As a local expert and enthusiastic cook, I'm thrilled to share with you my passion for Venetian cuisine and guide you through the preparation of classic home made pasta dishes and, of course, we'll end our experience with the delicious dessert that is tiramisu.

With each step of the cooking process, I'll share my family's recipes and the history behind Venetian cuisine, making sure you leave with a true taste of Venice. At the end, we'll sit down and savor the fruits of our labor, paired with a glass of local wine!

We had the best time with Giulia and Silvia. The experience we had cooking and laughing was the highlight of our entire Europe trip. It was very special to be envited into a local Venetian home. We can't wait to get home and cook pasta!

Giulia created a wonderful experience for our group. The recipes were easy to follow and I believe I will be able to reproduce at home. I love that she showed us how to make coffee in a Moka pot. Now I can bring this home as well. She was welcoming and accommodating. She followed up by sending us pictures of our class and recipes. I highly recommend Giulia and hope there will be an occasion to meet again.

Giulia is the best teacher!!! She is so nice and the experience is unforgettable. We took the cooking class with my mother (70) and daughter (10) and the three of us enjoyed it very much and learned a lot. Having the Opportunity of Meeting an Italian chef in her home and visit a local household is priceless Thanks J Giulia!

Cesarina from 2018Location: Venice    Languages: English and Italian

Venice is a unique place: floating on a lagoon with a network of thousands of canals. Rich in history and culinary tradition, it is a city of art, forged from different pasts and cultures, with profound ties to both the land and the sea. The ancient city is also home our Cesarina, Giulia. Her cooking reflects her regional and family traditions made even more unique by a modern twist with her passion and expertise in local and seasonal ingredients. Giulia: "For me cooking is not a journey through youth but rather onwards into maturity. My childhood was spent in my grandmothers’ kitchens with the aromas and flavours of two different Italian cultures; Born in Turin with mother from Mantua and a Venetian father, I grew up around my grandmother in Mantua, with the scent of pumpkin, rolling homemade pasta, and in Venice with the sharing culture of Cicchetti (aperitivo finger food). Polenta, however, was common to both regions although in Mantua it had a yellow tinge and stark white colour in Venice".
