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.

★★★★★  The Best  Gioia’s cooking class was AMAZING! Definitely worth the time. She started off giving us some history about Italy, and then we starting cooking. She showed us each step, then let us practice. Recommend 100% if you want to know how to make good Italian dishes! Read more…

★★★★★  The most memorable part of an incredibly trip to Italy  What an extraordinary experience! My 13-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter and I learned so much about cooking but also about Venice and Italian life in general from Gioia. She is quintessentially Venetian…we were calmer and more in the moment with her than we’ve been on the trip thus far. What a life lesson. Read more

★★★★★  It was a wonderful experience – a real hightlight  Such fun and so informative! It’s a hands-on class, so you really learn what you are doing and will be confident to recreate the dishes at home. She also taught us about Venetian customs and traditions. Thanks, Gioia! Read more

★★★★★  Ann GMy husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class with Gioia. Gioia is friendly and engaging, and we enjoyed our conversation. We also loved making and eating wonderful food with her.  The class itself was very hands on and very educational. This was the best thing we did during our 4 day stay in Venice and we can’t wait to make the dishes we learned at home for our friends and family. Read more

★★★★★  Marina F.  Do not miss the opportunity to spend time with Gioia shopping at the Rialto Market and then cooking in her kitchen. She brings Venetian history, culture and cooking to life. This is not just a technical cooking class but a true organic farm-to-table experience. Read more

★★★★★   Keisha Ross  My husband and I went on our honeymoon for a cooking class with Gioia and it was an absolutely phenomenal time. She was very friendly and personable, with an absolute wealth of knowledge on authentic Italian cuisine. We made ravioli, tagliatelle, and tiramisu for an absolutely beautiful lunch paired with Prosecco! I fully recommend this class! Read more

COOKING&TRAVELLING

Sustainable tourism in Venice for responsible travellers

Welcome to my website. Proud to say I set up it all by myself.  I organize Food&Wine Experiences for those interested in travelling around Italy and who wish to participate in sustainable tourism in Venice. A trip to discover flavours and traditions. I use cooking as a means to help and understand what the Italian lifestyle is all about: good food, family orientated, the pleasure of sharing company, the love for beauty and quality.
