This March 17-27, join us for a ten day cooking workshop lead by food photographer, writer, and visual artist, Peter Barrett.

The tour will consist of a sojourn at the Castle where guests will immerse themselves in the culinary culture of Italy’s Umbria region. Our workshop will be the castle’s kitchen, run by native Umbrian, Romana Ciubini, where, under her tutelage, the group will learn the secrets of bread gnocchi, eggless pasta, and torta al testo among a host of other local dishes.

The tour will also include explorative day-trips into the greater Umbrian countryside, where guests and hosts will visit important regional sites of culture and industry, including local winemakers, olive orchards, salumerie, and more.

The trip is limited to twelve people. The fee of $3,500 per person will cover everything, including accommodations in our 15th century castle, and lunch and dinner every day. Air travel to Rome (and any connecting flights you require) will not be included.
