What to Expect
Learn to cook like a Venetian in a typical palazzo of the Polo District in Venice, and get hands-on help preparing your own lunch or dinner from a friendly cook.
Enter the home of your cook and teacher, Mercedes, located on the banks of the Misericordia canal and close to the Jewish Ghetto in one of the most historical quarters of Venice. Along with her husband, who is originally from Puglia, she has prepared a refined menu of Venetian and Pugliese recipes, using fresh produce and raw materials from both areas. Discover what to do with fish and vegetables bought from the Rialto Market. Use olive oil produced in Puglia.
Prepare a typical 4-course meal (appetizer, pasta course, 2nd course, and dessert) of dishes such as mixed croutons, eggplant with mushrooms, home-jarred sott’olio (“in oil”) vegetables, pasta and beans Venetian style, Venetian style liver and onions, with artichoke hearts and other seasonal vegetables, and Venetian pastries.
