Are you looking for an authentic all-inclusive culinary vacation away from the usual tourist routes and programmed tours and classes?

Welcome to Chef Stefano’s mountain retreat located on Mount Fumaiolo, on the border between Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Montefeltro and Umbria. You'll stay in a private 2 centuries old stone house and visit every morning ancient towns and markets in 4 regions and have your private italian cooking classes every afternoon at home enjoying local wines that you’ll purchase from local small wineries. And always away from the hustle and bustle of the typical tourist areas. And if you won’t feel like cooking the Chef will do it for you!
Chef Stefano will be your host for these all-inclusive multi-day vacations. We offer you to experience the rich art, food, and nature of central Italy: whether it is a market or a historic tour in the nearby ancient villages in Tuscany, Umbria, Romagna and Montefeltro a picnic in the woods where the Tiber River springs or a visit to a local winery or cheese maker, Chef will be your personal escort during these all-inclusive vacations. Cook along with the chef and enjoy the solitude of an authentic mountain chalet experiencing Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany and Umbria like a local.
Chef Stefano will take you on a journey to the places where the traditional Italian dishes were born. He will teach you the culinary secrets of Pellegrino Artusi, the father of modern-day Italian Regional cuisine. Artusi travelled throughout Italy and collected the regional recipes we now enjoy today. You'll work 8 hrs per day side by side in the kitchen of the house you will stay. His focus is on technique so you will be able incorporate what you learn. This is not a "classroom" that is menu driven, but a culinary experience.
