IT’S ABOUT ITALIAN FOOD
Welcome to my website. Here I share my Italian home-cooking recipes, along with all my knowledge about food and local culinary traditions. Whether you are an absolute beginner or a curious food lover, here you can find educational resources, informative videos, and step-by-step recipes. I put all my effort and knowledge into helping people understand what Italian food is and how to become more confident in the kitchen. It’s not only a question of food, but also enjoying time in the kitchen or around a table with family and friends, as is the Italian lifestyle.
MY SIMPLE RULES
FOR THE KITCHEN
Learning to cook is not something that can happen overnight.
It’s a question of practice. It may take time, but it’s always worth it.
1 – Always choose seasonal, local food
2 – Good food isn’t necessarily expensive
3 – Eating healthy, tasty food is more beneficial than a diet
4 – Don’t limit your creativity
5 – Don’t waste food

MY PRIVATE EXPERIENCES IN MY CITY
What better way to learn about Venice and Italian food than to eat and drink in a typical Venetian home while your host recounts the history and curiosities of the city?

REVIEWS AROUND THE WEB
★★★★★ The Best Gioia’s cooking class was AMAZING! Definitely worth the time. She started off giving us some history about Italy, and then we starting cooking. She showed us each step, then let us practice. Recommend 100% if you want to know how to make good Italian dishes! Read more…
★★★★★ The most memorable part of an incredibly trip to Italy What an extraordinary experience! My 13-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter and I learned so much about cooking but also about Venice and Italian life in general from Gioia. She is quintessentially Venetian…we were calmer and more in the moment with her than we’ve been on the trip thus far. What a life lesson. Read more
★★★★★ It was a wonderful experience – a real hightlight Such fun and so informative! It’s a hands-on class, so you really learn what you are doing and will be confident to recreate the dishes at home. She also taught us about Venetian customs and traditions. Thanks, Gioia! Read more
★★★★★ Ann G. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class with Gioia. Gioia is friendly and engaging, and we enjoyed our conversation. We also loved making and eating wonderful food with her. The class itself was very hands on and very educational. This was the best thing we did during our 4 day stay in Venice and we can’t wait to make the dishes we learned at home for our friends and family. Read more
