Let’s Cook in Umbria: fun hands-on cooking classes and culinary tours in Italy

Vacations for lovers of Italian Cuisine and Traditions


Cookery classes in Italy: Culinary Holidays and Tours


Immerse yourself in the rhythms and beauty of farm life through Let’s Cook in Umbria’s 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. This is the perfect place to learn about authentic Italian food, touring beautiful art sites and relaxing in the gardens or by the pool.


We offer the following Culinary Holiday Programs:


I, Raffaella, run this scenic and peaceful family farm. The cooking classes and the lunches are held in my family home by a English speaking Native Italian teacher. We will guide you through the preparation of simple but delicious Italian recipes and will reveal our culinary secrets.

Our cookery lessons allow you to immerse yourself in the Italian culture and lifestyle and learn to cook authentic Italian recipes in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

In the farm we produce vegetables, fruits, eggs, jams, wine and extra-virgin olive oil: the same organic ingredients used to prepare the food during our cooking lessons.

I am waiting you to offer a truly unique culinary adventure!

Let’s Cook in Umbria is an oasis of peace where you can rejuvenate your senses.


Located in Umbria, the heart of Italy, not far from Tuscany, the charming, lovingly restored farmhouse – B&B is surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards and olive trees, and steeped in Etruscan and Medieval history.

Our cooking programs are available year round on request for a minimum of 2 two people.

Groups are kept small, and 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.

We also accept bigger groups (up to 20 person) for cooking demonstrations and tours. If interested, you can send in a request.


Upon request, we can also arrange for you to be picked up from/dropped at one of main Italian airports.

I encourage you to contact me for more information or further details: raffaella@cookinumbria.com
