Immerse yourself in the rhythms and beauty of farm life and nature through let’s cook in umbria’s many adventures, italian cooking classes and cultural activities.

Since 2005 we have been offering an authentic cooking experience, set in a real farmhouse located in the heart of Italy. Come join our cooking classes, gourmet tours, excursions to chocolate and olive oil producers and  truffle hunting. Check out our popular cooking vacation packages , that include accommodations in the apartments of the farmhouse, cooking classes and excursions to villages throughout Umbria and Tuscany.
We offer a unique opportunity to spend some time in the countryside of Umbria, learning about authentic Italian food, touring beautiful art sites  and relaxing in the garden or by the pool. In the farm we produce vegetables, fruits, eggs, jams, wine and extra-virgin olive oil : the same local ingredients that are used to prepare the food during our cooking classes.
Raffaella runs this scenic and peaceful family farm, located only 4km  from the historical centre of Perugia. She has chickens, vegetable garden, olive  trees, vineyard and an assortment of friendly cats.
The cooking classes and the lunches are held in Raffaella's home.  During the hands-on cooking lessons you will have the chance to prepare some authentic Italian dishes in an informal and friendly environment, and will learn the passion of the Italian kitchen. Our Italian (English-speaking) teacher will guide you through the preparation of simple but delicious Italian recipes and will reveal some of her culinary secrets.  
Raffaella, the owner of the farm, is waiting you to offer a truly unique cooking adventure!

    “Great part of our honeymoon!”

    My wife and I did the Christmas Vacation program on our honeymoon and had a fantastic time with Raffaella and Stefania. We had our private apartment that included a kitchen/living room with cookware, plates, television, etc.; a separate bedroom; and a bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower stall. Heating provided by radiators in each room. The kitchen included a basket with bread, jam, salami, sweets, milk, etc. for our breakfasts. We had a fantastic view out our window.

    Cooking classes were conducted in the mornings in Raffaella's home which is next to the apartments. The house was warm and inviting with a nice fire on the cold December mornings and her dog and cats lying around. Both Raffaella and Stefania are fluent in English, so the classes were easy to understand. Each day we cooked traditional Italian food that Umbrians enjoy around Christmas, working hand-in-hand with Stefania to make each meal from scratch. This included everything from hand-making pastas to making sauces and cooking meats on the stove. Each meal consisted of an appetizer, a first course, a second course, and a dessert, and each day after cooking we got to sit and enjoy the fruits of our labors in a private dining room.

    In the afternoons we went on private guided tours of surrounding cities, including Corciano, Assisi, and Gubio. We were taken by private bus with the driver Fabio and tours were conducted by a professional guide named Jana. We learned about the history and culture of each city and generally spent about 3-3.5 hours on each tour. Afterward Fabio gave us the option of being dropped off in Perugia (taxi back to the farm) or being taken back to the farm, with an optional stop at a grocery store if we wanted to cook dinner in the apartment.

    All in all we had a fantastic time and would love to go back for a different program if we had the opportunity. We have already made several of the recipes we learned here at home and the instructions were good enough that our versions were just as good. Thanks Raffaella and Stefania for helping make such a memorable visit as part of our honeymoon! :D

    Make a delicious meal in Raffa's home!”
     
    teach a singing workshop at the lovely farm of Raffa and Roberto and I have had the pleasure of tasting many of the results of the cooking classes taught by Stefania. This trip I was fortunate to be able to be a student in the class making a winter menu of Tagliatelle all' Amatriciana, Pork with Grapes, Crostata and Torta al Testo filled with stracchino and proscuitto. Stefania is a great teacher. She demonstrates the different kneading techniques for the pasta, the torta and the crostata and everyone gets involved and learns. The food is delicious and the recipes and apron are included. We all sat down to eat and had the wine that is made by Alberta, her mother-in-law, on the farm. It's a down home experience in a wonderfully hospitable home. Apartments are available and many interesting tourist destinations are close by that Raffa will happily book for guests.
