The Kitchen

The kitchen is traditionally very much the heart of Umbrian farmhouses as it’s the room where people work and meet. Apart from the stables it occupied the largest space in old farmhouses and it was there that the women cooked and gathered to chat. Meals were eaten there and long winter evenings were spent huddled in front of the fire.

In the interest of hygiene and practicality the kitchen was divided from the dining room after the refurbishment was completed in the aftermath of the 1997 earthquake. It was completely modernised and fully complies with current health and safety regulations. The great open fire has been preserved in the dining room and it is a favourite haunt for guests who gather around it to talk about old traditions, Umbrian arts and crafts and the local cuisine.

The food at Casa del Vento is traditional Umbrian country fare, though some of the dishes have a modern twist. Here are a few recipes for you to try out:
