Hands-On Pasta Making Cooking Class
If you are spending your holiday in Venice or another city of art in the Veneto region, the best option is to choose a one-day cooking class, which always includes a meal with wine after the lesson.
You can discover step-by-step how to make a satisfying, typical Italian meal, including the art of making pasta Fresca. You'll learn to create pasta such as ravioli, tagliatelle, and gnocchi in this funny, hands-on adventure.
Recipes vary according to the season, utilizing only the freshest ingredients available and providing a profoundly individual Italian experience. The best part is the conclusion: indulging in the success of your creations.
