Our experience with Vielia in July 2014 was stupendous. As a lively group of Canadians in town to help celebrate a 25th Wedding Anniversary, our time with Velia was hands down the outstanding event to remember. Her love of food, her enthusiasm, her pure joy inspired us to savor every bite and to learn more of what a truly authentic... More

This cooking school was great fun. We were driven to their home and started cooking - the entire family and a neighbor were involved. It was a wonderful day for us.

When my wife told me that as part of our european holiday she had booked us into a cooking class in Orvieto,I was a little skeptical , which would not surprise those who know me, especially given that i haven't cooked since 1984! But a cooking class with Velia is not just for lovers of food, it is for lovers... More

We booked a class with Velia based on the crazy excellent recommendations here. It's all true!!! We were greeted with "Ciaos" and hugs right away and were instantly treated like family. Velia is funny, sweet, sincere, generous and an excellent teacher (and chef!). We laughed all day and learned so many things we can cook at home. We also ate... More

Recently returned from a three-week vacation that included a day at Velia's Cooking School in Monterubiaglio with Velia and Gianluca and it was a true highlight of the entire trip! Velia is a great teacher who takes special care in ingredient selection and demonstrates how delicious simple dishes can be. She is a master in the kitchen, explaining as she... More

Recently myself and a group of 23 friends rented out a castle in Carbonesca, Italy (Umbria) to celebrate a friends birthday. After much research, I reached out to Velia to inquire about her cooking classes. After numerous email's, Velia agreed to come to our location (2 hrs away) and teach a cooking class for 10 people. But not only did... More

I was given Velia's name from restaurant owner Mauro Stopponi in Orvieto. Velia and I became Facebook friends and this is how we communicated until our arrival. We met Velia and her friend Gianluca at their Wine Bar. We knew right away that we were in for a treat. The fact that she speaks fluent English is a plus. Gianluca... More
