Cooking holidays in Italy - Country cooking vacation @ Italian Village Vacation

Guests Impressions

"My husband and I began our honeymoon by staying 5 nights at Casa Verde in Castel Cellesi. We loved the whole experience. The house was perfect for our needs with full kitchen, including cooking utensils, 2 bathrooms ans a bedroom with a beautiful view of the valley. Eddie was very friendly, helpful, informative and accessible. He gave us a map and a full explanation of all the nearby sights worth visiting. With our rental car, we visited Viterbo, Orvieto, La Civita, Bolsena and montefiascone. All towns were unique and interesting. The food and wine were incredible. We would highly recommend Castel Cellesi to anyone looking for a relaxing experience that is a little bit off the beaten path."

Country cooking courses

Learn authentic Italian country cooking!

Cooking vacationWe offer you cooking lessons with a difference. In most countries when you go to your local Italian restaurant – the food available bears little resemblance to the food really eaten by the people in their homes in Italy. Even in Italy, when visiting tourist areas you might be offered a sort of international Italian food, again not that which the people eat in their own homes.

We feel that if you are to learn to cook Italian food you should learn to cook the food that the Italians themselves cook and eat at home. An important factor in country cooking, is the use of locally grown ingredients – many people in Castel Cellesi grow their own vegetables and even keep hens to provide fresh eggs daily.

Your stay in Castel Cellesi will not only informative, but fun!

Country CookingYour cooking experience will take place in the homes of the local villagers. You will go to a home and the family will talk to you about their favourite dishes, explain their use of ingredients, how and where they do their shopping and then proceed to cook as you watch and help. You will be free to ask any questions you wish.

Then when the delicious meal has been cooked you will sit down with the family to eat it! Of course you will also be offered wine produced in the village! You will be learning local food traditions and you will be able to return home and honestly say that you have had genuine Italian home cooked food .
