If you want to experience Italy in a real way, this is the way to do it! Raffaella was amazing as she moved the lesson along to include each of us while making it fun. Even an experienced person in the kitchen will learn something from the lessons and you'll be part of something authentic to Italy. I'd encourage anyone... More

We had a wonderful time participating in this cooking class and staying at the B & B outside Perugia. The class was well organized and the excursions included in the afternoons were all really interesting and sometimes also well tasting (winery and chocolate factory!). We made different kinds of pasta from scratch, with eggs from the farm, regional cheese and... More

Raffaella and Stephania provided a wonderful menu for us to learn each day. Fabulous cooking classes and then, delightful luncheon with wonderful new friends. Raffaella is a warm, energetic hostess who opens her wonderful home and farm to her guests. A truly very special Umbrian experience. Highly recommend! Ellen Goldstein, Wash.DC

My sister and I were looking for an authentic cooking experience and this was it! The class was held in Rafaella's home which gave the entire experience an intimate and cozy feel. We prepared 4 dishes and had a beautifully set lunch afterwards.

I have taken cooking classes here twice now and have left so happy both times. Rafaella is an amazing host and teacher. Her home, which doubles as the classroom and a bed and breakfast, is a wonderful place to spend time. It offers a beautiful view of the rolling Italian countryside and is not far from Perugia. I would recommend... More

We purchased the half day cooking class but I wish we had stayed there. The property is beautiful and serene. The cooking class uses fresh ingredients and is easy to follow. They accommodated my gluten free needs well. I made gnocchi for the first time and it was delicious! My husband even joined in making the chicken roulades.We didnt want... More

Booked for this cooking class prior to leaving Australia , due to great reviews and recommendations on trip adviser. I booked in for a half day for €100. The website indicates 3 to 4 hours of preparation and cooking, my class was 1 3/4 hours of preparation and cooking. Not all recipes were supplied and class was ushered out of... More

We always appreciate our guests' feedback, as it helps us improve the service that we can provide them. Our cooking classes include the preparation, from scratch, of a four-course meal, which requires approximately between three and four hours (cooking and lunch included), depending on the recipes and the number and skill level of the participants. The group that day (five... More

We stayed for one week in this delightful B&B cottage in the Umbrian Hills overlooking the valley and across to the hills on the other side. Our aim was to have cooking classes, Italian classes and do some trekking in the hills. The hospitality was genuine, we felt part of the family. The proprietors supplied us with ample breakfast and... More

I booked a half day cooking class with Let’s Cook in Umbria. Although we roughly mapped out the route the night before, we decided to follow the GPS which was not really clued in on where we wanted to go. We zigged instead of zagging, stopped to call for directions, drove around in circles, and came upon Rafaella in her... More

I found Let's cook in Umbria through Trip Advisor and the reviews made me think it was the right place. The setting is almost like a movie - looking over olive trees and hills. The lessons were very useful - I love to cook but I have never been organized. Stefania. The lessons can be brought home - all accessible... More
