Various options are available:
Cooking break customized for a 2 /3 or 4 day stay, including one or more hands on cooking lessons, an olive oil tasting, a vist to a local winery, and to a local cheese producer. Full details and options sent on request.
One hands on cooking lesson, preparing a delicious four course Italian meal, including making pasta from scratch, the way mamma used to do and other specialties using local seasonal products. Lessons last about 3 hours followed by dinner served with a selection of good wines. The Sabina olive oil, which has won awards, is always introduced during the lessons which are held at La Torretta or at Gusto al Borgo a cooking venue in Casperia.
Costs depend on what is included. Reservations are necessary and minimum number required
