Monica has 20 years of experience in the catering trade, while Arianna is a huge fan of the traditional Venetian cuisine. Some of their recipes have been included in the book Venice: Recipes Lost & Found by Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi! Their cooking classes will prove to you that you do not need to be a chef to prepare delicious dishes, you just put a pinch of passion, a teaspoon of imagination and the desire to experiment!

Our cooking lesson at home wants to give you a starting point for the preparation of some simple dishes from the Veneto region and Italy, providing suggestions and ideas that will you will like to hear about for the preparation of various dishes!
