Hi my name’s Anna. Having taught cookery and Italian and studying painting at the Academy of Fine Arts here in Venice, I am now a personal chef for private events and particularly love cooking with others to create traditional Venetian, Italian and Mediterranean dishes with an emphasis on simple, fresh and seasonal ingredients.

And I’m Marta! – Born in Venice where I studied architecture, my real passion is the arts…and the art of being together! For me, cooking has always been an integral part of my life and I feel lucky to be able to express this as a private chef. Cooking in Italy is a vital ingredient of our social life and it’s a huge and mouth-watering universe to explore!

Together we started ‘Komida’ – a fun ‘hands on’ concept where clients take part in preparing typical Venetian dishes within convivial surroundings together making a banquet we all share and enjoy!

Your cooking experience starts at the famous Rialto food market – a thrilling sensory smorgasbord of colours, sounds, textures and aromas where you’ll join us in selecting the morning’s freshest fish/seafood, fruit, vegetables and meats to create a super-seasonal menu in tune with your tastes. Then we’ll stop off at a typical Venetian ‘bacaro’ – as is customary when shopping in these parts! – for a refreshing prosecco or your tipple of choice before returning to your apartment to prepare our culinary feast.

For ideas take a look at the following sample menu or let us recommend a special ‘Menu of the Day’ – tell us about your likes and desires, rest assured there’ll be plenty of choice!
