Why organize cooking classes specializing in typical Umbrian and Tuscan recipes?

Italy in general, but mostly the central part of the country, has always been characterised by the rich variety and peculiarity of its recipes. Pairing food with good wine, respecting traditions by sourcing quality ingredients have always characterised the “Mediterranean diet”: an international reference point in terms of quality and tastefulness of the final product.

Our valley and Cortona are undoubtedly a specific example of all of this; in that sense the following products need to be mentioned: the famous Chianina beef, ancient grains used to produce a special flour, agricultural produce coming from many organic farms, cold cuts prepared according to old traditions by using the meat of free-range animals.

Agriturismo Rocca di Pierle, set in the untouched Pierle valley, has always embraced this philosophy; in the last few years, thanks to Silvia’s research and specialization, our cooking classes are cause for satisfaction and gratification for many guests who choose us to have this experience.

The “interactive” Cooking Classes service at Rocca di Pierle, suitable for minimum 2 people (other people who wants to enjoy only the final meal will pay a different amount) will be available across lunch time or dinner time (after checking availability of the cook) in the new large outside panoramic kitchen or in the Cambusa room just in case of bad weather conditions, with Silvia and Sheila.

  1. First Option – Standard Cooking Classes: an interactive lesson (you work together with the Cook, who have sanitary licenses and permissions to do this service of course), including the preparation of a complete 3 courses menu (normally 2 first courses and one dessert) it takes about 3 hours, which includes the food cost, kitchen apron and our cookbook.
  2. Second Option –  Deluxe Cooking classes: after the “standard” course we will prepare a table in the panoramic terrace (or in the apartment, depending on the weather condition) and will offer such as a restaurant service serving the food that you prepared and also checking how to cook the food, includes also one bottle of Tuscan wine to join together.

The recipes we propose range from typical Tuscan and Umbrian dishes to traditional Italian food; the thing that all these dishes have in common is the accurate research of quality ingredients, mostly farm-to-table products, and the respect of local culinary traditions.

Whether you are with your partner or in small groups, don’t miss the chance to share an experience that will be an unforgettable memory of your vacation.
