Welcome to my immersive cooking and market tour experience in the heart of Venice! Join me as we explore the bustling Rialto market, filled with the freshest ingredients, to gather everything we need for our traditional Venetian pasta and tiramisu making class.

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!

Perfect course with very sweet, happy, funny, dedicated and passionate teacher - Giulia! She became our friend, we’ve laughed and learned a lot of new things in cooking! Definitely going to try every recipe we’ve made! Grazie Mille!

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".
