We will meet at the restaurant, the Chef will be waiting for us for the cooking lesson. After sanitizing our hands we will get our aprons on and introductions with the chef will start.
Prosecco will be offered while the chef will introduce the Italian cusine, the chef will introduce everyone to kitchen safety guidelines and the use of cooking utensils.
It will then be time to cook! We will start with the preparation of the classical Tiramisù. During the preparation of the desert cooking lore and local stories will be shared with everyone.
Once done with the desert the Bruschetta will be prepared according to the Umbrian traditional recipe this way our meal will have a fresh and easy starter.
Now it is time for the pasta hands on moment ! The chef will teach you how to make our local traditionaltypes of fresh pasta, the Strangozzi or the Tagliatelle.
Our traditional pasta sauces, the classical Umbrian Ragù and the Putanesca will be taught and prepared together after the pasta making so that later everything is ready for when we will sit down and eat !
It is time to eat ! Our meal will be served on traditional Umbrian ceramics and we will enjoy our meal eating on hand painted ceramic tables, local red wine (Montefalco) or white wine (Grechetto) will be served.

Hello my name is Alex, I work as a tour director in Italy.
I am also a gourmand or a foodie, name it what you wish!
Before starting my career as a guide I worked in a family owned restaurant.
During the years I worked in the restaurant I was lucky that the Chef helped me learn how bring back to life old Umbrian recipes and give them a modern touch in order to reinvent the Umbrian cusine.
Food is a big part of my life and one of my main passions,
my desire is to bring people together and team them up with the chef I've worked throughout my young adulthood.
So that we may teach you easy ways to make fresh pasta, different delicious traditional sauces and how to prepare exquisite deserts while enjoying quality Umbrian wine.

2 Different Wines as Tasting & A Bottle of Wine as a Gift at the end of the experience.
