    My daughter’s and I took a cooking class with Barbara in October 2023. It was a wonderful experience. We made pasta and tiramisu that was absolutely delicious. Barbara is a master in the kitchen. She was friendly, hospitable and humorous. I would definitely recommend this class

    We are newly weds who came to Italy on our honeymoon & booked a last minute class the last night of our trip … what an ending !!! Not only did Barbara teach with such patience & expertise, she was also just a one of a kind human being ! From the very beginning she made each moment so special and this will for sure be a memory that my husband and I will carry through out our lives. We left having learnt how to make some yummy pasta but we also left with a new friend, Barbara ! We cannot thank you enough for EVERYTHING!!!

    Fabulous morning spent with Barbara, who welcomed us into her home and engaged us all. A great teacher and chef, we made a delicious meal, learning about Italian cuisine. We all agreed this experience was the highlight of our visit to Venice. Thank you Barbara.

    A very very nice morning. I was the only one that day that showed up so that was fantastic. Only thing missing - getting the recipe for pasta, stuffing, sauce and tiramisu on paper/writing.

    My mother and I had a wonderful experience with Barbara. She warmly invited us into her home and taught us to make 3 types of pasta from scratch. She was a wonderful teacher with easy to follow instructions and helpful demonstrations. The overall meal was delicious and showed that Barbara is truly a great chef. To top it off, at the end of the experience she personally directed us to a great local store for further shopping.

    Cesarina from 2018Location: Venice    Languages: Spanish, Italian, English
    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. At her dinner table, 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, where you will enjoy a timeless selection of traditional dishes. Only a magical city like Venice can promise such a special experience.
