    We had an excellent experience with Catia. It was so fun cooking some ofher family recipes including starters, homemade pasta and Tiramisu. Catia is a very knowledgeable chef and we were so honored that she opened her home for us. We can highly recommend getting a memorable taste of Padova.
    Italian Cooking with Catia
    Stephen_M, Nov 2022
    Extraordinary day with on our small group tour and cooking class in Padua. Catia was an exceptional host, warm and welcoming, as she guided us through a wonderful day. Even before meeting up for our experience, she was in contact, giving us confidence about what to expect and reinforcing our meeting place and time. We started the day by learning the fine points of shopping in the busy marketplace, along with perspective on its history and place in Italian culture, as we gathered ingredients for our lesson and meal. There was also excellent explanation about the regional food differences in Italy. She then brought to her home and made us feel like family as she guided us through a fun and insightful afternoon celebrating food and its preparation. With some of the market purchases, she put together an amazing assortment of Venetian appetizers with her own special twist. It was a beautiful meal in itself. And that was before we even got down to the pasta and tiramisu preparation! Catia was an excellent teacher showing us some traditional ways of making fresh pasta and the tiramisu in tandem, offering valuable perspective to ensure success. Even with some cooking experience we learned a lot, tried some new things and had great fun working together. The results were magnificent, delicious and completely satisfying. The best part was that we did all of this in great company. This was an outstanding experience all around and highly recommended. Great memories created that we’ll likely think about whenever we’re shopping, cooking or enjoying food with friends and family.
    A must do in Padua!

    We walked through the Padua market, enjoying the many different stalls and shops. Then we made magic with semolina flour and water, bucoli! Fabulous day, great host.
