My wife Veronica and I had the absolute pleasure of cooking dinner side by side with Jodi. Who would of thought we could be involved in creating a truly world class meal in the comfort of Jodi's Italian Villa with breathtaking views. Jodi was totally prepared to make this evening unforgetable and really delivered. The leftovers she packed for us... More

If you enjoy private dining with a spectacular view and the opportunity to learn a little bit about cooking, then I highly recommend this dining experience. Jodi is a terrific teacher, cook and hostess and our group (a business get-together) had a wonderful time. And the food was every bit as good as you will find in area restaurants -... More

I have been to a number of cooking classes while on vacation and rarely go back to their menus. Often ingredients are difficult to find or they are over the top in an effort to do something no one else has done. Jodi made a meal for a Saturday evening dinner party or family Sunday supper. It is doable for... More

My family and I spent the night cooking with Jodi for Mom's 70th birthday. We all had a wonderful evening. The cooking instruction was entertaining and informative and the food was delicious! Jodi had so many helpful and clever hints regarding cooking and preparing meals for the novice chef to someone who knows their way around the kitchen. The setting... More

Our group of 8 bonded as a corporate team through hands-on cooking of elegant dishes, exploration of new ingredients, and good old fashioned clinking of wine glasses over the meal we prepared together. High performing teams are built on a foundation of trust and friendship. Through measuring, mixing, showing a little vulnerability in learning new things, and lots of laughs... More
