Those who come to Venice cannot fail to know the tradition of stopping at a "bàcaro" to drink an "ombra" of wine, or a spritz, and enjoy a plate of mixed "cicchetti".

We Venetians know well how difficult it is not to fall into this temptation, where one "cicchetto" leads to another.... With me you can prepare and taste traditional fish cicchetti on crispy bread croutons: the Saòr (various fish and vegetables), the Baccalà Mantecato, the octopus stew. You cannot miss the various preparations of Spritz, or a glass of good wine. Prawns alla "Bùsara," a typical preparation of our areas, can be enjoyed with bruschetta bread, or spaghetti, as you like. We will conclude with the ever-present Tiramisu!

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!
