The whole experience was great. Marika is passionate, informative and understanding. She makes things fun and exciting and you happen to learn a ton along the way. We definitely want to make a return trip to soak up some more of her incredible knowledge and cooking skills.

We have cooked an amazing Spezzatino di Vitello from Venezian Menu, that we recommend. At home, we have already cooked the Spezzatino and the Tiramisu. The results: gorgeous and well... More

My partner, 12 year old son and I were lucky to get a place in one of Marika's amazing cooking classes. Truly it was our highlight of Venice. Marika managed to buy gorgeous seafood at a tricky time of year (between Christmas and New Year) and lead seven of us into creating a feast. Marika's instructions were clear and insightful... More
