Guests often tell us the hands-on cooking class they took was the most memorable part of their stay at Rocca di Benano. Our favorite chef Simona offers group classes in her farmhouse about twenty minutes from Benano. The class begins in Simona’s garden, harvesting some of the ingredients comprising dishes on that day’s menu. What’s not to like about spending a morning up to your elbows in flour, rattling pots and pans to make traditional ragu sauce, and whipping the eggs whites for tiramisu, if at the end you get to eat the product? If Simona happens to be booked on the day you choose, we can recommend fantastic cooking classes in Orvieto as well.
