Three Cooking Lessons

Immerse yourself into the culture and lifestyle of Veneto and learn to cook authentic Italian dishes in an informal and friendly environment.

Classes are small enough to accommodate cooks of all levels and are ideal for small groups of family and friends.

It is also possible to bring along a non-participating partner who can spend the day enjoying the surroundings, sightseeing or swimming in our biological swimming pool (from May to September), and then join the group at dinnertime.
