Don't just sit in a restaurant but be a true Venetian! Pick the best fresh fish at the Rialto market, cross the Canal Grande on a gondola and hurry up heading home. Be your own chef in a state of the art kitchen overlooking the canal.
Be a true Venetian! Fish tastes better when it is fresh, seasonal and local, especially if you personally buy it and cook it at home with the tips of a local guy!
The market place in Venice is Rialto: its fish market is noisy, raw, authentic and full of true venetian life. Fish is artfully arranged on stalls covered with deep layers of crushed ice; seagulls wander among the fishmongers calling out today's catch, local people purposefully browse the stalls scattered in the two halls of the "Pescheria", as generations of Venetians have been doing for the past 800 years!
As soon as you have made your best choice for fish, you will cross the Canal Grande on a Gondola ferry, most probably together with some local housewives hurrying up heading home! With a 15 minutes’ walk through hidden "calles" you will reach Fondamente Nove, where you will catch a vaporetto to Murano where the cooking will take place.
You will cook your meal together with a local Venetian while tasting some glasses of prosecco, some appetizers and enjoying the view on the canal from the dining room.
Following the tips of your host you will cook pasta with a tasty fish sauce while a seabass is baking to perfection in the oven.
The conclusion of the lunch will be a strong Italian coffee, of course brewed from a moka machine.
