What you can expect
Meet Adler, a special chef that made twenty-year research to discover the cooking tradition of the Orvieto area. Adler cuisine comes from patient research for Orvieto recipes, also coming from the surrounding villages. These old and slow recipes were destined to disappear because of our new fast society, that is why this restaurant has been trying to preserve them until today.
Learn the secrets of the ricette della nonna and track back to Umbrian origins, with this exclusive hands-on experience. The menu can slightly vary according to the seasons and the product's availability, that is a guarantee for always finding fresh products and ingredients.
You can choose between one of these options (please communicate in advance your cooking skills to customize the experience):
- Fresh pasta (umbrichelli and picchi): making an egg pasta/typical water pasta dough with traditional rustic sauce. Wine-tasting.
- Dough: various techniques to make dough for bread, pizza, and other bases. Wine-tasting.
- Cheeses: how to prepare cheese from the fresh sheep milk, followed by local products tasting paired with fine wine (not available during summertime).
Choose your favorite recipes, get hands-on help and once the work is completed, sit down and enjoy the meal with your friends and family!
