Hi Shar,

While Venice cooking classes probably exist, it not an area known for great food-and IMHO there are better things to do in Venice. Not sure what your itinerary is, but if you are going to be in Venice, you are only 1 1/2hr by train from Bologna, which is in a region renowned for it's food. Numerous boardies have attended cooking classes there, and you can learn more by searching that on this board. Either way, at least my response bumps your post!

I happen to like Venetian food quite a lot but I can't recommend a cooking school!

What a ridiculously ignorant comment.

"at least my response bumps your post!"

So now we should consider a bluster of ignorance helpful?

I once took a class with the late, fabulous Marcella Hazan in Venice. It's a memory I cherish and one that will last forever.

Venice has some incredibly talented cooks who offer amazing creativity and world class cucina. The Venetians do things with fish that other Italians envy and crave. You'll pay a fortune, but there are some fabulous cooks doing wonderful things with meat these days, an in-demand market in the new Venice.

Venice has a few star chefs who host private classes. Do a search on Google or write your query on a more appropriate "foodie" board. Too many here are as limited as the OP.

Google is your friend. Just type in Venice cooking schools, and you get many hits. Even reviews on Tripadvisor.

I know there are some fantastic and unique restaurants and chefs in Venice, and I thoroughly enjoyed the food. OP I apologize if my first sentence might have come off as flip and far reaching. That being said, I stand by my point, which is that in when I consider culinary experiences in Italy, Venice is not a destination that I personally would go to for a cooking class. That's primarily based on the expense, and the lack of appeal (for me) of the region's delicacies. However, I'm sure you'll make up your mind based on your interests.

Take deep breath Snob, and get over yourself a bit. I think that those who feel the need to push others down in order to elevate themselves say more about their insecurities than anything else.
