Amateur chefs will have the chance to learn from professionals as the Venetian begins a series of cooking classes.
At the end of each class, participants will dine on the lunches they have prepared.
The classes will feature a variety of cuisines and techniques. The first one, which is Saturday in a professional kitchen at the hotel, will focus on the "Tastes of Northern Italy."
