Overview
More
For more than 10 years, for lovers of Italian food, we have been offering a unique opportunity to participate in small groups in a hands-on cooking experience in the peace of an historic Venetian Villa of the 15th century. Meeting point is in Venice: Piazzale Roma, Tronchetto Parking or at the airport. The local women of Veneto will share Countess Maria's cooking philosopy, her traditional techniques, special ingredients, and family recipes. And you'll enjoy your creation "a tavola" for lunch, together with the best Italian wines of the region. We use fresh products like the vegetables of our garden, the eggs of our chicken for making pasta, and the best products of the day that we find on the local market. Programs are offered from March to December. Our daily classes begin at 10:30 and end at around 14:30, including lunch with d.o.c. Italian wines. In the afternoon, you can enjoy food and wine traditions of Veneto taking part in our optional excursions and wine & food tasting tours. Our programs are flexible. We can customize them according to your wishes and the activities you prefer. Send us an enquiry to get your program and rates.
