Il ghiottone umbro

Ever wished for a good friend with a nice house in a medival umbrian hill town with great views over the rolling landscape.

One who knows the way to all the great local restaurants, the best wine producers and historic sights.

One who enjoys the simplicity, honesty and fantastic taste of the italian kitchen and wine.

One who pays attention to every detail and caters to all your needs.

Well - now you have such a friend - Il Ghiottone Umbro...

News from Todi


We just love the seasons - the fall is taking over from the warm and busy summer. The mornings are foggy, everything is just a little more quite - the wines are fermenting in the cellars and the olive oil is just about to be pressed....the mushrooms from the forest are coming in. The big soup pan is on the stove and all the great fall produce is taking over from the summer's abundance of tomatoes and zucchini.

BIG NEWS......we are moving to Rome - but just for a few days - we are happy to announce our latest cooking course - let's meet in Rome and enjoy the spring and all the amazing produce together.
