What you'll do
getting hands-on experience with my special tips, you will sip prosecco, a local sparkling wine, and nibble on a cicheti, traditional Venetian finger foods! The recipes that we will prepare include fresh handmade pastas, prepared in a traditional Italian method with locally sourced ingredients (with seasonal vegetables, meat or both!), delicate Italian cookies and a decadent Venetian creamy dessert. When the dishes are ready, we will end our lesson in an enjoyable way at the table with regional Italian wines paired to the menu. The hands-on lesson and three-course meal also include Italian coffee, and a printed copy of the recipes in English, for you to recreate the dishes at home for your friends! You will learn how to prepare traditional Venetian dishes using ingredients come from the traditional city markets or from the islands of the Venetian lagoon!
