For one week in September 2012 I had the pleasure of having Alessandro as my personal chef (well, as part of a group of painters). His food was delectable and fresh and, as I sat down to eat, made me feel as though I had had the pleasure of shopping in the wonderful Italian markets that dot the landscape of Tuscany. I have tried two of the recipes on his app and they are easy to use with clear instructions and relatively simple ingredient lists. Even if I can't get pecorino cheese that is quite as good as that in Tuscany, the finished dishes do transport me back to the hill towns that I enjoy so much. Grazie mille.

While staying in La Casa dei Fiordalisi in Trequanda, Allessandro prepared a number of marvelous dinners for our group. He also conducted a cooking class for us - thoroughly enjoyable, and in addition to learning a LOT, he provided copies of the recipes! This site has several dishes we enjoyed - the asparagus salad, the chicken, the pork roast with apples...Thank you, Chef!

Allessandro prepared meals for us recently in Trequando. He is amazing in the originality of his recipes. He was also fun to work with. I highly recommend him.

His gnocchi is outstanding!
I have met Alessandro, eaten his food and had several cooking lessons from him. He is engaging, knowledgeable and very professional. His recipes are carefully constructed with detailed instructions to be helpful to novices in Italian cooking. He carefully chooses recipes that have broad appeal, capture the unique Italian cuisine and are reasonably easy to construct.
I particularly liked the almond cake. I watched him make it in Italy and came right back and made one myself with his recipe and it was just the sameÔÇŽand delicious. His gnocchi is outstanding!

We highly recommend this great experience. Chef Alessandro is professional but relaxed making five course menu effortless and fun with everyone hands on. Not to be missed.
