Culinary Venice and Lagoon

Online Travel Coaching. E-Books. E-Courses. Retreat Days. Language and Heritage Lessons.

You don’t have to be Venetian to love the floating town. Many people not living in Venice miss her sights, sounds, feel and colors.

This is why I wanted to create an experience where you can keep in touch when you’re not there. Prepare for your next visit. Relive and expand your understanding back home. Candlelight dinner and garden brunch on special occasions. From Venice, we can learn for life.

I offer travel coaching services, retreat days and e-books. Venetian culinary, beauty and health topics. The forgotten secrets of herbs and spices.

 Venetian Hospitality

Venice the Pioneer. Commerce. Cooking. Health. Wisdoms of Life. Coffee …

Expressions of our “insular”, rather than maritime character (Venezianitudine). Discover the secret behind the features of Venice, her homes, food and gardens, and you will really get to know us.

Enjoy an immersive Venice experience, well beyond my Blog, La Venessiana. My first step is E-Books. In summer 2015, I started travel coaching in an “official” manner. I provide insights – online and in Venice – on culinary, health and beauty food from the Lagoon. Venetian lifestyle – homes, gardens and their history. Unearthing the secrets of herbs and spices, ingredients for gourmet dishes. My first support is my Grandmother. Her family library represents a valuable resource and input.

About Me – Iris

My approach to getting to know a place (almost) everyone wants to vist once in a lifetime. Some visitors develop a life-long bond to the city in the midst of her 550 km² Lagoon. Many of you keep coming back. Venice doesn’t unveil her teachings on a first visit. Access has to be earned. This is why I have created this offer.
