Xemei. Cocina venexiana en Barcelona
Carlo Goldoni, in his comedy I due Gemelli Veneziani (1750), already used the term to refer to biological twins. In fact, it is written zemei, but xemei has the most poetic oral license. This is how the brothers Max and Stefano Colombo are known and this is also the name of their Poble Sec restaurant: Xemei. This book is the incredible story of how these two characters, bringing sympathy and friendship, emigrated from Venice to Barcelona and have become with their restaurant (at this point there already are three locations in Barcelona) one of the phenomena of competitive restauration of the city of Barcelona, with international echoes.
This is the story of a pair of twins, Max (architect, hardened in the fish market of Rialto) and Stefano (designer, a regular backstage at concerts) and his overwhelming lifestyle, with step-by-step recipes and photographs without tricks, including Max's secrets for the day's purchase. This book also offers a selection of wines from its many wine loving friends and shows the cocktail liturgy with classic and original combinations. As an extra, an album for those traveling to Venice, with these two twins’ favorite restaurants and spots.
