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.


€ 145,00 per person.

This program is open to up to 12 attendees; ask the staff for larger groups.
