Raffaella's cooking experience in Umbria was wonderful. The immersive session beautifully captured the essence of Umbrian cooking and the rich culinary culture of Italy. Raffaella, our wonderful guide, was not only kind and energetic but also meticulous in her instructions, guiding us through the entire preparation and cooking process. She shared fascinating insights into the origin of each ingredient and how it contributed to the flavours of the dish. Whether you're a cooking professional or an amateur, I highly recommend this experience for a truly enriching culinary adventure.

An absolute must do if you are going to be near Perugia Italy. This cooking experience is by far the Best I have ever experienced. Raffella has tips that will enhance your cooking experience. Best cooking class ever. We learned how and made a 4 course meal that was fantastic.

We had a wonderful time and we learned A LOT! Raffaella was wonderful. So patient with us beginners. The meals were tasty and easy to replicate at home. After we cooked, we enjoyed a relaxing lunch with wine from her vineyard. It was perfect! We took the session the week before Christmas which was perfect! Our afternoon tours were to small villages where we saw beautiful Christmas decorations and Christmas markets. The weather in Italy is mild compared to our winters in Michigan. Our guide, Paulo, was fabulous. It was like walking around with a friend. Since the group was small, we could stop at our leisure for coffee or to shop at a little store. I highly recommend!

Raffaella is a wonderful host and very effective teacher. She brought us into her farmhouse and taught us how to cook Umbrian dishes with local ingredients. I can’t wait to try it at home. Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful experience with Raffaella and her cooking class. Held in her wonderful home in the Umbrian hills just out of Perugia we cooked delicious bread, tartufo pasta, involtini and chocolate and pear cake. She then set a gorgeous table for us to enjoy the food we cooked. Such incredible tasty, yet simple food. I highly recommend Raffaella’s cooking class. She’s such a wonderful teacher and host!

We had a lovely cooking experience with Rafaella! The classes were hands on, personal, with lots of attention for detail. We followed the 3 day cooking class and it was fun, delicious and we learned so much! Rafaella makes sure that you learn all the details, that you practice all the steps and she answers all your questions. Also the accommodation was great with a nice apartment, great views and near to many beautiful towns to visit.
