I went to Raffa's farm with 5 girlfriends. We had a wonderful time cooking in the morning and exploring and shopping in the afternoon. All of our needs were tended to. We learned to prepare a lot of delicious food that we all felt we could cook on our own once we got home. We had a vegetarian with us,... More

We were very excited when we booked our time at Let's Cook in Umbria, and we weren't disappointed. Rafaella was a very warm, fun and wonderful host, taking us through our cooking lessons, helping with organising transfers, and even giving us some of the farm-produced organic red wine for our room. The cooking classes were very hands on, and we... More

Let's Cook in Umbria, with Raffaella, was one of the highlights of our tour of Umbria. Raffaella is warm, lovely and a great cook and teacher. We went with another couple and had a blast learning to make fresh pasta, eggplant parm, and an exquisite fig crostada. Our husband's were wary of taking a cooking class, but loved it. We... More

My husband and I spent the last day of our 2 week Umbrian vacation doing a cooking class with Raffaella, and it was a perfect way to end our trip. The class was fun and relaxed but informative -- Raffaella is incredibly charming! We have been trying to re-create some of the recipes ever since!

Very recently myself and a friend stayed at Raffaella's farm to have Italian cooking lessons. I can't speak highly enough about the whole experience. We cooked 5 different days, all 4 course meals. Delicious every recipe hoping I can repeat them at home. Raffaella is an excellent teacher, having the ability to keep everyone busy and while learning her techniques... More

With our group of 8, Raffeala was able to spend one on one time with each of us as we prepared a 3 course meal. For me, the highlight was the homemade pasta and sauce with a close second being both the appetizer and the dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and sharing the meal we cooked in the dining... More

I have been to Italy many times and this last time was a celebration of birthdays for my husband and his sister. She and her husband had never been to Italy and I wanted to make sure we had more of the Italian experience than museums and this seemed like a perfect adventure. It was an adventure for a couple...

It took a bit for the Taxi to find the house but I am glad that he did. We were visiting Perugia for the second time and wanted to get more in tune with the Umbrian way of life. This was done in an expert manner. We learned about the food of Umbria, a little about its history and we... More
