We just spent two weeks touring around Italy and spent the last four of those days living at Raffaella's farmhouse and learning how to cook traditional Italian dishes, taught by Stefanie, including gnocchi and several different pastas. Very hands on, and learned a lot. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Especially, the fact that after eating all of that food and drinking wine,... More

The Accommodation - The 'farm' is on the outskirts of Perugia with a delightful outlook, quiet and serene. The accommodation is several apartments of quite good size, comprising combined sitting/dining/kitchen area, with a separate bedroom and bathroom. It's all rather rustic, but comfortable and relaxed. The outlook is to Umbrian hillsides, there is no noise, and there's plenty of space... More

The visit to Raffaella's farm and the cooking class in her home were highlights of our trip to Umbria with our daughters (ages 12 and 15). The warm atmosphere and encouragement of our teacher made mastering the four dishes we prepared (and ATE) such a pleasure. The half day class was a perfect way to spend a morning and we... More

Mrs. Raffaella did an excellent job in arranging the cooking class and the trips. We had fun doing the cooking with a chef, who was good and entertaining. The farm is located on a beautiful hill with a good view of the valley and the hills. Truffle hunting with Cecilla Valtiberina was top class. This is an excellent place to... More

After traveling solo for a week, it was so nice to feel at home at Rafaella's farm and kitchen. The one day cooking lesson and ceramic/chocolate tours, that Rafaella organized, truly felt like an authentic Italian experience. She was very accommodating to my gluten free diet which now gives me the confidence and tips to make pasta and gnocchi with... More

After some detours to Valfabricca and other Umbiran towns we found the farm after helpful directions from the owner Raffaella. The farm is set in a beautiful valley not far from Perugia. We got settled in a nice apartment on the farm with a bedroom and a kitchen/living room. The cooking class started the following day and was held in... More

In the hills around Perugia, in a personal atmosphere we were taught in a few hours how to cook some very authentic Italian dishes. Raffaella and Stefania took good care of us and made us feel more than welcome. If you like cooking and eating, I would recommend this.

Partaking in an Italian cookery course in Italy has been on my ‘bucket list’ for a while. Wow, I am so pleased I chose Let’s Cook Umbria for the location following checking out the tripadvisor reviews. From start to end, Rafaella was the hostess with the mostest. The olde worlde apartments are fully equipped with fridge, hob, utensils etc. Food... More

The whole experience was enjoyable from arriving and going on a wine tour, to 4 days cooking, then hiring a car and touring the area including Assisi, Gubbio and lake Trasimeno. Raffaella gave us lifts, organised the car hire and much more. She was as lovely a host as you could wish for and Stefania, our cookery teacher was great... More
