It is so much more than a cooking school! It was an all inclusive trip, everything was taken care of!! Sightseeing, transportation, lodgings, and nourishment were all provided. It was a well organized week; hats off to Chefs Gerri and Jack. Highly recommend the experience.
A visit to the Cucina della Terra is a visit to the culinary delights and culture of Umbria and Tuscany! Chefs Gerri and Jack expertly guided our preparation of incredibly delicious Italian dishes: home made pasta and ragu sauces, wood grilled meats, sauted fish, risotto, frittatas and roasts which we feasted on at a beautiful table along with wonderful wine. Chefs Gerri and Jack shared their expertise with patience and sensitivity, accommodating our energy levels, cooking fears and food preferences -- even developing a separate menu for the vegetarian among us! That was our evenings! During our mornings, Jack or Gerri would accompany us to the area's beautiful Hill Towns -- where we saw the piazzas and churches, met local artists and artisans, sipped cappuccino and shopped, shopped, shopped for ceramics, linens and leathers. Our afternoons provided us a respite at the pool of the beautiful Roometorium where Rita served us a delightful breakfast. All in all, this visit was a treasure - I brought home wonderful memories, a packet full of delicious recipes to make for my friends and family and significantly improved cooking skills. Well done Chefs, well done!
Have been to Italy five times, but this experience was spent amongst the people of Umbria. The Cucina della Terra run by experienced Chefs Gerri and Jack was unique unto itself. We were driven by van to surrounding Umbrian/Tuscany towns and given a full tour throughout the day. Than picked up again and driven to the home of the chefs and taught wonderful recipes of the region made with all the local products. We then sat at an exquisite table setting and feasted on what we created, and of course, the proper, paired wine. This was an all inclusive expense including lodging at a Agri Tourismo which was another wonderful feature. Highly recommend this Italian vacation.
