Sei in: Home / Leisure
In what was once a farm shed and workshop enjoy, upon request, a large kitchen with a cozy common room that overlooks a beautiful courtyard with barbecue facilities. It is an ideal place for dinner with friends or just to enjoy a nice glass of local wine. The swimming pool (6x16m) allows you to relax in the sun, but there is no shortage of more active pursuits: the riding school with an Italian Equestrian Sports Federation-certified instructor, downhill moto cross biking, mountain biking, hiking, bird watching on Lake San Liberato and the airfield for ultralight airplanes.
Cooking Classes at Podere Calledro Farm in Umbria
Our cooking classes are not about achieving 'Haute Cuisine' but rather about rediscovering and enjoying together the traditional peasant dishes of the Umbrian countryside.
Lessons can be organised to suit the time you have available.However, we thoroughly recommend that you dont miss our 'Tasty Weekend'!
Each lesson takes place in a friendly and relaxing environment accompanied by music. Participants will create their dishes together with the chef and it will be an enjoyable and fun experience. Handouts will be given in Italian or English explaining all the recipes and processes.
We offer two special cooking classes. One is called 'The Family' and it caters for parents and children. Another is called 'Learning to eat well while playing' and is aimed specifically at kids. For more information contact Emanuela. Tel: 3389326803 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
