Cooking lesson: learn how to cook Italian recipes with a local Cesarina

Your menu

    In Venetian gastronomic culture, fish is declined in various recipes that are often prepared on feast days, especially on religious holidays. In this meeting we will look together at some special and impressive preparations, with flavors linked to tradition but also newly conceived in presentation and combinations.

    You will immerse yourself in an experience for your senses, preparing and cooking together with me the most mouth-watering of seafood menus, consisting of several appetizers and two first courses, and you will not miss the traditional spritz and an excellent accompanying wine, ending with a persuasive spoon dessert. Are you ready for a unique event? You will not regret it and you will not easily forget these recipes. I look forward to seeing you in my cozy kitchen!

    5 stars does not do justice for Matilde. We had a group of 5 couples, and the experience was fantastic. We felt like Matilde invited us into her home. On top of that, the knowledge that she imparted to us was amazing. This included cuisine, culture, and personal and Venetian history. It was fantastic watching how she prepared the food and allowed us to “help” as well. Now to the best part - the food. It was phenomenal and so much of it. All 10 of us highly recommend any experience involving Matilde!

    If I could give Matilde 10 stars, I would! Matilde is amazingly funny, talented and educated. This experience was the one we looked forward to and it was even better than we expected. Not only did we have fun, but we learned so much. And the food!! The food was amazing. So fresh and clearly prepared with love and passion. Please, please, please…book with Matilde in her beautiful home with her beautiful family. Matilde’s soul is as gorgeous as her food. I promise!

    We had Mathilde's cooking class in Venice and it was very good! We prepared a teramisu, tagliatelle and ravioli. In addition, Mathilde had prepared various appetizerd for us which actually would have been enough as a meal. Everything was really delicious! We were able to learn a lot about the Italian cuisine and will certainly try some of it at home. Mathilde was very nice and had two lovely dogs. Thank you for this highlight of our trip!
