Welcome to Let’s Cook in Umbria: Cooking classes in Italy and Food Tours

Authentic and passionate Italian Cooking classes, 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 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.
