We had a great time with Raffaella. She gave us copies of the recipes we cooked during the class and gave us hands-on experience. We had several members of our group who didn't cook but they were able to join us later to eat. We enjoyed learning how to prepare the traditional dishes of Umbria and then eating them. I... More

Let’s Cook in Umbria cooking vacation was one of the most wonderful parts of our trip to Italy this June. First, there is Raffaella, who is charming, warm and witty, and greeted us with hugs, food for our apartment and homemade cake and jam. From the first moment you meet her, you want to be best friends. The cooking classes... More

Our cooking class with Raffaella was the highlight of our wonderful stay at her Agriturismo la volpe e l'uva. Instruction was clear and precise and delivered with warmth, laughter and energy, ending with a delightful lunch in her garden. Without a hint of burden or frustration Raffaella accommodated our dietary needs (no meat) even thought this meant dual preparation for... More

This was one of the highlights of a four week tour around Italy. The class was held in Raffaellas home and she makes sure you feel right at home! We were welcomed in with hugs and cups of coffee and invited to sit at her table while we waiting for the other people participating in the class. We then created... More

I enjoyed the time spent preparing, cooking and learning about Umbrian foods and life. The class gives a glimpses into everyday life in an Italian kitchen and home. Our hostess and teacher was knowledge and instructive. I also enjoyed eating the food we prepared the recipes will be used in my home. A day well spent and one I would... More

We attended Raffaellas class this morning, and oh wow, what a great, authentic experience. The class is held at her house, which is also a Guesthouse with a pool - and my mum, sister and I joined 5 other people for a group lesson. Raffaella is extremely welcoming, her home is beautiful, and she is also so funny! She selected... More

I've taken this class before and now, again with a new menu, taught by Raffa. It just keeps getting better and better! Raffa gives some history along with tips about cooking while you make a 4 course meal all done in her warm and cozy home. We made panzanella, gnocchi with eggplant puree and fresh tomato sauce, pork with grapes,... More

My brother and I had long promised ourselves an Italian cooking experience. Let's Cook in Umbria fitted our criteria and so we booked. To say it eclipsed any expectations we might have had is an understatement. Raffaella was so welcoming and the cooking classes were impeccably organised. I learned so much in just four lessons. The recipes were brilliant and... More

I have been searching for a hands-on and intimate cooking school experience which would be interesting, educational and fun. I definitely "hit the jackpot" with Rafaella and her school. From the first communication we had, Rafaella was understanding and attentive to my needs. She compiled a trip for me (traveling alone) which included cooking class every day followed by afternoon...

Learning how to cook and prepare Authentic Italian Cuisine is one of my bucket list. And yes it's all came true with the help of our amazing Cooking Class Teacher - Signora Raffaella! 1 week stay in her farm house is one of the best holidays i had. Learning how to prepare fresh Pasta is just so awesome! I felt... More
