La mia Venezia…
“Perchè il sogno più vero è quello più distante dalla realtà, quello che vola via senza bisogno di vele né di vento…”
Why did I choose Lido di Venezia?
Lido di Venezia, just four stops from San Marco is where the Venice film Festival takes place, where you can meet the real locals of Venice…. Where life is just a little bit more relaxed.
It is here where we have opened our doors for another culinary school in Italy.
It is here where you see people holding hands feeling free to be casually romantic.
At night the allure of Venice is unbeatable and suddenly you will see Venetians having an “ombra”, a dialect word for glass of wine. The tourists which arrive in buses suddenly disappear. The atmosphere changes. The streets are half empty, the darkness wraps the city in beauty as the street lights guide you to a viale or calle…to a ponte…until you have found your final destination.
Of course you will get lost… But that is the magic. To find yourself. So let me take you there. Let me show you the way home.
The school in Venezia…
The Venice Cooking School will take you to the heart of Venezia, as well to the Veneto region giving you an authentic experience.
It will be taking you to the markets of Rialto and optional tours to Venice and Verona.
Depending on the season we will be enjoying a variety of Venetian dishes from Risotto, Bigoli (typical pasta from Venice), milky polenta, Zuppa di Pesce ( perfectly done as only the Venetians can do), fresh bread or fresh pasta…. or off course we can design a class to suit your needs. Plenty of fish and seafood straight from the markets, radicchio and a variety of spices taking you to the real Venezia. After all the Venetians were known since the ninth century as “spice dealers”, with access to the east markets. As spices became a commodity, so the flavours were introduced in our cooking. Spices like cloves, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, saffron, nutmeg became part of our lives.
