This was an exceptional experience. Lorenzo took us first on a tour of the Rialto Market where he sells seafood and vegetables for our creative cooking. Then we walked to Lorenzo’s apartment, where he made as welcome, and showed us how to cook tagliatelle pasta two shrimp dishes and two kinds of baked salmon. Let’s not forget Tiramisu for dessert!
Lorenzo was great and very knowledgeable! It was a hilight of my trip with my mother. Highly recommend!
Lorenzo met us at Rialto Market. As we walked through the market, Lorenzo shared great information about where the different types of fish, meats and produce came from. He asked our likes/dislikes as he shopped for the ingredients for the meal we were going to prepared. He adjusted the menu using the information he gathered from us and the availability of ingredients. We then walked through Venice to Lorenzo’s flat where we enjoyed wine from a local winery as we prepared fresh pastas with Bolognese we all helped make, fresh fish, tiramisu and homemade sorbet made from fresh peaches from the market. We then sat down to enjoy a wonderful meal we all helped to create. Lorenzo was a gracious host and shared a wealth of knowledge. We highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to submerse themselves in the culture and cuisine of Venezia!!
The Chef is lovely. This was an awesome experience. The class was well worth it and I would recommend to anyone wanting to do something fun and delicious.
We had a fantastic cooking session with Lorenzo, who had a varied and delicious menu for us. It was definitely plentiful. We made focaccia from scratch, as well as spinach and ricotta ravioli. We also had a captées salad, asparagus, carpaccio, artichokes… and it was topped off with a tiramisu. Most items where purchased fresh from Rialto that morning. Please note there is no market on a Sunday and the fish market is closed on a Monday so this will affect your menu. I thought maybe for the ricotta and mozzarella it could have been bought fresh from the market shops and not a supermarket. It was brilliant to learn how to make simple food which tasted so nice. My only comment would be there was not really a wine tasting, but wine to drink. I thought this was slightly misleading but probably a language translation issue. For the price being more than others I was expecting it… however, we had a great time and I would not only recommend but I would also do it again. Many thanks to the Chef and our fun group!
Lorenzo was wonderful ,patient with the children in our group and with questions from us adults,a gracious host and we really got a chance to get to know new people while laughing and enjoying a new skill
We had a great day with Lorenzo, our favorite Venice experience! Easy to connect at meeting point, informative tour of fish market and fresh produce market. 25 minute walk to his kitchen, where our family of 5 and another couple prepared a feast with his instruction. Fococcia, fresh fish, spinach and ricotta ravioli with fresh pasta, stuffed peppers, capreses, tiramasu. Very comfortable and casual, ple ty of wine and soft drinks, everyone had a hand in cooking. Lorenzo was sensitive to our nut allergy and provided alternative for one with fish sensitivity. Fantastic experience not to miss!
We had such a fantastic time with our family, new friends and our chef Lorenzo. The market became easier to shop and his patience, skills and affability made for a great time by all! My family of late teens and early twenties approached the experience with a little trepidation but were soon enjoying the company of wonderful new friends and the easy atmosphere of the cooking studio!
We had a superb time !! Looking around the markets at the gorgeous vegetables and fabulous variety of seafood. We then prepared THE most delicious food we have so far tasted in Venice. Enjoyed local wines that complemented our culinary delights! Antipasti: deep fried Cheese balls . So simple to make but so delicious! Mixed salad with simple dressing. Pea Risotto, sea Bream cooked in a paper envelope with Asparagus, lemon, olives, garlic, olive oil. ( other thing’s available) and our desert was Strawberry’s and a mascarpone mixture. Gorgeous!! If you want to maki it… sign up !!
We had a wonderful time with Fabio. The cooking class and tour were great. He was patient and informative. The meal we made together was really good. We loved it that everyone got to participate. Our only complaint was that there was a lot of walking and there was no mention of that in the event description.
