Lorenzo was a fantastic host and helped us to cook an authentic and tasty Venetian dinner. We particularly enjoyed making a riddicio risotto and our own tortellini. It was a wonderful evening talking about life in Venice and we would heartily recommend this for couples or small groups.

MUST DO when visiting Venice! Chef Lorenzo was very welcoming and he really immersed our group into the Italian culture. We had a small group of 4 people which was perfect! Lorenzo also planned a great meal which included homemade tortellini, a great appetizer and homemade tiramisu. Thanks Lorenzo!

The tour description means “home cooking” literally. This was a once in a life time experience to be welcomed into a chef’s home and cook together. Chef Lorenzo was an amazing teacher. The clasis is completely hands on. I am a good cook, but still learned a lot!! My teenager loved it too. YUM!!

Lorenzo really welcomed us into his home and was really great in teaching us how to make ravioli, risotto and burano biscuits which we then thoroughly enjoyed eating! It was a terrific and special experience which was very much due to Lorenzo's passion for cooking, great conversation and such a lovely manner. Grazie mille, Lorenzo!

He opened up his home for us. We shopped for the food then helped cook. It was amazing and so delicious! I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

What an amazing experience! Chef Michela is a professional cook that invited us to her charming apartment in the heart of Venice. She prepared an incredible four course dinner and made a delicious cake for my boyfriend's birthday. It was great to see how locals live, get some cooking tips and try some local delicacies. Michela and her son were a very pleasant company, warm and gracious hosts. This was easily the best dinner that we have had in Venice, highly recommended to everyone!

Thank you very much :

Great experience! A diferent way of knowing the city, inside a home by the channels, cooking their way and talking about real people living in this lovely city.
Michela is very good hostess, kind and friendly from minute 1. More than a teacher-student relationship, ti is like a firedns meeting, you help her preparing th dishes while you learn how to cook them and some logal tricks.
The results was a very nice dinner huge amount and a momorable experience.

We had a great time cooking with Mercedes. It was so wonderful to spend time in a local families home and experience a less touristy area of Venice. The hosts were all very kind and it was a pleasure!!
