We have spent a long time devising the cookery courses, to offer guests the opportunity to experience the feel of a real Italian kitchen, learning to prepare recipes that have been handed down over generations, which can be combined with a visit to a typical, bustling, Umbrian market plus an excursion to search for the highly prized “Tartufo”, which is a speciality of our region, the Alta Valle Tevere.

Half day cooking class
If the idea of making delicious fresh pasta appeals, why not consider the afternoon cookery class.

Find out how to make wafer thin pasta for ravioli filled with fresh ricotta and spinach or tagliatelle with different sauces.

One day cooking course
Take a morning trip to the local market of Cittá di Castello where you can savour the atmosphere of a thriving market town and buy the ingredients and vegetables needed for the afternoon course. In the afternoon, learn the art of making pasta. A hands-on experience making ravioli, tagliatelle or cappelletti which you can sample at dinner later with the addition of antipasto and dessert and to include wine, coffee and liqueur …

Gourmet Trip
An morning excursion to hunt for truffles, the highly prized delicacy of this region can be arranged.

Visit a Truffle (Tartufo) farm to find out how this regional delicacy is used in Umbrian cuisine, followed by a six course gourmet lunch based entirely on truffles!

Extend your stay at La Preghiera and enjoy some of our “add on” excursions. Visit a frantoio to see olive oil being made, a Vin Santo museum, a Pecorino cheese farm or try wine tasting at a local cantina!

Alternatively, indulge in some relaxation with a visit to the nearby thermal spa or have a beauty treatment at La Preghiera
