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!

Both Jennifer and her husband are very knowledge and lovely people to talk to and to spend time with. We made some amazing dishes, which we... More

Don't miss the opportunity to spend the day with Jennifer if you are anywhere close to Cannara. First stop was a state of the art bakery, where the bread and cookies were delicious, and then up the hill to hunt truffles with the dogs. Next stop was the kitchen to make different cheeses and pasta for our black truffles. Lunch... More

We had an absolutely wonderful experience taking a cooking class from Jennifer! She came to our Villa in Piegaro and we made several things: Gnocchi, Saltimboca, Ricotta Tart just to name a few! The food was amazing! The wine, laughter and friendships made this the "highlight" of our week in Umbria. Jennifer taught us a lot and we enjoyed her... More
