Meet the Maker

From: $89.00

MONTEFALCO, UMBRIA: The town has been actively settled since the times of the Umbri. It has been under the successive domination of the Romans, Lombards, being called Coccorone in the Middle Ages. In 1249 it was sacked by Frederick II, but was soon rebuilt with the modern name. from the 13th century it had been a free commune under the domination of local nobles and merchants, but later, as with many other Umbrian locales, the commune gave way to government by a Signoria — in this case, that of the Trinci from the nearby Foligno (1383–1439). In 1446 it fell under the rule of the Papal States where it remained until the unification of Italy in 1861

MONTEFALCO, UMBRIA: The town has been actively settled since the times of the Umbri. It has been under the successive domination of the Romans, Lombards, being called Coccorone in the Middle Ages. In 1249 it was sacked by Frederick II, but was soon rebuilt with the modern name. from the 13th century it had been a free commune under the domination of local nobles and merchants, but later, as with many other Umbrian locales, the commune gave way to government by a Signoria — in this case, that of the Trinci from the nearby Foligno (1383–1439).

UMBRIAN CUISINE: Pork, boar, truffles and some very special lentils – of all the regions in Italy, Umbria offers some of the best food and drink in the country. Discover the ingredients, dishes and flavors that make this part of central Italy a gastronome’s paradise. It’s small, the only Italian region without a coastline or international border and covered in dense forest and hilly terrain. But Umbria, the ‘green heart’ of Italy, is home to more culinary treasures than many of its larger, more well-traveled neighbors.

What to Expect: Social

Relax and enjoy the company of your fellow Cook Street students.

Your class will be fun and hands-on. Arrive on time and wear comfortable shoes: you’ll want to explore our kitchen and be on your feet much of the night. Please come prepared to enjoy a meal at the end of the class. We’ll serve a charcuterie platter with house-baked bread and a welcome cocktail at the start of class.

Age Requirements

Due to the nature of our kitchens and that cooking is an inherently dangerous activity, Cook Street asks that all participants be over the age of 18.  This is for your own peace of mind as well as for the comfort of our other guests.  The exception to this policy is any of our Kids Class series, which are all-ages.  Wine, Beer, and Cocktail classes require that participants are over the age of 21.
