We recently had the pleasure of Jennifer's company at our holiday villa in Umbria. We had a wonderful day, creating some delicious Umbrian dishes, drinking the local wine and hearing many insights into the Umbrian way. Jennifer was the ultimate professional, warm and engaging. It was prefect having the cooking class at our villa as we then sat down to... More

We spent 9 days in Umbria and were eager to do something a bit "different" to experience the land and its people better, but weren't sure how our two young boys (2, 6) would cope with a full day out on the farm. In retrospect, the day on the farm with Jennifer and her hosts was certainly a (if not... More

After a year a planning, our 45th wedding Anniversary trip to Italy came to fruition. We spent a week in paradise at L'Antica Vertreria in Piegaro with our children and Grandchildren. After the recommendation of the owner, we contacted Jennifer from Canada to help us with our special evening. Communication from Canada to Italy went smoothly. The menu was chosen... More

We organized a dinner at our villa and dealing with Jennifer from start to finish was an absolute pleasure - everything went smoothly and she was super flexible with our needs. The food was absolutely delicious....and more than enough of it and the wines were superb! And we had a spotless kitchen afterwards, allowing us to fully relax and enjoy... More

Jennifer came to our apartment with everything needed to prepare a three course Italian dinner for the eight of us. We chatted with her while she worked, intriguing us with her preparations. We learned about making the appetizers as she prepared them, and also about living in Italy as a chef formerly from USA. When it came time to eat,... More

Our cooking class with Jennifer was the best part of our week in Umbria. She taught us how to make gnocchi, stuffed squash blossoms, saltimbocca and ricotta tart. She brought all the ingredients, was well organized and of course spoke perfect English as she is American. We were a rowdy group, but she was able to keep us focused and... More

I am a Creative Cooking teacher in a high school near Seattle, WA. It was a delightful experience to learn several new recipes while watching Jennifer put final preparations on a meal that she served to our group of 8. She accommodated our special dietary requirements and served a spectacular selection of foods that were in season and straight from... More

while staying at the wonderful Villa La Dolce Vita in Umbria we hired Jennifer to come and cook for us one evening. What a special treat! The food was incredibly fresh, all made with local ingredients and absolutely scumptious. We had four guest staying with us at the time, all of whom second our assessment. We selected the menu and...

In May we were part of a group that stayed in a villa in Piegaro, Umbria, Italy. Jennifer was recommended by the owner and came to the villa and prepared "wonderful" dinners for us on two occasions. Prior to the second dinner she gave a cooking lesson to several of our companions. We left the menus up to Jennifer and... More

Jennifer is an incredibly creative chef utilising local produce and preparing the best local and seasonal ingredients. The attention to detail was faultless, the food was exquisitely prepared and presented and Jennifer was overly generous in sharing recipes and explaining lesser known foods.
