Hotel Torino Carnival pancakes: Jesolo Hotel offering full board

We are in carnival flavor and for us of Hotel Torino, offering full board in Jesolo, it is essential to share some of the recipes of carnival sweets, according to the advice of our Chef Gigi.
The Veneto, and more than all  Venice, are the Carnival homelands, and,therefore, they are  one of the Lands which bake more Carnival cakes than any other Country , as in the break between one mask and the other,between a carnival float  and the other, it is perfect to stop at a bakery for a hot tea, mulled wine and a  carnival pancake.
We want to honor the classic Venetian pancake,called in Italian frittella,  because today  the pancakes are also and above all filled up with cream, chocolate, zabaglione, but the origin is the Venetian pancake, the one with raisins and often with pine nuts. ‘Ea friotoea’,it is the way it is called in Venice, and it is  the undisputed Carnival sweet and the most important sweet during the Serenissima Republicwhen it was cooked by the  ‘fritoleri’ in wooden stalls, and the ‘fritoleri’ who were specialized in cooking frittelle were so loved and important to arrive joining in  a corporation or association.
The frittelle origins date back even to the fourteenth century, although there is  also a Renaissance recipe. Think that the most serious and weel known bakeries and pastries  in Venice, but also in Jesolo or in the mainland in general, prepare the frittelle only and exclusivelyin  Carnival!We asked our Chef his recipe and, although the hotel is closed, we asked him to cook some frittelle for us . Here is his recipe:
Ingredients to get about 25 large pancakes

1 whole egg ( not cold)
160 grams of raisins and pine nuts
 50 grams of sugar
40 grams of butter outside temperature, and soft
17 Grams of yeast
 The peel of a lemon
 If you want to add to the mix a dash of brandy or rum to give that extra flavor,no problem, dare ! 


Warm  the yeast in a few tablespoons of warm milk and pour in the remaining milk,prepare the butter in pieces.
Mix flour, eggs and grated lemon peel and create a pyramid with a central hole where you are going to pour the yeast, the milk, the egg and the chopped butter, brandy or rum if you want, and knead until dough is smooth, according to our Chef the dough should be a little bit sticky.
Unite raisins and pine nuts and knead again for a little bit down to give uniformity to the whole.
Pour into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and put it in the  turned off oven for an hour even with poor light on to create a kind some warmth
And now it’s time to fry:We at the hotel we use pallottolliere ice cream to create precise size balls, but nothing prohibits you to use your hands, pour in the oil to 160 170 degrees and fry them so they are quite dark and beautiful round
Once fried, place them on paper towels and let them roll on the joyous granulated sugar.Some use the powdered sugar, but we like the oldest recipe that requires the caster sugar

A sweet, a tradition, a long history of ‘fritoleri’ who with their white apron and riddled jar to throw sugar on pancakes, takes us back in time, in the Serenissima which, together with persiung power and money, did its best to seek pleasure  and what more pleasant than one  ‘fritoea’? Only two ‘fritoe’!

Vivien from the Stage to being a waitress in a 3 star Hotel in Jesolo

And now it is high time for Vivien to write about her job experience at Hotel Torino. She arrived two years ago to attend a stage from ‘Professional Institute Barbarigo in Venice, and even to Vivien, the same as Martha, I have asked to write something about her experience at Hotel Torino. From the stage, as Vivien is a really professional waitress, we have asked her to be part of our Staff.Vivien writes:     ” Well what about my experience at Hotel Torino? I really do not know where to start. It is a place that gets into your heart if you’re on vacation so imagine if you spend there a whole Summer season, even though working. Facing a whole Summer Season is not easy: the rhythms are fast and even if you like the work ,there are days when you feel you cannot face it . It is not easy to find a balance with the colleagues with whom you live, eat, work, go out also to have fun. It ‘a little bit like living together, there are negative days, days considered ‘down’ however balanced by good times and hilarious. You miss your home, because, by sure, you do not get the bus to go home and come back to work every day, but this long staying away from home, living with ‘colleagues often unknown’ is not easy for anyone.I happened to wake up in a bad mood (and who does not happen?), But then, working, starting the day with a coffee with the Hotel Chef, with His Assistant and with Giovanna, the day immediately changed into a better mood. . And then, during the day, I do not deny that many customers made me smile. In fact, at Hotel Torino I have learned that the customer becomes something more than a Customer, i do not dare to say that the Custome becomes a friend ( such an important word), but he does not remain a simple customer without a soul, without personality. Here I have learned that the Client is often a Client who, feeling at Home, comes back Season afetr Season, and is happy to find you, to have a chat with you, laugh, to tell you how his winter passed by.For me this was a new teaching, a lesson missing in every school. No doubt, at school I was taught to treat Clients politely , but the relationship i have established with many People , my and their happiness to see each other season after season, the happiness to see their grown up children who jump to the neck and hug you,, well, it is a special relationship , a special feeling you can learn only in a Hotel which becomes a Home ….I do not deny that I have also found colleagues who have taught me a lot and also have become friends, and these relationships are often kept alive during Winter Time-. A daily coexistence is not simple, if we should make us war, it would be a slaughter!     The seasonal experience at sea is different from a much more regular job in a city Hotel, the season is a gap, but then you have to consider that you are in Jesolo and there are also chances for evening entertainment, while , I have to admit that i have give up to sun tanning : I have shamelessly betrayed it with the afternoon naps. At the end of the season I found myself paying to get sun lamps! Shame!     Working in a 3 star hotel by the sea is a ‘very different experience from the 4 star hotel in town, here you become more practical, faster, you learn to create a relationship with the customer, perhaps more human, and above all it is a job that teaches you to grow on your working level, but also on your human level and it is a job that give you the chance to test yourself, your resistance, your patience and your capability to stay away from home. It is a test for your strength and and a test learning new techniques, even to manage groups that I had never served before.     I will never forget this experience, because it is not so hard to fall in love with Hotel Torino and Jesolo ”     Vivien     And I add my thanks to Vivien: thanks for bringing us your elegance, your professionalism, your punctuality and your friendship. I have also grown up with you!!!

Hotel Torino ideal for Ladies,Mothers with Kids, Singles and Grandmothers

Pink Hotels , hotels for ladies : a new brand appeared on the turistic market in the last years , hotels especially suited to women, And here we wondered if Hotel Torino would be suitable for women traveling alone. And we have not given a negative answer, I would say that we believe our hotel is a true beach house suitable to accommodate single women.
Avoiding the extremes of floors dedicated only to women and prohibited to men , as it seems a way to create ghettos and a clearly excessive extremism, we have wondered what features make Hotel Torino suitable to a woman traveling alone.
-First Of all of its central location and in this regard we invite you to read the page of our website that explains in detail our position: Be located on the pedestrian street, just 200 meters from Piazza Mazzini, the main shopping district and only 30 meters from the beach, makes the hotel ideal for women who have no need to walk through dark streets to reach the center . We are in the center, walk out of the hotel and you are in the city center. The central location makes the hotel a very safe hotel for women . This is not a secondary, the position becomes a very fundamental trait for Ladies’ tourism.
-The Parking granted as a free service to all (see the section of our site services ( is very appreciated among women, and, if there are difficulties, we take care to park the car . Thanks to its central location, the car can really be forgotten for the rest of the holiday. A plus that appeals to everyone, but we noticed that women, more than ever appreciate this convenience. In case of any movement in the nearby .there are also bicycles which are granted free of charge from the hotel. How many young ladies use the bicycles provided free of charge, even to move from one pub to another.
-Other Plus that makes the hotel suitable for single women is certainly the predominant presence of women at the hotel. We are a women’s hotel, carried out by women and we are here ready to chat, a word, a drink with you, a herbal infusion in the afternoon. We are proud to have clients who often stop to chat with us, girls traveling alone and who decide to return to the Hotel Torino, because they feel at home, because they know that , if they do not want, they are never alone here at the hotel. Getting a sun beach vacation alone , whether you are young or grandmother, or mature woman, is not easy and what often makes the difference is just the staff capacity to be near you, to be available whenever you want to exchange words. Talk to the reception, the evening just sit at the counter of the bar inside and our barmaids are ready to talk. We are truly a 90% female staff ready to chat and to exchange ideas, thoughts and strictly feminine reflections .
-Other Plus is the presence of a hairdryer in the rooms and, the mainly female staff, in case you should forget something, for sure will in extremis help you. Small kits with nail polish or other nonsense are useless to us , we believe in more substantial offerings. A welcome kit enriched of a glaze, in an era where gels and semi-permanent polish are prevailing, becomes quite insignificant. For women traveling alone and reserve their single room, Hotel Torino has come up with an offer much more interesting. A coupon of € 10.00 discount on a fold or more in the Beauty Salon Fiorella just 300 meters from the hotel. We guarantee the quality of this Beaty Salon where the staff and hotel management is a customer. To download the coupon just go to the hotel offer section and photograph with the smartphone the discount or print it. Remember that at the time of booking .This is the link to download the discount.
-Our All-female reception will give our female travelers detailed information on women’s shops, where to find certain items of clothing, about where to make the best shopping in Jesolo, or information about the hairdresser or beauty salons, even the gym.
-Our Menus, being very varied, always giving great choice and rich buffets of everything and more, certainly meets the requirements at the table of our women travelers. And, in the case of celiac disease or food intolerance, our Chef is always very attentive to cook separately according to the rules dictated by you. We followed customers in their diet on their vacationa, separately cooking without salt, lactose and more. The woman at the table is much more demanding and, let’s face it, complicated than man. And our women travelers, at Hotel Torino, have always found the highest availability.
-For Single women, who so desire, we have prepared a recipe book from the Veneto regional cuisine, with the real, genuine preparations, and if they wish, if they love the kitbean Soup, the bigoli in salsa, the Venetian pancakes, the damselfish, the ‘polenta and birds’ and many other delights of our cuisine with its roots in the most genuine rural tradition.
A little tip for women traveling alone: ​​bring so many books. We would like to suggest some special some reading, including a Hearts Cocktail ( ideal for the beach, under a parasol, relax.
