Learn the art of Slow Cooking, Italian food, and culture, at a farmhouse cooking class at il Fontanaro.
The wonderful part of Italian farmhouse cooking relies on the fact that is made with fresh and genuine ingredients, you can recreate traditional Italian cuisine in the comfort of your own home even without a view of the Umbrian hills.
In an atmosphere which is design to mirror the old Tuscan and Umbrian houses, you can go learning the basics of the real Mediterranean cucine.
Lucia’s and Alina’s (the professional Sommelier) warm personality and relaxed family teaching style will make you feel comfortable and fully capable of producing some of the traditional Italian dishes. We will have a unique olive oil experience at our olive tasting. Than at our Umbria cooking class you will really learn how to make pasta with blind eyes!
This is your country living cooking experience.
Even complete novices can learn the skills and techniques required to prepare classic farmhouse cooking meals in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. The emphasis is “hands-on” learning.
Lucia will help you unravel the mystery of selecting the finest, freshest ingredients available from the Fontanaro’s vegetable garden.
With this knowledge of ingredients, you will make Italian meals such as soups, assorted “pasta”, “risotto”, various vegetable dishes and many delicious desserts including apple strudel and Umbrian biscotti…without forgetting our excellent meat from Chianina, and various ham also from Cinta senese.
Below is a typical Umbrian meal that we might create here at Fontanaro using our organic produce, fresh from the garden. If you like we can send you our recipes made in the local tradition and I am happy to share them with you!
