Shared Experience
Your experience

    Immerse yourself in Venetian cuisine by participating in an exciting cooking class, where I will teach you how to prepare recipes using the freshest fish purchased at the famous Rialto market. The fish market is the beating heart of the city, and fish recipes are the foundation of Venetian cuisine. During this experience, we will prepare delicious and traditional dishes using high-quality ingredients under my expert guidance as a true Venetian. You will have the opportunity to learn how to cook the famous Venetian fish cicchetti, risotto with the catch of the day, stuffed cuttlefish, polenta with baccalà, and many other typical specialties of Venice.

    Joining the Tiramisu and Pasta cooking class in Venice was a delightful experience. Thanks to Barbara, we learned the secrets of fresh home-made pasta and tiramisu! We explored the essence of Italian cuisine in a beautiful, traditional Venetian home. Barbara, our gracious host, made the experience even more memorable with her warmth and expertise. It felt like visiting a friend’s house!

    My husband and I had a great time making / eating our pasta and tiramisu ! I never knew making pasta was so easy. I would definitely do this again.

    Our cooking class with Barbara was the highlight of our time in Venice! It was wonderful! She took us to the market for ingredients, then we stopped for a quick drink before she welcomed us into her home. Her home is lovely! It's a very warm, cozy and inviting space. Barbara gave us a choice in what we cooked. She showed us how to make tortellini by hand. We also made ricotta gnocchi and tiramisu. Then after we prepped all the food, she had set a lovely table and proceeded to serve us a beautiful meal. I would definitely take another class with Barbara again! Highly recommend.

    Cesarina Barbara welcomes you into her home with open arms. This breathtaking house is situated in the perfect location, right in the city centre, but sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the tourist hotspots. You will be guided through the most evocative culinary traditions of the lagoon. “Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved learning how to cook. I learned from my grandmother, who prepared traditional Venetian dishes with infinite wisdom: in fact, my grandparents ran a restaurant for many years, so I have always lived and breathed for making guests feel welcome. I love cooking for my friends and family, and over the years I’ve specialised in Venetian dishes, as they are so varied and full of flavour, a true expression of Venice’s precious and rich history.”
     Immerse yourself in the captivating atmosphere of the most famous canals in the world, you will have the the opportunity to learn a timeless selection of traditional dishes. Only a magical city like Venice can promise such a special experience.
