'One day Venice Cooking Class - Venice'

We were hoping for a more hands on class. While cooking in the restaurant was different (and at times awkward, as we are experienced cooks, we were hoping for a more rustic/homemade Venetian cooking class.


Going to the market & selecting the menu


More preparation & hands-on We didn't fully prepare everything we ate

Dear Lisa Grady,

we are sorry that the tour did not meet your expectactions! The cooking class takes place in the kitchen of a typical Venetian osteria and offers the opportunity to learnt to cook some traditional Venetian recipes. The atmosphere is less formal and more relaxed than a restaurant and the whole experience aims to combine tradition, flavours and fun… We can assure you that this tour is usually appreciated by our customers, that are usually tourists looking for a not too challenging experience. Maybe, your expectations were too high, considering that you are both experienced cooks and this is not a professional cooking course.

Best regards,
The staff
