Gastronomia Marcolin - Selvazzano Dentro (PD) - Veneto
Why we chose them
Gastronomy Marcolin Francesco from "Sotto il Salone" in Padua, the oldest covered market in Europe, is a landmark for codfish lovers in Veneto. The recipes were developed by his father, Francesco Marcolin, born in 1946, who started working at 15 years as a shop boy until 1985 when he managed to acquire the property of the shop where he worked, and give vent to his passion for gastronomy. Today it is the three children of Francesco (Chiara, Stefano and Andrea Marcolin) who carry on the family business. Chiara was the first one to follow Dad, first of all working for many years at the counter in the gastronomy, then taking charge of the administration. Stefano learned the craft by helping his dad in the processing of the stockfish; today he deals with the production, in addition to following the shop. Andrea instead follows the commercial development of the company. Three years ago Stefano had the intuition to develop a line of codfish intended for professionals: thus was born the brand Baccalà, which identifies the recipes of the Marcolin family.
