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.

On our recent trip to Umbria we were lucky to join Jennifer on her Farm to Table Tour. We spent the day exploring the valley with her. We were lucky to stop at Granarium, where the motto is "Bread at 0 kilometers!" It was wonderful to experience the modern food movement first hand. Their bread and cookies were wonderful. We...

The Farm to Table tour was a fun group activity. We recommend doing this in truffle season as the "truffle hunt" was a highlight. Observing the pasta-making and ricotta-making was so interesting and the farm meal and setting was fabulous Umbrian experience.

Jennifer was recommended to me by my villa owner and I experienced the culinary delights of a master chef.To cook is a skill but be proficient in imparting this knowledge to other people is the pinnacle of the profession.I had a wonderful day learning from Jen. and when i return next year i will be booking up for another course.

My husband, daughter and I had a lovely time with Jennifer and her husband in Umbria. We started the day with a tour of an artisanal chocolate plant. Then we moved on to the Terre Margaritelli vineyard and enjoyed a tour, tasting and fabulous lunch. It was everything we had hoped. Highly recommend!
