Discover the secrets of umbrian cuisine: our cooking classes

Welcome to our agricultural farm, a place where the Umbrian culinary tradition comes to life through authentic and engaging experiences. If you are passionate about cooking and wish to immerse yourself in the local gastronomic culture, our cooking classes are the perfect opportunity to discover and learn the secrets of typical Umbrian dishes.

Our cooking classes are designed to offer you a unique and unforgettable experience, guided by the passion and expertise of our family, who have been dedicated to agriculture and the enhancement of local traditions for generations. During the course, you will have the opportunity to learn how to prepare two Umbrian specialties: umbricelli and torta al testo.

Umbricelli: Handmade Fresh Pasta

Umbricelli is a fresh pasta typical of the Umbrian tradition, characterized by its long, thick shape, similar to large spaghetti. Made with just a few simple ingredients – flour, water, and a pinch of salt – umbricelli represent the essence of rustic Umbrian cuisine. During our course, we will guide you step by step in the preparation of this delicious pasta, from working the dough to forming the characteristic thick strands by hand. You will discover the tricks to achieving the right consistency and perfect cooking, and learn how to season them with simple and flavorful sauces that enhance the genuine taste of homemade pasta.

Torta al Testo: The Typical Umbrian Bread

Torta al testo is a traditional Umbrian flatbread that gets its name from the "testo," a refractory stone on which it is cooked. This bread, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, is ideal to be filled with cold cuts, cheeses, and vegetables, or enjoyed alone as an accompaniment. In our course, we will show you how to prepare the perfect dough and how to cook the torta al testo on the stone, achieving that authentic flavor that only tradition can offer.

An Immersive and Convivial Experience

Our cooking classes are more than just a lesson: they are an opportunity to live an immersive experience in the Umbrian culture, sharing moments of conviviality and discovery. Each participant will have the chance to get hands-on and learn the techniques directly from our family, who have passed down these recipes for generations.

At the end of the course, we will gather around the table to taste the dishes we have prepared, accompanied by a good glass of local wine. It will be a moment of sharing and celebration, where you can appreciate the fruits of your labor and discover the authentic flavors of our land.
