Cucinapalooza Tour

March 25 - 31, 2017 (SOLD OUT)

The Ultimate Cul-Toursim Experience

In the spring, we operate cooking tours targeted at cooks of all levels who are interested not just in learning a few Umbrian recipes, but who wish to completely immerse themselves in la cucina umbra. Spend full days with some of the area’s best chefs, being schooled in the culinary traditions and history of Umbria, getting to understand and appreciate its special ingredients and thinking like an Umbrian cook. The tour is less of a class than an extended mentorship, each day studying with a different chef with activities designed to encourage conversation, experimentation and a deeper understanding and appreciation of Umbrian food.

Package Includes:
  • 6 nights at the private villa La Fattoria del Gelso
  • Guests collaborate and compete to create delicious menus
  • Learn to create amazing foods through workshops on ravioli, pizza, sausage, gelato and more
  • Foraging in the Umbrian countryside for fresh ingredients
  • Visits to local markets, bakeries and more
  • Winery visits, tours of vineyards and cantinas and a private lunch with owner's family
  • Insider's visit to a master butcher
Per Person (up to 8 participants)
