“Epicurean School”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful time at the Epicurean school with delightful head chef Daniele Turco. We visited the Rialto market and Daniele showed us how to choose the best seasonal vegetables, fruit and fish. We returned to the very fine Epicurean kitchen and we worked with Daniele preparing a four lunch, which included Mediterranean prawns on a bed of julienned vegetables with an amazing carrot sauce; porcini risotto; wild sea bass with a clam broth and radicchio; and the ultimate in tiramisu. Then we had the pleasure of eating and enjoying the delicious food. A wonderful, very informative and highly worthwhile experience.

“5 Stars +!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

This was truly a delightful, gourmet epicurean experience. We felt like Chef Daniele's personal guests. Everything was perfect - the lesson was amazing and we feel confident to reproduce it when we get home. Mohammed, his assistant, was a joy as well. Afterward we ate what we had prepared and we both agreed it was one of the best meals of our lives. Before we left, the hotel's general manager greeted us and took us for a short but wonderful tour of the Gritti Palace. What a fabulous day! Venice, Chef Daniele, you'll always be in our hearts.
