Jamie Does... Venice

9:00pm Wednesday, May 5 on C4

Jamie’s in Venice, getting away from the tourist traps to experience the delicious authentic tastes the real Venice has to offer. Jamie tries his hand at fishing and cooks up spaghetti vongole for the most demanding critics possible: local fishermen. He learns the secret of how to make the best risotto in the world from ‘risotto king’, Ruggero Bovo; samples prosecco; and makes a classic bellini with beef carpaccio. Jamie also cooks minestrone with vegetables; and his old friend Gennaro Contaldo joins him to prepare a perfect Venetian tiramisu.
