My husband and I had a great day cooking with Jennifer. She was thoroughly prepared, well informed, used a great pace and the food was delicious. We made gnocchi, zucchini flowers, a yummy crostata and cooked Italian sausages with grapes. the recipes were provided. All in all an excellent experience in a beautiful Palazzo setting.

Each of my daughters and I took a cooking class from Jennifer and it was an amazing experience. My girls are 8 and 11 years old and Jennifer was happy to have them take the classes with me. Jennifer is a wealth of knowledge and taught us so much about traditional Umbrian dishes and cooking in general. The menus were... More

My husband and I shared our anniversary in Italy (June 2014) and this was one of our day events. What a treat! We enjoyed the horseback riding with Jennifer which enabled us to get up close and personal with the countryside. Such a beautiful location! We then joined the other guests for the winery tour given by her husband, Frederico,... More

This was my fourth visit to Italy and, thanks to Jennifer, the best and most immersive. I gave her a rough idea of what my mom and I wanted to do and she planned 4 great days of cooking classes, picnicking, local dining, olive pressing tour, hiking and biking - and that's just a few of the things she can...

My husband and I did a private cooking class with Jennifer in September. Actually 'class' is the wrong word... 'day' is better. We made 5 different dishes from scratch, and learned so much about local food history and ingredients as we did. Jennifer very capably figured out how to ensure we both had a wonderful and full experience, when one... More

We loved our day with Jennifer. In fact, it was the best of our trip in Umbria. We really enjoyed visiting the flour mill and bakery and then the cooking lesson and lunch and truffle hunting at a local farm. We learned so much, had lots of fun and enjoyed delicious food too! We would recommend Jennifer highly!

Jennifer is fantastic. Food was great and the wine exceptional. Definitely plan to head back. We had a long afternoon meal, after a tour of the vineyards. Very kid friendly. I plan to buy several cases before we leave Italy. Especially the reds. Thanks for a perfect afternoon.

My family and I enjoyed Jennifer's wonderful Umbrian cooking when she made dinner for us. We also had her back to do a cooking class for myself, my kids and my mother in law. And despite the fact that we are pretty decent cooks ourselves, we learned alot from Jennifer. It is also fun to try new foods and see... More
