No matter what the menu, expect to use fresh herbs grown in Chef Marika’s garden as well as local products. The class will end around 2:30.

Chef Marika is a wonderful teacher and a great person as well! In addition to a spectacular all-hands-on-deck cooking class, she gave us many tips on visiting Venice -- where the locals eat, what not to miss in the city, how to get around. An insider's tour. Susan L. & Amy S., PA
