Your menu

    As per tradition in my family and in all Umbre families on Christmas Day we eat Tortellini. The preparation of Tortellini is a convivial ritual, where the whole family gathers around the table , and where anecdotes are told and utensils handed down through generations are used. Absolutely tortellini are eaten in a good meat broth and the boiled meat is accompanied by tasty sauces. The Christmas atmosphere makes this moment more magical , especially if to welcome you there will be a bruschetta cooked on the fireplace and seasoned with our extra virgin olive oil produced from the olives of our olive grove that surrounds the house. You will return to your homes with the memory of Christmas in Assisi.

    We are so thankful to Sara and Angelo for welcoming us into their beautiful home and providing exceptional hospitality. We were taught how to make Torta al testo, Tagliatelle, and Tiramisu and then we got to feast on these wonderful dishes. What a great experience! The view from their home is spectacular as are the gardens and olive trees. This was absolutely the highlight of our Italy trip so far. We are blessed to have them as friends. If you are coming to Assissi you need to make a stop at Sara and Angelo's home. You will love every minute of it!

    This is a must-do when in the area of Assisi. Sara (and Angelo) welcomed us into their beautiful home and spent time teaching us hands-on to make cheese biscuits, gnocchi, and tiramisu. She even made gluten free accommodations. Then we were treated to a wonderful aperitif and local wine. Their property is breath-taking amongst the garden and olive trees. We truly had the best day and felt like part of the family. Please arrange an unforgettable class and experience with Sara. Time and money well spent.

    Our evening with Sara could not have been better. She and Angelo were gracious hosts, welcoming my husband and I into their beautiful home, patiently teaching me to make strangozzi, torta al testo and tiramisu. It was a fabulous experience and one of the highlights of our ten days in Italy. I highly recommend a class with her. It was an authentic, memorable experience. I only wish we lived closer!

    Sara and her husband Angelo were such wonderful hosts. They welcomed us into their beautiful home where they showed us their land and their olive grove. They spoiled us with great Italian hospitality. We learned how to make some of her signature dishes and we enjoyed dinner together with her and Angelo. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend Sara as an excellent Cesarine host.

    Ottima accoglienza, il piacere di una spontanea accoglienza familiare, gustosi piatti della tradizione umbra, buonissimi gli strangozzi al tartufo, la faraona, la rocciata superba… grazie Sara per averci offerto tutto questo con simpatia e gentilezza ospitandoci nella tua casa immersa nel verde e nella pace della collina di Assisi

    Cesarina from 2021Location: Assisi    Languages: Italian, English, Spanish, French

    "Everyone calls me Sara, short for Cesarina, a name inherited from my paternal grandmother, undisputed queen of the kitchen. Not only was she a model for me, but also my Mamma Liliana, my Aunt Ines, my mother-in-law Nunzia. I have a nice potpourri of regional recipes that characterize me, being born in Lazio, then for love lived in Puglia and for choice landed in Umbria, where we formed family and created our home, nestled in the hills of Assisi. So why not become a real Cesarina. I love cooking in all its facets: sweet, salty, preserved, but above all the pleasure of cooking for my family and my guests."
