Italian Cooking Classes in Venice
Your food and wine experience at a Venetian lady’s home.
Do you want to learn the basics of Italian cuisine? I organize Italian cooking classes in Venice for anyone interested in Italian food and wine, all of which in English. I focus on and teach how to cook dishes you can prepare every day at home so that, by the end of the course, you will be able to cook pasta, lasagne, gnocchi, risotto, tiramisù.
SOMETHING ABOUT ME, MY PASSION FOR
COOKING AND WINE
I’m happy to welcome you to my home in Venice.
My name is Gioia, I have lived in Venice since I was born. I belong to a Venetian family. Cooking is my passion and I learned how to cook, observing my mother (a housewife) and my grandmother cooking and now I’m using all their secrets. Cooking for me also means enjoying food with the people I love, so I often have guests at home and good wine is never missing.
A HOLIDAY IN VENICE TO DISCOVER FLAVOURS AND TRADITIONS
Cooking classes Venice
I personally take care of every aspect of what concerns the organisation of my courses. My Cooking Classes in Venice will give you an insight into what the Italian lifestyle is all about: good food, family orientated, the pleasure of sharing company, the love for beauty and quality. A travelling experience with Venetians, the opportunity to be in a typical Venetian home.
How does it work?
The method is really simple: I demonstrate how to make it and then we all practise in the kitchen. Learning how to cook is not difficult but just reading a recipe does not always guarantee first class results. Everything starts by tasting. One must have the chance to taste traditional Italian dishes, to acquire the flavour and see how they are produced.
Private lessons: 250 euros.
3 day courses: 650 euros.
7 day courses: 1.000 euros.
Each course will teach you the basics of Italian cuisine, they are suitable for everyone and no previous experience is required. The ingredients will be of daily use and available on the market in all the world.

WHERE? IN VENICE
Venice: the most beautiful city in the world
My cooking classes will be held in my home, a typical Venetian house which is mainly geared towards hospitality. During the summer, on my sunny terrace, I often have dinner parties. I enjoy opening the door of my home to travellers who love Venice and the Italian lifestyle. My home is in the historical centre in Venice, precisely in the area of Dorsoduro, just round the corner from campo San Barnaba.
