Cooking is culture, conviviality and creativity, and a cooking class is the funniest way to learn about the traditions of the county you are visiting. It is possible to have a private teacher to come to your villa or it is possible to attend a cooking class in a resort in the South of Umbria, near Todi, the Fattoria di Vibio.


At the Fattoria di Vibio, qualified experts will lead you to discover the typical food of Umbria and the cooking classes can be held in a single day or can last up to 3 days, for an unforgettable experience, where fantasy is the best dressing for creating a successful recipe!
