“Fabulous cooking class”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

I had the great pleasure of joining one of Letizia's cooking classes in September while I was staying in Umbria. We were a small group, only five of us, and we started the day with a visit to Terra Umbra where we tasted oil, balsamic, salume, cheeses and liqueurs. When we got to Letizia's amazing B&B we had a glass of wine on her terrace with stunning views across the valley while she prepared the kitchen, then the "hard" work began. We made two different types of pasta and a wonderful crostata. The day was fantastic, lots of fun and full of excellent advice from Letizia, who is a wonderful cook and a very warm and funny person. I had the most amazing day and was sorry when it finished. I would love to do it all again as it was an fabulous experience.

“Cooking with Letizia”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We loved the intro lesson & tasting of olive oil, balsamic, salumi, chocolate at Terra Umbra in 'downtown' San Maria del Angeli and then the winding drive up the hill to your wonderful home. What followed was truly enjoyable, informative & of course satisfying to the palette & belly! We all played a part in preparing the meal of antipasti, pork scallopini, whole potatoes baked in rock salt, zucchini salad (layered with garlic & lemon juice, then topped with toasted almonds), and to finish fig crostini & home made limoncello.
Thank you so much. We look forward to meeting you again

“One of the best days (and there were twenty great days!)”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had an extraordinary time hanging out with Letizia in her beautiful kitchen making amazing food! She is delightful, a great teacher, and a joyous spirit. We learned how to make pasta and, upon returning home to the US, we made it on our own and it turned out beautifully! Cannot wait to return!

“Second Time is the Charm”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

This is our second time taking Letizia's Pasta Making Class. This year, we brought our 17 year old daughter along. What a great way to spend a day in Umbria! From the olive oil, cheese, vinegar, meat tasting in Santa Maria degli Angeli to the EASY instructions for making our own Strangozzi pasta, Letizia hosted us for an incredible day of cooking...and eating & drinking. She is such a joy and even honored my request to make the dessert a chocolate one to appease my daughter. Last year our class was filled with all Americans. This year we had a blend of Americans & Dutch. What a fun day! Grazie Letizia!!!

“Italian citizen who was taught some lessons.. Excellent time”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

First off I am a Italian citizen who knows a thing about food from travel and having a gourmet kitchen at home. I signed up my family to take a class because we live in Umbria part time and wanted something close to the house. We could not have been happier in the experience that we had. She is a pleasure to work with, listen too and be in the kitchen with. We ate during the summer months out on her terrace/patio... THE views were utterly spectacular. that alone would be a highlight.. She worked with my two boys and us on pasta dishes, cantaloupe dessert and some side dishes that i can't recall at the moment. A definite highlight of our trip. I have friends who are going for their honeymoon out to our house and I can't wait to hear how much they love the time with Leitzia.. A cooking class that all novice and experienced cooks should do.
