During our three week stay in Umbria, Jennifer came to our house to cook two dinners. The first time there was a torrential rain and she had to cross a raging creek via a very rickety, very narrow bridge. No problem for her, she arrived nonplussed and prepared a delicious meal of stuffed zucchini blossoms, fried salvia stuffed with tallegio,... More

Have you ever watched Public Broadcasting shows and said "I wish I could do that" On the Life...Italian Style tour I did "do that." The tour started at a granary where we learned first hand how grain is grained and bread is made the natural, Umbrian way. Then we were off to the farm where we went along with patriarch,... More

This was the best of our five days in Umbria! We visited a granary and learned how they make bread from local wheat. Lovely people and delicious cookies for our Christmas celebration. Then on to a farm where we went truffle hunting--definitely a unique experience. Then the lovely women of this agro-turismo family taught us how they make the local... More

A delightful, unique and educational day in Umbria. We visited a local bakery and mill, then toured a local family run farm which included truffle hunting, learning how to make cheese and roll pasta, and cure meat. This was topped off by a fantastic four course meal of fresh, local fare. It was delicious and different. Jennifer was informative and... More

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
