Description

Tuscany and Umbria are famous for their exquisite cuisine.

La Rogaia cookery school offers cooking lessons for Umbrian and Tuscan specialties, accompanied by wines from Umbrian and Tuscan cellars and first class extra virgin olive oil. Your ideal vacation if you love Italian food and wine.

Enjoy a week of authentic cooking and fun in Italy in October ...

In the cookery lessons you will prepare four complete dinners from the Antipasto to the Dolce, under the guidance of Ornella, a maestra of Umbrian Cucina casalinga. For her simple but delicious cuisine she prefers fresh products directly from farms, markets and the meadows and woods around La Rogaia.

You will enjoy all the meals accompanied by excellent wines from Umbrian or Tuscan cellars.

Get inspired by Ornella’s mediterranean temperament and original recipes!

One day we will accompany a truffle hunter with his dog to witness how these precious delicacies are found.
We will also visit a producer of Vin Santo, the local sweet wine.
And pr course we will taste the freshly pressed olive oil.

You can extend your stay by another week to participate in the olive harvest and take home your own oil!
