Full description
The professional chef is Carolyn, an American married to a Venetian, who has lived in Italy for over 20 years, and has won numerous awards for her Venetian cooking. She will welcome you with a glass of prosecco to sip with "cicheti" (Venetian finger food). During the class, you will learn how to to make traditional Venetian dishes. You will learn how to create hand-made fresh pasta, following the traditional Italian style of pasta-making, filled with seasonal vegetables, meat, or both. You will also learn to make lovely, delicate Italian cookies, and a decadent Venetian creamy dessert. Your lesson ends enjoyably at the table (in the warm months it will be on the panoramic terrace, weather permitting). You will sit and taste your delicious creations, chatting over a nice glass of regional wine with Carolyn and any other lesson participants.

My friend and I had a fantastic experience learning the ins and outs of Venetian cuisine and trying our hand at making cicchetti, ravioli, tagliatelle, and Italian cookies with the group! Our instructor was well prepared, pleasant to learn from, and more than qualified to share her expertise in the kitchen (she’s won multiple local cooking competitions!). We highly recommend this opportunity to cook and eat delicious food in the heart of Venice!

Great cooking class in a private home! The advantage was that we were a small group of only 4 people and the friendly cook Carolyn was able to take enough time for each individual. We got great tips on pasta preparation and various attractions in Venice! Finally, we were allowed to enjoy the pasta we had prepared on Carolyn's terrace, including a great view over the roofs of Venice!

The class was extremely well-planned and included thoughtfull extra touches to make the experience truly enjoyable. It was hands-on enough to ensure that you feel confident recreating the recipes on your own, but also allowed plenty of breathing space to relax, observe and listen. I half wish I brought a note-book to capture all the extra tips, recipies and general know-how that was shared along the way. The atmosphere was of spending an afternoon eating, drinking and learning with friends - which is extra fun for a solo traveler. I highly recommened this class (and the food!!).
