“Cooking Class in Venice”

Our family had a wonderful cooking lesson in Venice. We started the day with a walk through the fun market at Rialto where we learned about what was in season. Our teenage daughters really enjoyed the traghetto ride across the Grand Canal after the market. The class itself was informative and interesting for all of us. This was an ideal intro into local food and wine and we would certainly book this again the next time we are in Venice.
