If you’re lucky enough to get to Venice, Italy, then I hope you love seafood. Much of the food in Venice revolves around fish and shellfish, with the bounty of the surrounding seas providing sustenance to the Venetians for centuries. Every morning the fish market in Venice is overflowing with a dazzling array of fresh caught seafood, from huge swordfish to giant shrimp and cuttlefish. The best picks are soon gone, so wise housewives and restaurant shoppers know to go as early as possible.

The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
