Umbrian Cooking Class and Lunch
Cooking classes are held in a restored 17th century villa in the small village of Cannara, located in the heart of Umbria between Asissi and Spello or in guest home/villa. They are based around the best local ingredients in season, and includes making antipasto (appetizer), primo (soup or pasta), secondo (main course), and dolce (dessert) followed by a lunch (eating what we just made, of course!)
