We had a great time here with Raffaella and the people joining in the same class. The class is ran at Raffaella's house which has a big living room and surrounded by their farm. We brought our 2 year old son together and he enjoyed there as well by running around and chasing the cat and dog there. The assistant was also very nice helping to take care my son while both my husband and I were busy making homemade pasta. Highly recommend if you want to enjoy a nice and relaxing cooking class in Umbria!
What a delightful and filling experience. For me it was a decision out of the blue during a rainy few days in Umbria. I couldn't have been more satisfied. Whether you're new to the kitchen or know your way around it, cooking with Rafaella is fun, informative, and a special opportunity to experience the Italian way. Of course, the food is great.
We are two families traveling with two 7-year-old kids. We had a 5-day-4-night stay at the farm, with three cooking classes and three wonderful tours (wine, chocolate factory and Siena) which left us with great experience and memories. The host Raffaella is a lovely and passionate woman who responded quickly to whatever requests and enquiries we had before and during our stay. Merely staying in the farm was a fantastic experience for us to get close to nature and appreciate its rustic charm. The cooking classes led by Stefania were wonderful, where we learned a lot of practical tips on authentic Italian cooking. Our kids had a great time at the cooking classes, in the swimming pool, playing around the farm with Raffaella's five cats and one dog, and of course the not to be missed visit to the chocolate factory ... The nearby city Perugia is a lovely and interesting place where you can spend a few days exploring and strolling around. Thank you so much Raffaella! We look forward to visiting your farm again soon!!
Wonderful experience! Hands-on food preparation, including pasta! This was followed by a full four-course meal in the garden, with lovely wine. You get a certificate of participation, folder with all the recipes, and an apron to keep. Met people from all over the world!
If you want to experience Italy in a real way, this is the way to do it! Raffaella was amazing as she moved the lesson along to include each of us while making it fun. Even an experienced person in the kitchen will learn something from the lessons and you'll be part of something authentic to Italy. I'd encourage anyone to take part in "Let's Cook in Umbria" and experience the beauty of the real landscape and cuisine of Italy. Umbria is breath-taking and Raffaella will make your class a memory that you'll cherish forever.
