In the Po Delta Park, in Veneto, there are some characteristic foods that make up our traditions: seafood products such as eels, clams, mussels, shrimps, sea bream and sea bass, and land products such as rice, radicchio and asparagus, pumpkin and mushrooms! Right near us in particular are: the radicchio of Chioggia, the honey of Ca' Cappellino, the rice of the Delta and the bread festival in Loreo.

It is mainly eaten raw, alone or in mixed salads, but thanks to its characteristic bitterish taste, it is suitable for the preparation of different dishes such as typical Venetian risotto, "lasagne pasticciate", rolls with bacon and grilled side dishes.
