This was an amazing experience with Ilde and Mark. It felt like spending time with friends (while learning from Ilde's great skills and enjoying later a magnificent meal). Definitely recommend.

We met as strangers and left as friends. Ilde and Mark were so welcoming and enjoyable that we lost track of time. We can’t wait to see them again and cook another amazing meal together.

Ilde and Mark invited us into their lovely home, the atmosphere felt like meeting up with friends for a casual dinner and lots of stimulating conversation. We loved learning from and talking to Ilde, she showed us that you don’t need years of experience or fancy equipment to make some delicious fresh pasta. The dishes were simple with good ingredients. We are now ready to impress our friends and family back home with a meal of home made pasta! Thanks again for welcoming us into your home and becoming our friends!

From the moment you pull up to Ilde and Mark's residence, you feel as if you have become part of the Umbria culture. Ilde, Mark and their two cats greet you with warm smiles, an open kitchen and a willingness to share their varied experiences and knowledge. Fresh from the garden vegetables and herbs go into preparing the sauces as you learn to make, shape and cook the pastas. Ilde explains why certain things are used and the cleanest, freshest way to prepare. After a wonderful lunch, that you helped prepare, you leave with the knowledge and ability to fix it in your own kitchen. Four hours of laughter, enjoyment and creativity.

Both Ilde and Mark were excellent hosts. Ilde's passion for cooking was very obvious and she shared her love of pasta making with us. Mark was also warm and welcoming and he gave us several excellent ideas of places to visit while we were in Perugia. They opened their home to us and we both felt it was a very unique experience that we could not have gotten in other cooking experiences, and believe me I've tried several. The meal was also very, very good.
