The Saveur 100 mag. Chefs’ Edition

This Cooking Class is one of "the 100 must-try"

Wine Spectator Top 100 wine tasting

Wine Enthusiast European Winery of 2012

“The Saveur 100: Chefs’ Edition”: ARNALDO CAPRAI’s COOKING CLASS in Umbria is one of the 100 must-try things.

Easy show-cooking-class by Chef Salvatore Denaro, accompanied by Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 “Grecante”.

Libidinous recipes mixing of Sicily with Umbria are famous. Plus TRUFFLE…

OK, St. Francis was born here, but you don’t have to be ascetic like him, on the contrary…

This place it’s an extraordinary “hidden gem”, you have to be a real expert to find it… or one of our guest!

You’ll learn about a kind of Italian cuisine that is very rare, but so high quality to be selected by Saveur magazine as one of the 100 things you must try

In addition to that Arnaldo Caprai winery is the Wine Enthusiast’s European Winery of 2012… and Wine Spectator Top 100 with an astonishing white wine…

Concreteness, authenticity & simplicity!

Umbria region is a lot less famous if compared with its neighboring region Tuscany, but…

Umbria has maintained many medieval traditions in wine and food, it is permeated with a widespread mystical sprit due to the presence of St. Francis, it has remained absolutely authentic and traditional, without conceding anything to contamination and “dramas” for tourists…

IMPORTANT: this ON SITE experience lasts about 4-5 (four-five) hours and STARTS at 10.00 a.m.

Number of People:
Min 6 (SIX) Max 8 (eight)

Please note: PRIVATE tour, so you’ll never be mixed with other people.
