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.

Absolutely amazing, one of the best unique experiences to do in Venice! Circumstances meant we ended up having a private lesson which made the cooking even more memorable. The food was absolutely incredible and we were taught so much! And the terrace is absolutely gorgeous. Could not recommend it higher to anyone who’s visiting Venice. Carolyn even gave us a copy of the recipes along with recommendations for where to visit for the rest of the trip. Also incredible value for money! If you’re considering booking, make sure you go ahead and book it because Carolyn is an amazing and it’s all in all a fantastic experience!

Chef is a smoker. Smoking when we met her then several smoke breaks during which kept the odor present. Off putting to me. I'm sure with the menu time is of the essence, but felt pretty rigid and not very friendly. Lots of rules and not very engaging or overly personable. Food was great. Maybe she could cut back on the menu in order to create a more relaxed and friendly atmosphere?

We really enjoyed the cooking class, we learned a lot and it was a lot of fun. It is something special to be personally taken into your own home by a professional chef. It is really highly recommended. Eating on the roof terrace in glorious sunshine was beautiful. This cooking class was the highlight of our holiday thank you Carolyn.
