What people are saying about Veneto

Delightful class to learn how to make gelato and other frozen desserts. We only had the opportunity to make 2, both were delicious. The best part is that Chef Cristina is very engaging and shares many, many suggestions, tips and secrets in addition to the cookbook. Highly recommended to take part in this class!!

I visited the studio with our son (9). The atmosphere there alone makes you feel creative. The instructions from Giorgio and his son were very good and adapted. It was a lot of fun for my son and the conversation with Giorgio was really great. We would love to come back!

It was very interesting to paint your own masks as a souvenir of your visit to Venice. We were able to learn the history of the mask and the culture. In the course we were just us (2 people), it was very pleasant.

Very good experience! Did it with our 3 and 4 yo, and we all enjoyed it very much. Our chef was really good and very patient.

I’d you really love gelato come hungry. You will learn how to make amazing natural gelato.
