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.
