Listing Reviews Reviews of 5 Days Italian Cooking Holidays in Italy

“Highly recommended!”
Sep 04, 2017 
I had so much fun and learned so much cooking with Rafaella. Cosy place, very tasty authentic Umbrian dishes all made from scratch. Rafaella is a very warm, friendly lady and a talented cook. She also organised an afternoon tour to the nearby Spello which was very handy. It was rainy and wasn't the best for outdoor excursion but I still thoroughly enjoyed the day. Highly recommended if you ever visit Umbria!

Italian cooking in wonderful surroundings
Aug 20, 2017 
Raffaella is a fabulous Italian cook who teaches her students honest, rustic Umbrian dishes. She is friendly and makes the kitchen environment fun.
This is a great way to meet other travellers from all over the world. The food that is cooked is then eaten outside by the chefs preparing it in a very pretty courtyard garden. The quality of the food is amazing and the hints and tips Raffaella provides during her cookery lessons really useful. She also provides recipes to take home.

Learning new skills in a beautiful place
Aug 13, 2017 
I enjoyed every minute of Let's cook in Umbria. I stayed for 6 nights and had 4 cooking classes and tours each day. Rafaella the amazing lady who runs the farm stay, teaches classes and organises her family created a wonderful experience for me, that I am so grateful for. Highly recommend this type of holiday if you want to learn more about Italian food, how to cook or venture around the beautiful towns that Umbria has to offer. A tranquil place for a relaxing holiday and delicious food!
