I had been reading about Jodi's class for a couple of years and actually planned my vacation around this experience and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed assisting in the preparation of the meal and look forward to using some of the recipes in my restaurant. Such a beautiful home, gorgeous view and wonderful hospitality!

First of all, Chef Jody contacts you ahead of time to see what you really are interested in. My daughter and I really enjoyed her foodie tour, most especially the tour of the Farmers market on Saturday in Litte Italy.
