About
Enjoy a private market tour and Italian cooking class with Laura is a true-blue Venetian. She was born and raised in Venice and lives in a beautiful apartment in the city center (only a 20-minute walk from the city center). The neighborhood is very local with not many tourists so you will get to experience a real Italian suburb. Laura loves to travel, watch movies, go to the market and of course, cook! She learned to cook traditional dishes from her mother and she likes to serve local dishes from Veneto. She only uses fresh and organic ingredients from the local farmers. Laura is also an expert in vegetarian food, as she was a vegetarian for 10 years (but not anymore!).

Una festa con Laura
Oct. 2021
Ein wunderbarer sonniger Herbsttag in Venedig mit LAURA! Die lebensfrohe Venezianerin ging mit uns zum Gemüseschiff, zum Fisch- und zum Weinhändler. Wir lachten und verkosteten den frischen Torbolino und so manch anderen Rebensaft. Ich und meine drei Burschen (1 Sohn + 2 seiner Schulfreunde) tauchten unter die Haut von Venedig! Später in Lauras Home startete ein wahres Kochfest mit einem Supervisor (ich). Laura zeigte vor und meine Jungs taten behände bis ein köstliches Zitronen-Shrimps-Risotto und ein himmlisches Tiramisu auf dem Tisch standen. Dazu gab es Prosecco und Pinot Grigio. What a day! Vielen, vielen Dank und ALLES LIEBE, Laura. Kurt und die 3 Jungs.
