perCorsi culinari celebrates local food and the people who grow and prepare it
Our name in Italian has a double meaning – “course” and “path” – summing up the twofold aspect of our gastronomic experience: a cooking course but also an educational path into the best Italian food excellence.
PerCorsi culinari offers classes, complete with an interpreter, for international participants who are interested in Italian culture and cooking. During the cooking lessons, you will work with a group of talented local chefs who will provide demonstrations and hands-on training as well as share their secrets, their passion, and their love of good food with you. Through our classes, perCorsi culinary invites you to share our community values of sharing meals together and the necessity of wholesome food in our life.
Most of our recipes are secrets passed down from one generation to the next. Our goal is to encourage the rescue and proliferation of traditional heirloom foods and to awaken your senses to authentic flavors.
The booking and reservation management of international reservations for perCorsi culinari is handled by PuntoViaggio s.n.c Tour Operator which is based in Italy.

If you want to learn about authentic Italian food, I suggest you to take a course at perCorsi culinari. Their philosophy of cooking is simple, genuine, and filled with love. Five stars!
A group of us just spent most of the past week at PerCorsi. We appreciated their attention to detail and willingness to do whatever they could to make our trip unforgettable. The accommodations were 5 star. Every meal was fit for the biggest eaters made from fresh ingredients and tasted incredible. The views from the villa are spectacular. Easily the best trip of my life. Very hard to leave. They become like family. My highest recommendation.
I’ve attended PerCorsi twice and I am SO excited to be returning again next week with my husband! This is truly a 5 star experience and each visit brings wonderful experiences, new friendships, fabulous memories and at least 5 lbs. of extra weight. The staff are wonderfully attentive, accommodating, knowledgable and dedicated to making your visit unforgettable while introducing visitors to the beauty of the Piedmonte and Langhe wines, cuisine and culture. Don’t think twice! Go! As soon as you can!
