Fantastic Cooking in Umbria! Raffaella is a fantastic host, teacher and person. We stayed 4 nights and had two days of lessons on how to cook in the traditional Italian style. We arrived very late due to flight issues, but Raffaella arranged for her daughter to greet us late at night and made sure we were comfortable. She taught us in her home and was so warm and welcoming. Raffaella is knowledgeable, friendly and a great teacher. She has a comprehensive understanding of local ingredients and taught us recipes passed down from her grandmother. We ate what we prepared, and it was …. Mmm Delicious! I can’t wait to try them out at home. Raffaella also had great recommendations for activities in the nearby towns (we went to Assisi and Perugia) and very accommodating of our requests. Highly recommended!

Great Hands-on Cooking Lesson! Absolutely the best experience! Everything was hands-on. Raffella took our food requests into consideration when planning the lesson. Her home was warm and welcoming. Raffella was patient and very organized. We loved the opportunity and so glad we choose this experience! Thank you Raffella!

Online cooking with Raffaella Our son and daughter-in-law recently joined us Online for a great Online cooking class with Raffaella. It was a Christmas gift and we decided to join them. We live in two different states, it was so much fun to be able to connect with them in the kitchen. Raffaella is a very talented chef, and her instructions were clear and easy to follow. We cooked a wonderful menu and we entertained friends for a special Italian dinner that evening. My husband and I spent a wonderful week cooking in Raffaella's beautiful home/farm in Umbria 2 years ago. One of our best vacations ever and we are hoping to return.

Meraviglioso Four of us attended “Let’s Cook in Umbria” for a 5 day cooking school. The owner/chef, Rafaella, welcomed us very, very late at night on the first day with open arms. We stayed in her warm, comfortable apartments located next to her home where the cooking classes take place. She and her family maintain a large garden, olive groves, and a vineyard on their farm. It’s a beautiful setting. Rafaella is charming, personable, has great sense of humor, and is a wonderful teacher.The classes take place in her home very near her kitchen in a living area that provides a cozy comfortable atmosphere. Rafaella uses her grandmother’s recipes, demonstrates necessary techniques, then encourages her students to do almost all of the preparation and cooking. Fantastic! She has to be a great chef because our meals accompanied by the family’s wines, were delicious. Let’s Cook in Umbria couldn’t have been better and therefore highly recommended.

Exploring Umbria while learning family cooking secrets We are experienced travelers who have enjoyed exploring local cooking classes and cultures. Rafaella offered exactly what we were seeking and more in her 7 day vacation package. Each morning she shared family cooking secrets from appetizers to main course to desserts followed by local tours as described on her website. Her family farm and warm reception offered the perfect setting for creating new memories and friendships. With a group of 7 others, we each partiipated in food preparation and enjoyed our efforts while sharing stories over lunch accompanied by the farm's own wine. Thanks to Raffaella, we had an absolutely perfect time.

An Exceptional Umbrian Experience We came to Umbria as a group of eight friends, and Raffaella helped us create an unforgettable experience. We had the best Umbrian meal in her beautiful farmhouse setting, where we also enjoyed learning about local food and customs. Raffaella is an amazing chef, host, and expert on the entire area. She also helped us to organize three different day trips in Umbria - guiding us to beautiful wineries, historic hilltop towns, and the most authentic truffle hunting experience with a friendly local hunter and his talented dog. In summary - whether you choose to stay, cook, eat or tour with Raffaella - you will have an exceptional experience.

Wonderful cooking class-highlight of our Umbrian trip! We attended a cooking class with Raffaella in October 2022. It was the highlight of our Umbrian vacation. The classes are in her home, a beautiful farm. She is a talented and kind teacher. The meal we made was absolutely delicious! The best meal in a trip of many delicious meals. I look forward to recreating it at home. I highly recommend taking one of her classes. You won't be disappointed.

Real home cooking Rafaella is an excellent, patient teacher of classic Umbrian cooking. In her home kitchen located in a beautiful countryside location, we made strangozzi, grape flavored pork loin, sausage and mushroom sauce, and crostata. All incredibly tasty, especially when served with her homemade rosso wine. A wonderful afternoon that was a great and fortifying break from sightseeing.

Great class! My parents and I had so much fun learning how to make this delicious food! They had everything ready and set out for us so that we were able to make all four courses. I can't wait to try the recipes at home.
