At Calagrana agriturismo in Umbria we offer you the opportunity to delve into Chef Albertoís mind, and take a piece of the Umbrian cuisine home with you. Our cookery classes are extremely popular, though they still maintain their intimate status in order to provide you with a good understanding of Umbrian cuisine. Chef Alberto will guide you through all the stages to create a three course meal which, once prepared and cooked, you and your class mates will enjoy on the terrace with perhaps a glass of wine or two. Upon your departure you will be provided with a copy of the recipes and notes from your day in the kitchen.
The skills you learn will enable you to take home the warm flavours of Umbria, giving you the confidence to re-create them in your kitchen, amazing friends and family. During the day you will learn to make fresh pasta and rest assured that you will never want to eat shop bought pasta again! With three basic ingredients, elbow grease and a little time on a rainy day you will stock your freezers with the most amazing pasta, perfect for dinner.
After your first cookery class the fun and learning donít stop there! In the first class our aim is to teach you recipes, techniques and methods that are the basics of cooking and which you can apply to a lot of your future dishes. However if you wish to come back there is always so much more to learn. Once you have done our first class, then the contents of the next class is entirely up to you. Should you fancy making breads and risottos for the day then let us know; or perhaps main courses and deserts, the choice is yours.
Our classes run from Tuesdays through to Thursdays as on Friday we bake for the small market in Umbertide (the Saturday one), where you can buy our goodies and our bread. The classes are open to all, not just the guests at the Agriturismo! Contact Calagrana for further information!
