We just finished four days of cooking and six nights stay at the lovely apartments at La Volpe e L'Uva. The whole experience was wonderful. With Raffaella as our generous hostess and Stefania as our talented teacher, we made gnocchi, ravioli and tagliatelle, main dishes and pizza, and the best tiramisu ever. Cooking classes started at 930 am and ended... More

A highly recommended experience: Within a short drive from the center of Perugia you find yourself in the central Italian countryside at Rafaella’s quaint home farm. The simplicity is perfect. This is a real down-home cooking experience. Rafaella is welcoming and engaging. You are quickly greeted with coffee and introduced to the menu you will be preparing. Stephania the instructor...

We had a blast. We also learned a lot. Stephania is both passionate and knowledgable about Italian cooking. A great blend of science, common sense, and culture. As soon as we got home we started trying out the recipes we learned. The food was wonderful and the class was fun. Of all we did in Italy, Let's Cook in Umbria... More

Raffaella and Stefania have created an incredibly special place in Perugia. My husband and I joined them for the four-night, three-day Christmas cooking experience and we couldn't have had a better time. During our time there we cooked three enormous, authentic Italian meals and we were treated to afternoon/evening tours of Gubbio, Assisi and another small mountain town near Perugia.... More

This little farm was magical! The view from the farm was breathtaking. We were there in November so we were not able to use the pool, but no big deal. The cooking classes were wonderful, the teacher, Stephania, was very good and funny. I've even made some of the recipes we learned back at home! The host of the farm,... More

My sister and I wanted to experience 'cooking in Italy' and found Rafaella's website. We added my daughter (24) and sister's friend to our group, and the four of us planned the trip-of-a-lifetime to Italy. Believe me, it was a trip I'll never forget. Raffaella planned and organized excursions for our afternoons that were unforgettable, and Stephania put together cooking... More

Joining a cooking class with Let’s Cook in Umbria was one of the best decisions I made for our vacation. We stayed in Perugia after Florence and before Rome, and I thought a cooking class would be a great way to learn more about the region. Rafaella was very responsive to my initial inquiry and subsequent questions, and my husband... More

Four of us wanted to experience an authentic Italian cooking class and Raffaella's was just perfect for our trip as we were staying in nearby Perugia. The whole experience was just what we were after with excellent tuition by Stephania and all hands on. We were able to cook a full meal and best of all enjoy lunch all prepared... More

For a return trip to Italy we decided that a cooking class was an experience we wanted for this year. A very good decision to choose Let's cook in Umbria and a great experience with hands-on practice. Eating the product of our efforts with Rafaelle's homemade wine was so good! The group was small enough (6) that it was fun... More

There were 8 of us traveling from the United States and we stayed at the farm two nights and 6 of us did the cooking class. My husband had the massage (he said it was great). The cooking class was great, not only did we learn how to make the food that we prepared - Stephania provided us with tips... More
