This was one of the best experiences we had during our time in Florence. Ginny and Fiamma are so warm and friendly , very knowledgeable chefs who taught us so much and the food we prepared was INCREDIBLE! It is one of our favorite meals in Florence. I cannot recommend them enough. From start to finish - it was an amazing experience ! If we are lucky enough to come back to Italy, we will call them right away.

Having Fiamma and Ginny come to my rented villa and cook for (plus teach) us was a highlight of my month in Italy. They made it so much fun to learn how to make pasta...even though I was a little clumsy. They were kind and totally competent. They brought everything necessary with them. I loved learning how to make tiramisu. They made everything seem so easy.

I would not hesitate to have them come back the next time I'm in Italy.

This experience was incredible! Ginny & Fiamma came to our villa in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. We had such a great time with them and the Tuscan Menu was delicious!!! I cannot wait to recreate the recipes at home. Thanks to both of you for making this one of my favorite days of the trip.

Ginny and Fiamma came to our villa in Barberinno. They prepared (and taught our group of six) an amazing 3 course meal. They worked well together and with our group. They worked with food allergies within our group. The meal was fantastic! The evening was a true highlight of our trip!

I have had cooking classes with Ginny and Fiamma 3 times, and have also had them in to cook special dinners in rental apartments in Florence twice - both times for 10 people. I have also taken many other cooking classes in Canada, France, Italy and Chile so I have experience learning local cuisines with others.

I can say without question that Ginny and Fiamma are wonderful. They are informative and provide not only recipes, but techniques that can be used whenever one cooks. Their white wine chicken recipe has become a family and guest favourite and is both flexible and easy to recreate at home. In fact, all of the food I learned to cook with Ginny and Fiamma has been food I can cook at home. This has not been the case with other cooking classes I've taken.

I've gone to the market to shop with them a couple of times and they have given me great information about how to select ingredients and also why they choose the ingredients they do. They are also flexible about what can be made.

Regarding that flexibility - they have coped with a long list of dislikes for the dinners they've cooked and for one class they needed to manage recipes that were gluten free, garlic free and cow's milk protein free. Their attitude is "we can find something that works - don't worry".

They both have professional cooking experience in restaurants and it shows, but I really like the way they educate one about food.

Highly recommended. I would love to cook with them again.

Ciao Shirley, first thing, thanks! Thank you very much! The thing that makes us happiest is knowing that you are cooking our recipes at home! That's our goal! You are one of our most loyal customers and we are honoured by that. We hope to see you again in Florence or Rome (now we cook here too!) just to drink a glass of wine together! Say hello to everyone and, when you need advice and recipes, write to us, it will be a great pleasure to help you (even if you are a great chef!)

1st Fiamma and Ginny are wonderful. They made the experience so very special. The instruction was great, easy to follow and filled me with the desire to do more when i get back home. The food was delicious. I will be making homemade Pasta. Their personalities lit up event. So warm, kind and informative. I hope many people who think about a cooking class take their course. Some of our group retuned in time to just eat, they too loved the meal

Mille grazia Fiamma y Ginny

Ginny & Fiamma came down to our villa south of Florence to give 4 (out of 8) of us a cooking lesson. It was an amazing fun afternoon for everyone, even the ones not cooking!
The ladies were lovely, and the food was AMAZING! We all brought home the recipes back to Australia so we can make them over and over again! We chose the Tuscan menu and it was delicous! Definetly worth it getting these ladies to come and teach us some great cooking techniques and recipes Italian style!!!
After we finished cooking and sat down to eat, Ginny & Fiamma cleaned up the kitchen and served us our food! Great afternoon/night!
I would recommend these ladies to everyone who likes to cook OR just eat amazing food!

Fiamma & Ginny came to our villa just south of Siena to give our family a cooking lesson. We chose the vegetarian menu, and everything was absolutely incredible! They taught us all so much about Italian ingredients, cooking techniques, top brands for dried pasta & sauce, and quite a few tips & tricks we've already been using here in the U.S. They are so lovely & professional, and it was absolutely the highlight of our vacation! We would highly recommend it to anyone traveling who is looking for a hands-on cooking experience - or simply a delicious meal.

We were lucky enough to have found Kitchen Chez Nous before our vacation to Tuscany! We had rented a villa in Greve with our two sons and daughter-in-law and thought it would be fun to have Someone come and teach us Italian cooking..especially since we all love to cook. The kids decided since we were in Italy, learning the sauces choices would be a great place to start. Ginny and Fiamma arrived late afternoon and in no time we became very comfortable with them and the kitchen was filled with wonderful aromas of the sauce ingredients! We all had a chance to participate..I never even knew my son could separate an egg but he looked like a pro working as he put together the Tiramisu. We learned so much about how to cook the four sauces and the Tiramisu but also tricks we could use in all our cooking. When everything was done being prepared, we were instructed to go out to our terrace with an amazing view and we were then served the dishes that we had all prepared. They were FANTASTIC!! And the wine that they brought was wonderful too. We insisted that they join us for desert (yummy) and we talked for a long time as the sun was setting. Ginny and Fiamma were wonderful...we laughed a lot and by end of the lesson and dinner, we had all become friends!! I would highly recommend Kitchen Chez Nous..we had a great time and learned so much!!

One of the best parts of our trip to Rome! My friend and I booked a cooking class with Ginny the Friday we got into the city at 4pm. She arrived with everything we needed to our Airbnb. Market and grocery fresh items, wine, pots & pans, etc. She also provided recommendations for nearby restaurants. Personable, fabulous communicator, couldn’t have asked for more. We LOVED our experience.
