HANDS ON COOKING LESSON

One Week Cooking Vacation

Veneto is known for its capital city, Venice, one of the most popular destinations in Italy. But just an hour or so to the west, at the foot of Euganean hills, lies the Venetian wine-growing area and your home for this unique countryside cooking vacation. The natural beauties of the land, its fertile fields and abundant harvests, and charming and unassuming people make your agrarian Veneto culinary holiday an exquisitely inviting and relaxing experience.

 

This is our best-selling class.  We peel, we bash, we chop, and we cook together. Ultimately, we sit down and enjoy the meal with a good bottle of wine. This program last six nights with 5-morning classes. Make sure to reserve this holiday weekly cooking class early. The classes are small enough to accommodate cooks of all levels and are ideal for small groups of family and friends. An excursion is set up with a visit to Chioggia's traditional and well-known fish market. On-demand, other optional tours are available in the afternoon every day.


The basic program includes the following:

6-night stay at the Villa, full board accommodation in double rooms with private bathroom.
Five hands-on cooking lessons with our chef Simone.
Visit Chioggia Fish Market to purchase some seafood to cook with chef Simone.
Excursion to Euganean Hills to visit a winery and taste Prosecco with other red wines.
