Take This Class!!!
Jocelyn_G, Nov 2022
We had the absolute best time with Carolyn. She was so knowledgeable not only about the food but Venice as well. Her class was great for both beginners and more advanced cooks as she had so many tips and tricks to share. The class takes place in her home and it completely made the class being in a real Venetian home, so different than other cooking classes. She made everyone feel comfortable and we all had so much fun! The food was absolutely amazing as well, I cannot believe how well it turned out! Would absolutely recommend this experience! Seriously the best thing we have done!

Best cooking class we've ever taken
Mihkel_J, Nov 2022
Great experience for foodies and those curious to learn more about Venice! Carolyn was hospitable, funny, and knowledgeable. She was also fluent in both English and Italian, which eliminated the bottleneck in information that sometimes happens when taking cooking classes with locals. A small group and great choice of foods had everyone hands-on throughout the experience. If we could give this more stars, we would. :)

Highlight of our Venetian Trip
Nancy_T, Sep 2022
This tour was the highlight of our trip to Venice. Chef Carolyn was friendly, very well prepared and so professional as she guided us through the pasta & dessert recipes in her Venetian home. I would highly recommend this tour.
Definitely do it!
Estefania_R, Aug 2022
It was a nice way to meet other people on the trip. It’s nice and intimate so it easy to learn the recipes and also you’re able to talk about different ones and ideas. I would definitely recommend this to anyone else! Loved it
This was a wonderful...
Bethanie_S, Jul 2022
This was a wonderful experience! The cooking process was fun and informative and we got to try everything and learned so much! This was one of the most delicious meals we had on the trip and it was exciting to know we made it. I would highly recommend this experience!!
Learn to cook from Venice local!
Sara_W, Jul 2022
Wonderful class! Extremely well organized and great instruction, Carolyn shares a lot of knowledge and skill throughout the class. Class began with making a dessert, Lingue di gatto with cream del doge. We made a three cheese ravioli with tomato sauce and a tagliatelle pesto, where were all awesome. The cichetti sampling was great and a treat to enjoy with Prosecco while waiting for the sauces to cook. Enjoying lunch on the rooftop terrace was the cherry on top! We can't wait to get back home and practice our new skills!
We loved getting to learn...

Best cooking class in Venice
Barbara_C, Jun 2022
We had such a wonderful time with Chef Caroline. My husband, son and his fiancé, plus myself were in the class. She welcomed us into her home where we made the best meal we had in Venice. This was one of our favorite activities that we did while we spent 3 weeks traveling through Europe. Highly recommend!

Amazing way to spend the day in Venice!
Annika_E, May 2022
I absolutely LOVED this class!! Carolyn was fantastic, so kind and welcoming to her home. Her home and balcony where we are we’re so beautiful. She also gave us recommendations for things to do in the city and even helped me figure out which shuttle to take to the airport. The food was delicious and I am so excited to try to make it at home! I am not a very good cook at all, but I actually think I could make these recipes on my own. I really learned a lot and enjoyed the entire experience! I wanted to upload photos but the website wouldn’t let me. The food and view were so beautiful, I wish I could share the pictures! But you’ll just have to experience it yourself. 😊

Frank_R, Apr 2022
Carolyn was great! Definitely a must book activity if you’re in Venice. I don’t do much cooking and she was extremely helpful during the entire process. I’d recommend doing it earlier in your trip since she gives great recommendations on what to see and do around Venice. The entire experience lasts four hours.

Fun cooking class
VARINDER_S, Feb 2022
Fun cooking class learning to make dessert cookies, ravioli and pasta. The chef was very friendly and helped teach a lot more than was expected. The class is more like 3.5hr-4hrs vs what Viator has listed. Just be aware.

One of the highlights of my trip to Italy!
Constanza_A, Feb 2022
I had so much fun! Carolyn is a wonderful host, a great teacher, and has some incredible tips in the kitchen and to survive in Venice. She is very generous with her knowledge, and that's always good when you are learning from someone. I highly recommend this experience. We baked, cooked, had a delicious break, and talked a lot. I was a solo traveler and went there in Covid low season, so I had a particular class, and it was amazing. I'm also a vegetarian, and Carolyn made sure to have vegetarian recipes, and I just loved everything! I'm so glad I booked this class!
