Join us in Nonna's kitchen and spice atelier, set in a hidden garden near Piazza San Marco: Discover the culinary culture and gardens of Venice, and learn to cook family menus and historical recipes. Explore historical recipes for food, natural remedies and perfumery. Virtually, and back in Venice (summer 2023). 

did you know that ..

.. for more than a thousand years, spices from all over the world passed through Venice? Our city was the premier hub for luxury goods in the Mediterranean Sea: Venetians created fabulous spice mixes and even cultivated them in surprisingly exotic gardens in the Lagoon (more than 500 botanical gardens!). 

This is the story of the little-known culinary heritage of Venice: Join us to discover Venice from the Venetian perspective!


La Venessiana Atelier was featured on:

THE STORY OF VENICE IS FASCINATING AND SO MUCH MORE COMPLEX THAN I HAD ONCE THOUGHT: IT'S LIKE LOOKING AT SOMEONE WITH NEW EYES. - Chris Bean

FOR ME, LA VENESSIANA HAS ALWAYS STOOD OUT 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. - Janet Rant

wondering where to start?


Start by subscribing to our newsletters - we're now on Substack! To learn more about Venetian cuisine and receive tips and access to a private community (hosted here on the website), we'd be very happy if you would take a look at the membership called LAGUNA IN CUCINA

From the Membership, 20 per cent of the annual revenue go to Venetian associations like DINGO - taking care of homeless cats in Venice and the Lagoon.
