Full description
Live an authentic culinary experience in Venice. Giudecca Island is one of the few places in Venice that still retains its authenticity of real Venetian life. Always full of orchards and gardens, the Giudecca was once a refuge for the Venetian nobility who moved there during the warmer months. It is there in the middle of green and flowers, where your host awaits you in her kitchen full of colors. Once there she will welcome you with a glass of Prosecco, and distribute the aprons to get to work preparing the pasta dough and transforming it under her attentive guidance into the different traditional forms of "pasta fresca". You will prepare the sauces to dress the pasta, and as a second course a pan of baked vegetables and fruit, her original signature. Finally, you will prepare the Tiramisu the Italian dessert king, according to the traditional recipe. After this hands-on cooking class, choose the chair of your favorite color and enjoy what you’ve prepared for dinner with local wines or water and finally a classic Italian coffee. Share your passion for the Italian cuisine with your friends once you are back home, with the recipes you have learn.

Really really lovely experience. Both hosts were incredibly welcoming, warm and friendly. They made learning to make easy and fun and the conversation was both interesting and enjoyable, never an awkward moment even though it was just myself. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants an authentic Italian experience.

We had the absolute best time with Monia. She was such a lovely person that radiated when she talked about food. Her love of cooking and cuisine was contagious despite the language barrier. I would highly recommend her class to anyone wanting to learn to make pasta and have an authentic Italian meal. Highly highly recommend.
