Join local expert Cecila Sitran for a culinary journey through Venice, highlighting the delicious local cuisine, unique wines, and traditional ingredients of the storied lagoon city and its surroundings.

Venice, an open-air museum known for its beautiful churches, elegant palaces, and charming canalside alleyways, is also a culinary mecca. Based mainly on fresh fish and seafood, both from the surrounding lagoon and the Adriatic sea, Venetian cuisine has a millennial history. Together we will discuss the typical dishes and preparations from the area and how they are used to mark special occasions and local events. Because Venice historically ruled the lagoon and also nearby mainland territories, we will talk about the ingredients from the countryside that have become integral to Venetian cooking. We’ll start with appetizers, first and second courses before moving on to desserts and digestivo!

Led by an expert on food and wine, Cecilia Sitran, this interactive seminar will explore Venice’s culinary landscape. Designed to inform curiosity and future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of Venetian menus and how to order food and drink from the lagoon and nearby mainland.

After her degree in Economics of Art and Culture at the University of Venice, Cecilia Sitran studied for two years to obtain her diploma of Sommelier. She has worked in one of the most prestigious wine shops in Venice. She has also completed a master's in the South of France on organic wines. As a freelance sommelier, she shares her Venetian roots while tasting local wines surrounded by the beauty of Venice. She teaches cooking courses in Venice that combine fresh ingredients and wine aromas. In 2020 Cecilia studied for the globally recognized Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 2, successfully passed with distinction. At present Cecilia leads wine courses for few American Military bases in Italy.

The Fabulous Food of Venice and the Veneto Region

Cecilia's presentation was excellent. Her knowledge of Venice, its markets and food came through beautifully because of the powerpoint she shared. Clearly she was prepared. I had the privilege of shopping and cooking with her a year ago and truly hope that another opportunity is in my future. I hope she can present again for others to learn from her.

Longing for Venice?

This was a wonderful journey through Venice and the Veneto with a native of that area. Cecilia was knowledgable and passionate about the intersection of food, wine, and culture of the region, and really seemed to care that the participants enjoyed the session. I was inspired to go to region and want to meet her on my next trip to Venice!
