The recipes that we will prepare include fresh handmade pastas, prepared in a traditional Italian method with locally sourced ingredients (with seasonal vegetables, meat or both!), delicate Italian cookies and a decadent Venetian creamy dessert. When the dishes are ready, we will end our lesson in an enjoyable way at the table with regional Italian wines paired to the menu. The hands-on lesson and three-course meal also include Italian coffee, and a printed copy of the recipes in English, for you to recreate the dishes at home for your friends! You will learn how to prepare traditional Venetian dishes using ingredients come from the traditional city markets or from the islands of the Venetian lagoon!

The square of Campo Santa Margherita, in the center of historic Venice. When you arrive in Campo Santa Margherita, you will see a brown building in the middle of the square, next to which there is a monument with a red flag pole (rarely with a flag). Carolyn will meet you there, with a “Cooking Class” sign to take you up to her kitchen.
