reference if there is no passion for creating the very best. The Veneto region offers an integrated, continually controlled and monitored system
whose aim is to ensure consumers and purchasers have the maximum traceability, reliability, safety, quality and taste in its products.
