Imagine cooking with four people, privately with the chef, in the magnificent five star Gritti Palace Hotel! We savored, smelled, ate, drank, discussed and emensely enjoyed our 7-hours. I booked a private cooking glass at the Epicurean School in the Gritti Palace. We met the sous chef and walked to the Rialto market where we selected a menu, plucked the freshest sea bass and vegetables available. On our walk back to the Gritti, we stopped to experience a birreia. We enjoyed seafood appetizers and wine. Back at the Gritti, we were given a private tour of the Hemingway Presidential Suite which was amazing in itself. Our four-course meal included:
chocolate mousse; radicchio salad with soft-shell crab, seafood rossitto and a meringue encased sea bass stuffed with a bouquet garni. The experience was once in a life time and worth every penny of the price. We proudly kept our aprons!
