Discover the old market and make fresh pasta

Share a memorable experience with the locals. Discover the secrets of the Veronese tradition by buying local products in the old market and learn and learn how to make pasta with the chef.


We meet with the chef at Villafranca, in front of the Scaliger Castle. The experience begins with a walk among the market stalls. After carefully choosing the ingredients to be used for the preparation of the dishes, the cooking lesson takes place just a few steps from the market. We will welcome you in a typical Venetian cuisine with a beautiful garden and overlooking the Castle.

With eggs and flour you will learn the secret techniques to make an excellent pasta as grandmothers once did. You will knead the dough by hand, creating the famous Tortellini “Nodo d’amore” and other local products such as pappardelle or tortelli stuffed with seasonal vegetables from the market. You will prepare the famous Tiramisu, the Italian’s favorite dessert!

An authentic Veronese experience to be enjoyed in company and after having fun creating the dishes, we will taste them in combination with the renowned Veronese wines.
