A Taste of Our Cucina

The specially designed kitchen has floor-to-ceiling glass on three sides so you cook as part of the environment. You will be inspired by the natural beauty of olive trees, rosemary and pomegranate bushes, lemon and fig trees and the surrounding hilltops and castles.

Our Approach

La Cucina Sabina combines the best of what can be learned from professional chefs and local cooks, “nonnas” (grandmothers in Italian). We feature local chefs and cooks who specialize in the traditional as well as more contemporary Italian dishes with regional and seasonal dishes, pasta and of course pizza and gelato. We also feature occasional visiting chefs for a unique experience. Our chefs offer well-rounded, easy to follow cooking lessons so that you will leave with specialty dishes that are easy to prepare but sure to impress your friends.

What’s Included

Lodging and meals, including wine, coffee and tea are provided during your stay as well as culinary and cultural excursions. We offer four hands-on lessons.
