Roe "Let's Cook in Umbria gets a five star recommendation from me. I took a blind friend from the UK with me and we had a great time. Rafaela is an amazing cook and was so accomodating of food allergies we both had. The location is fantastic, just a short taxi to Perugia. I'd love to think I'd be back. I'm enjoying trying again all the gorgeous recipes we were shown. A very hands on course with full re..."

    Our Let's Cook in Umbria tour more than exceeded our expectations. Raffaella was an exceptional host and shared her life experiences making it more personable. She tailored the meals and the tours to her guests requests. For example, I mentioned to her at our first cooking class that my husband says everything is better when made with sausage. At our cooking class the next day she used local Umbria sausage in the Ragu. The accommodations were comfortable and the setting looking out our window at the hills in the distance was beautiful. We thought the tours were very nice and appreciated the time in the afternoon before the tours to relax or siesta before we ventured out in a comfortable van with our driver Paulo. We enjoyed the company of Olivia and Pepe and the music coming from Raffaella's home in the evening was a real treat.

    Raffaella was the most caring, organized, warm and knowledgeable "guide" to our introduction to Italian cooking...Umbrian style! Every day was a fun adventure...mornings cooking in her home, truly intimate and authentic in every way...using the olive oil produced right there on the farm, drinking her wine, getting our hands in pasta...and turning out beautiful meals that, with her orchestration, were truly wonderful in every way. Although we had only beautiful, tasty food everywhere we went in Italy, the meals we cooked with Raffaella on the farm were the absolute best we had! And I have been able to reproduce many of the recipes since I have returned home...even with the "help" of my 3-year-old grandson, they have all turned out well. The afternoons spent exploring some of the attractions of Umbria were a treasure in themselves...and sunset in Assisi was a magical experience. I am so happy and grateful I chose to celebrate my "big-zero" birthday at La Volpe E L'Uva, with "Let's Cook in Umbria!!!"

    Superb experience!!! Rafaella was an amazing teacher, not only showing us how to cook wonderful dishes, but also sharing the histories of the foods and region, and family stories. The class was very hands-on, so I really felt I learned a lot through actual practice. All of the recipes were provided to take home and re-create (though not as fun as being with Rafaella). Everything was very well organized, so that we cooked four courses through the course of the morning and then could sit down and eat the results with a bottle of her farm's wine. The farmhouse was lovely and charming, very welcoming and beautiful views. The apartment was nice, good accommodations and everything there that we needed. Rafaella did an excellent job arranging the afternoon tours, each day was different and very interesting. We had a great driver Paolo, and excellent helpers Francesca's, all appreciated. All was excellent, from the cooking to the tours and accommodations, many many thanks to our wonderful host and teacher Rafaella! I highly recommend this tour, would love to go back sometime.

    I spent one of the best weeks of my life on La volpe e l'uva. Let's Cook in Umbria is a magical cooking school on an idyllic farm just outside Perugia. Your hostess Raffaella will introduce you to regional cooking in her own kitchen and the results are delicious. We had time to tour the immediate region and the accommodation was excellent.

    My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Raffaella's farmhouse outside of Perugia. We came for the program she was offering during the Black Truffle Festival in February. We spent three mornings cooking a four course lunch for ourselves using many of her family's recipes. Raffaella was a passionate and informative instructor. All of our lunches were delicious. The afternoons were spent visiting a vineyard, 2 small villages, truffle hunting and visiting Norcia for the Winter Truffle festival. In the evenings you could either cook something in your apartment or a driver that is provided to you could drop you off in Perugia for dinner. It was an unforgettable trip. I would highly recommend visiting the farmhouse. Visited February 2016

    Let's Cook Umbria! What a fantastic gastronomic experience. Several in our group were celebrating milestone birthdays.This trip could not have been a better way to honor our special days. Raffaella made each of us feel welcome and at home. Each day was filled with a wonderful cooking experience, a delicious meal and then an informative tour introducing us to Italian culture and art. All of us have shared our new recipes with family and friends! Four months later we are still talking about our wonderful experience. Raffaella's care and concern, her beautiful home, and exciting cooking experience leave a lasting impression.

    Beautiful setting tucked away near Perugia. I stayed for 4 nights on Raffaella's farm. I received a very warm welcome and felt like family the entire time I was there. Each day I cooked with Raffaella and had an area excursion with a driver and a guide (as needed) for the other half of the day: L'Infiorata in Spello, Deruta for a pottery tour, a chocolate factory tour, and truffle hunting! And oh yes, the food we prepared was delicious. I wish I could do it all again.
