Welcome to our Venetian Culinary Academy!

Colorful online classes teach you how to make simple and sophisticated Venetian dishes. Because food is natural medicine, even more essential in our challenging times.

Adventures ahead: Explore Venice virtually and unlock our culinary secrets

In addition to enjoying virtual tours taking you around Venice, you will learn the art of cooking with herbs and spices. Like we have done in Venice for 1,600 years.

The art of using local and exotic herbs, blossoms and spices to create beauty products, natural remedies and delicious food was developed in Venice during the past 1600 years of her existence.

This enormous health and culinary potential is only waiting to be unlocked and introduced to a broader public. After all, spices have always been the foundation of Venetian success, enabling Venice to shape European cuisine and health trends for centuries. 

During these challenging times ahead, La Venessiana would like to build a permanent bridge between Venice and the world. We would like to support you in connecting with Venice and the Venetians, and at the same time, uncover culinary secrets never mentioned in guide or cookbooks before. It's a promise!

La Venessiana has created exceptional Venetian experiences. Her new VENETIA Heritage and Culinary Online Classes are filled with intimate knowledge about the culinary culture, language & identity of Venice. It is a brilliant solution that is both sustainable and life enriching.

Signing up is easy: Get started with your class immediately after completing 2 steps:

For me, La Venessiana has always stood out from other websites because of its very personal insights and real beauty – it is so beautiful! - reflecting the personality of your incomparable city. It is filled with information I never knew, and is a joy for me.
