Cooking classes in Italy: fun hands-on cooking lessons and culinary vacations in Italy

Let’s Cook in Umbria: Cooking 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 surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards and olive trees, and steeped in Etruscan and Medieval history. This is the perfect place to learn about authentic Italian food, touring beautiful art sites and relaxing in the gardens or by the pool.




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

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.

All our Culinary Programs are available on request for any day, year round, based upon availability, for a minimum of two and a maximum of eight people, in order to assure a better enjoyment of each other’s company and get as much attention as possible. If you are a Solo Traveller please contact us to discuss the date you can join in a booked group.


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