Let's cook in Umbria! Since 2005 we have been offering an authentic cooking experience, set in a real farmhouse located in the heart of Italy.
Raffaella is the owner of the farmhouse La Volpe e l'uva and the organizer of the programs of Let's Cook in Umbria. She has been living there since 1996, with her husband who is a musician, and their two children. The idea of this project was born thanks to Raffaella's love for the region of Umbria, its products, and traditions. Her goal is to offer an unforgettable holiday in central Italy that combines Italian food, art, and local culture, a holiday during which people can live in a real farmhouse surrounded by Umbrian hills and discover the secrets of traditional cooking.
A special role in Raffaella's cooking programs is played by her mother-in-law, Alberta; she manages the agricultural aspect of the farm, she produces an excellent red wine, extra virgin olive oil, and she has a large vegetable garden where she grows the vegetables that you will use in your cooking classes. She organizes the work during the olive harvest package.
She was born and raised in the hill town of Perugia, in central Italy. Her passion for cooking is rooted in the Italian and Mediterranean tradition of cooking together with her family in their home. After finishing her study of economy, she had a short experience in Zambia as an economist, but she has never abandoned her passion for cooking. When she came back to Italy, she worked in several restaurants, and after the birth of her son, she decided that the best way to share her passion for Italian cooking was through cooking classes and catering.
