Our cooking classes in Umbria activities can take place right at the villa where you are staying, or sometimes in some other villas where you will join some other of our guests. In this case the price lowers significantly and you will meet new interesting people! In any case, our cooking classes / parties are planned and discussed in advance. We will propose you the most interesting options for that day.

The cooking class can take place in the morning, followed by lunch, or in the afternoon followed by dinner.

Joining our cooking classes in Umbria is truly a great opportunity to have a better understanding about Italian cuisines and how to cook authentic dishes. You and your companions will see how an Italian makes a fresh fettuccine, risotto, or pizza from scratch. If you want to learn some specific recipe, this is great, just let us know.

We always try to include local organic ingredients, depending on the seasonal availability. You will taste the freshness of asparagus, truffle mushroom, olives served with cold cuts, cheeses and much more.

Cooking classes and demonstrations are led by Mario Santoro and occasionally accompanied by local food and wine experts.

A casual lunch or dinner will follow the cooking class. Guests will enjoy the fruits of their labor and enjoy conversation with our local experts.

Price: 60 Euro per person (includes food, house wine, limoncello and grappa.)

Children under the age of 6 do not pay, but please advise us of any children when you book.
