Why We Cook for You
Umbriacooks4u grew out of our longtime friendship, which began in 1974 at the University of Perugia, capital of Italy’s Umbrian Region. We are Nonie, a native New Yorker who finds great joy in entertaining, and Tita, a native of Umbria who loves to cook.
The two of us are certain that what we offer our clients at Umbriacooks4u is unique. We give you a taste of regional Italian cooking from the perspectives and skills of an Italian and an American. And we give you choices: You can take cooking lessons with us and dine on the meal you have prepared; you can let your children take our cooking lessons and join them for a meal later, or you can arrange for the two of us to prepare a meal for you.
Whatever you choose, cooking classes or private dinners, you are sure to enjoy a delicious meal prepared with the freshest and highest quality local ingredients and served with a selection of local wines that complement courses from appetizers through dessert.
Know that you are guaranteed a warm, relaxed and family atmosphere, highlighted by lively conversation.
