cooking classes


At Palazzo Terranova we have a passion for hospitality and cooking that is made to share. Come and experience the very best of Umbrian living with our Cooking Classes, special weekends and short breaks.

The Terranova Kitchen is open all year round to guests for individual or group tuition from our Chef. Whatever your culinary ability or interests we are happy to customize classes to your needs and share our love of Italian cuisine with you.

The cooking style of our Chef is Umbrian and Mediterranean, fresh and genuine. Born in the area, he has travelled many years abroad and has recently returned home. He creates dishes drawing from the Umbrian traditions but with a modern twist. Many ingredients come from the Terranova gardens, so all are organic and seasonal, producing a robust taste that lingers in the mouth.

The courses are available anytime during your stay and can be arranged for individuals or groups in English or Italian. We have the following suggestions for courses:

  • Secrets of the Italian Kitchen
  • Home-made bread and pasta
  • Highlights of The Umbrian Kitchen (seasonal dishes)
  • Wood fired pizza and focaccia (with create your own)
  • Traditional Desserts
  • Everything Chocolate!

After your cooking class you will have a lunch or a dinner tasting the dishes you have prepared earlier. Included in the course is a linen apron made in Anghiari and a recipe book.
