“Arianna & Monica only use seasonal products and are proud to teach traditional Venetian cooking, a mix of recipes with influences from all over Italy and the Middle East. Venetian recipes aren’t strictly original, since Venice has been for more than a 1000 years the centre of the world for commercial, military and religious traffic. It had a ruling class who was not extremely cultured but definetely rich and business minded, experienced both in the commerce and the expansionism.
At the beginning the population learnt to live with the few resources the lagoon offered (fish, vegetables) but as Venice’s population grew, the people started to turn their attention to the imports and to adapt the good and best products from all those places which it was reaching into its cooking.

So now Venice has a transformed and adapted cooking history, a cooking history which is various, fantastic and with an important influence from the Mediterranean, the Middle East and even from China and the Americas. Let’s not forget the incredible use of Polenta (maize flour mixed with water and salt) and rice which all Venetian mamas do in their everyday cooking. So, come and join Arianna and Monica’s cooking classes in Venice-Italy and learn to cook just like an Italian Mama. Come and take your Italian culinary art classes now!”
