What to Expect
If you want to live a real Italian experience and spend the day like the natives, why not experience a cooking lesson? Follow Mario, a certified Cheese Taster and Sommelier, through the characteristic outdoor fruit and vegetable market in Padua’s Piazza delle Erbe, choosing the seasonable produce that is the secret of Italian cuisine.
When you finish visiting the colorful market stands, your will next head toward the gourmet shops under the Palazzo della Ragione, where your senses are sure to be delighted by the offerings in this medieval building.
You'll join the locals in sipping on a glass of Prosecco in one of the oldest wine bars of the city, before heading to a private restaurant where your professional chef will introduce you to the wonderful, but simple, world of Italian cuisine.
Chef Alessandro will describe the day’s menu that you will prepare together. Your menu includes an appetizer, first course, second course, side dish and dessert, all paired with wine suggested by the sommelier. After your hard work in the kitchen, you will all sit down to enjoy your creations. Before saying goodbye, enjoy a traditional caffè mocha and a glass of a local after-dinner drink.
This lesson will be led in an relaxed and warm atmosphere where you can fully appreciate not only the recipes and culinary techniques, but also the true spirit of Italian Slow Food.
