The famous gourmet Italian dish carpaccio was invented for the permanent visitors of the legendary Harry's Bar.
How to try carpaccio at Harry's Bar in Venice
The famous dish carpaccio was invented in 1950 by a chef of Harry's Bar for the permanent visitor of this place, Countess Anna Nani Mocenigo. At that time it was forbidden for her to eat fried or boiled meat, and the countess was very saddened by this fact. The chef decided to help her - he quickly sliced raw beef into thin slices and filled it with sauce with horseradish, milk, mayonnaise and lemon juice.

Since that time carpaccio is the most popular dish at Harry's Bar, the sauce of it is contained in a secret, because only this sauce turns raw beef meat in a delicatessen
