Excellent cookery class!
We booked last minute due to the uncertainty of our holiday going ahead because of the pandemic and travelling from the U.K. Rafaella was quick to respond and it was absolutely worth every penny. We were just the two of us (me and my new husband) and got to prepare and cook a four course Italian meal, along with her local homemade red wine. We will never forget the experience and only wish we hadn’t eaten breakfast so that we could have enjoyed all of the food we had prepared! If you’re looking for an activity on holiday then we would highly recommend! Thank you Rafaella!

"Let's Cook in Umbria," ZOOM edition!
Apr 2020
This is our third experience with Let's Cook in Umbria. The first two were at the beautiful agriturismo, and this time we were in our own home. What a wonderful idea to offer live online cooking classes! The class was really put together in an efficient and easy to understand way. Recipes and an instruction sheet with ingredients, required cooking implements, and advanced prep helped to get set up an ready. Raffa used videos and was able to start, stop, and go back to sections as needed. The videos were silent and she gave live instructions and took questions throughout the class. It is a fun way to learn Italian recipes and I highly recommend it! Let's Cook in Umbria also recently was listed as one of the top cooking schools in Italy. Grazie Mille for a wonderful experience!

Great cooking class in Perugia
Mar 2020 • Couples
We had a wonderful time cooking with Raffaella. We cooked a traditional four course meal from old family recipes with wine, coffee and tea.
We highly recommend a cooking class with Raffaella. Had we not pre-booked elsewhere it would have been nice to stay there as well.

4 generation celebration of FAMILY !
Feb 2020 • Family
What an amazing experience!!! On a four generation girls trip to Italy!! Searched for a cooking class and my niece found this!! Everything start to finish was perfect!! You are welcomed like Italian family into her home, she has coffee waiting and wonderful conversation about family. The class was awesome, we all participated.... appetizer, home made pasta with thick ragu sauce, pork tenderloin and a strawberry torte. We ate this in her dining room accompanied by a bottle of her estate red wine!!

What a day to remember.... my mom 78, Myself 50, my niece celebrating her 31 st birthday, my daughter 9 years old and my great niece 6 months old were all welcomed!!

Beautiful, spectacular and just what we were looking for

Thank you so much ♥️♥️

Loved it all
Nov 2019
Rafaella is a great host, knowledgable, welcoming & authentic. The food you cook is fantastic traditional umbrian fare and you really are involved in every aspect of production, from base ingredients to finished article. I watched her adapt style for foodies who wanted the detail and kids who loved to chop. Every morning was great fun and the resulting lunches delicious accompanied by fantastic wine made on farm. Afternoon excursions were good value too and a great way to walk off a bigger than average lunch. Accomodation is warm and cozy. Nothing fancy but all you need. I'd love to find an excuse to go back.

Amazing 3 days
Sep 2019
We had a wonderful time doing our 3 day cooking course with Rafaella and also staying in her accomodation. The food we cooked was delicious and we had lots of fun in the classes learning all the different techniques. Rafaella was an amazing host and teacher. The accomodation we stayed in was excellent and easy to arrange transport to Perugia and other locations. What a beautiful area. It was definitely a highlight on our holiday and we were sad to leave.

The highlight of our trip to Italy
What a fun experience! Four of us took the half day class. Two were serious cooks and two not so much. We all enjoyed the experience of preparing a variety of dishes and even more enjoyable was eating our creations. Raffaella is delightful and even gave us a tour of the farm. It made us wish we had booked a farm stay.

Excellent Day1
Oct 2019
My husband and I were lucky enough to share a class with Raffaella. The classes are held in her beautiful agriturismo in her own kitchen. We had a class of 10 yet we never felt rushed or a lack of Raffaella's attention. Together we learned and prepared a 4 course meal of typical Umbrian fare, had a lovely walk through the farm, and then sat down to enjoy the fruits of our labors plus some of the farm's organic red wine (which was delicious). We got to commune with interesting folks, Raffaella is gracious and knowledgeable and entertaining. She made us feel warm and welcome. Highly recommend!

Authentic 5 course Italian cooking course in beautiful surroundings
Sep 2019
What an awesome experience. We travelled to Perugia with friends to attend a cooking course with Raffaella on her beautiful farm. We booked a 2 day course and were joined by another couple on each day of the course. Each day we prepared a different 5 course typical Italian meal which we enjoyed together in the farm dining room with plenty of the farm's own wine. A lot of the ingredients used were grown on the farm too so were lovely and fresh, particularly the different herbs used in the dishes. We stayed on the farm and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings so typical of the area. The accommodation was lovely, clean and comfortable, Raffaella even provided towels for swimming which was great as we were travelling from UK and South Africa. I loved that we prepared our meals in Raffaella's home which somehow made it feel more like authentic Italian cooking. We learned a lot from the tips and hints shared during the cooking process and were given all the recipes we prepared to take home. We have already made a couple of the dishes at home and are now more confident to try our hand at proper Italian cooking at home. I would highly recommend this cooking course and would definitely like to return some time to repeat the experience. Considering the amount of food and wine we consumed and the lovely accommodation this course is really good value for money. The whole experience was just superb.
