Immerse yourself in the rhythms and beauty of farm life through Let’s Cook in Umbria’s many adventures, Italian cookery 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.

Authenticity is the keyword of our cooking holidays:

- authentic is the farm that hosts our cooking school, it is a lovely and relaxing oasis in the green heart of Italy, surrounded by olive trees, vineyards and fruit trees;
- authentic is the kitchen where you will have your cooking classes, I open the door of my home and you will cook in my kitchen in a true Italian atmosphere;
- authentic are our fresh seasonal ingredients coming from our luxuriant vegetable garden;
- authentic is the extra virgin olive oil used in the cooking classes, produced from olives that grow in the farm;

In our popular cooking classes we explore all aspects of the Italian cuisine sharing with you many traditional recipes. Our cooking classes are small and intimate as groups vary between two and eight participants, in order to assure a better enjoyment of each other’s company and get as much attention as possible.

The meals prepared will focus on fresh seasonal products and quality ingredients mainly coming for my farm.

Every morning our English speaking Italian chef will guide you the preparation of a 4-course meal completely home made. In a homely and informal atmosphere she will share with you her secrets and her best recipes. At the end of each class will enjoy the result of your work, sipping our organic wine
