Italian Cooking Holidays in Venice
Venice, like all other regions in Italy, has its own food specialities. Cookery holidays to Venice and the Veneto region offer a wonderful opportunity to explore the culinary traditions of the region. Obviously, due to the proximity to the sea, there are a large selection of seafood dishes to choose from.
Not only is the lagoon known for its fresh seawater dishes, there are also an interesting number of inland fresh fish dishes. Preserving fish either by marinating them or keeping them in salt water was a very common technique that still continues to this day.
No Single Supplement
We never charge a single room supplement.
Small & Friendly Groups
Our group sizes are usually between 8 and 10 people.
Day in Venice was fabulous – trip back on the water taxi along the Grand Canal is a memory I will always treasure.
