The traditional Le Marche cooking classes are designed for small groups and families.
The cooking lessons or courses are led by a local chef who will immerse you in a world of typically Italian flavours, but specific to the region.
The overall aim is to demonstrate to all participants how to embrace simple regional cooking techniques to try back home.
Each lesson lasts 4 to 5 hours and can even be held in your own holiday villa or home in Le Marche.
Before the course you will accompany the chef to a local farm or family shop where you will purchase the ingredients needed for your lesson and also to get close to local daily life.
Each lesson costs €65 per person and includes:
• Cooking class ( 2 local recipes )
• Wine tasting
• Lunch or dinner
• Special gift
