cooking class and enjoying Umbria

Cookery lesson in an agriturismo, truffle hunting and wine tasting
A 4-day gourmet tour

Cooking class, truffle hunting and wine & olive oil tasting

Umbria takes you back in time! This green region with its picturesque towns has remained intact over the centuries. We only mention a few… Assisi, Spello, Montefalco, Perugia, Gubbio, and Orvieto, all with evocative small streets with steps, brightened up by colourful flower boxes and interspersed with squares where the residents meet to exchange the latest news. Walking through these towns you can savour the stately city palaces, old churches decorated with frescoes by famous artists such as Giotto, Cimabue, Benozzo Gozzoli, Simone Martini, and the sudden vistas over the green valleys and surrounding hills covered with olive groves and vineyards.

Assisi

But visiting Umbria is also a culinary tour, involving gourmet meals with special dishes and products typical to the local area: olive oil drizzled on toasted wood-baked bread, cheese boards including the local sheep’s’ milk cheese, platters of cold meats from Norcia, pasta wafting with the aroma of truffles, freshly baked pizza and bread. All of this matches perfectly with glasses of excellent red and white wine, such as the Sagrantino di Montefalco and Grechetto, which are famous all over the world for their quality.

The Umbrian Cookery is rich, healthy, tasteful, and genuine. Aren’t you curious which dishes are served on the table of the Umbrian families? This gourmet package introduces you to dishes from the Umbrian kitchen, such as the ‘bruschetta’, the ‘crostini‘, ‘la torta al testo‘, fresh pasta, truffles, legume dishes, and wild mushrooms
