A wonderful experience in the heart of Umbrian countryside. Cooking (and eating) these traditional Umbrian dishes with Tita and Nonnie is a must for anyone visiting the region. Moreover, you can easily try the recipes back home and take a bit of Umbria with you.

The four of us had a fabulous session. We have been to two other Italian cookery classes and this one is by far the best. The food, venue, organisers and the whole session were fabulous!
