My husband and I were looking for something new and different to do on our thirteenth trip to Italy -- and thanks to International Kitchens, we found it : La Cucina Sabina! What a wonderful experience. The villa, with spectacular views, and the updated and spacious kitchen were beautiful. The owners/hosts, Mike DiGirolamo and Giuseppe Micheletta were always with us, making sure that we had and did everything we wanted to do. They really watched over us and made us feel welcome and comfortable. They came on day trips, looked in on us working in the kitchen and enjoyed meals with us -- providing wonderful food and wines. It was more like being a member of their family than a guest at their home. The staff was attentive and always available. The food and the service were outstanding. It was an all around great experience that we will continue to recommend to family and friends. We enjoyed the learning and hands-on cooking lessons, but we also loved the planned day trips with great sights and wonderful restaurants we visited. Thank you for guiding us to La Cucina Sabina. We would love to return.

Trip Details

You will have 4 wonderful hands-on cooking lessons during your culinary vacation, including a special pizza class. Your guide for your Italian cooking lessons will be Chef Barbara, who studied at the Gambero Rosso cooking school and now teaches there; she also has appeared on an Italian cooking show. While you will of course learn the secrets of ‘la cucina romana,’ Roman cuisine, you will also enjoy a special Tuscan cooking class. The cooking classes will take place in the villa’s wonderful teaching kitchen, which boasts individual work stations, multiple cooking tops and ovens, and amazing views of the countryside on three sides so you will feel one with the land whose bounty you will be exploring. The classes will focus on recipes from professional chefs, ‘nonnas’ (grandmas), and special visiting chefs. You will use only the freshest ingredients, including the property’s own DOP-certified olive oil, and will learn to make everything from appetizers and pastas, to meat and fish dishes, to pizzas and desserts.
