A fun culinary experience in the center of Padova

euro 145/adult  

Discover an authentic Padova through its culinary traditions. This unique program combines a walk through the food markets, a hands-on cooking class set in a historic palazzo dating back to the 17th century, and lunch to taste what you have created in the kitchen. This is an ideal day trip by train from Venice.

Begin your day with your local food and wine expert as you stroll through the colorful market stands of the impressive Piazza delle Erbe. Learn about the fresh, seasonal produce that is fundamental to the local cuisine.
Next you will walk down the cobblestone streets of the medieval Jewish Ghetto to the palazzo where your cooking class takes place. Your interactive lesson, led by an engaging local chef, will have you prepare typical specialties such as homemade fresh pasta or risotto as part of a complete Italian meal. At the end of the lesson you will sit down to lunch all together to taste what you have prepared. Your meal will include several quality local wines, which will be presented as an introduction to the world of Italian wines. A fun and informative culinary experience for all skill levels.
