Hello, I wanted to thank Chef Eleonora and Daniela for the wonderful cooking class at Podere Monti. It was a gift for our dear friend and it was a truly great experience. Chef Eleonora was fun, patient and a great teacher. The food was exquisite, especially the Roast Duck porchetta style it was truly delicious, unforgettable. They made our stay at the Podere very special. Thank you!

magical evening

Dear Chef Alessandro, What a magical evening we spent with our family last night enjoying Chef Eleonora’s wonderful meal. Preparing the dinner with her was so much fun, and everyone came in the kitchen occasionally to check on our progress. The attention she paid to our specific special dietary requests was appreciated so much! Please thank her again for being so delightful and for helping to make our Anniversary dinner a memory we will all share forever. Thanking you both once again, Claudia and Tom

Buno Gusto !

We joined Allesandro for two days - first a visit to the Montepulchiano market and lunch preperation and then for dinner then next day. Only a 20 minute very scenic drive from Pienza. We greatly enjoyed our time with Allesandro preparing wonderful yet practical dishes. Montisi is a beautiful small town and the Little Kitchen is an excellent and well equiped facility. We have been to many cooking classes and the Tuscan Chef is at the top of the list. We highly recommend Alessandro for anyone who is interested in a fun afternoon / evening or morning learning to cook Tuscan food in a wonderful setting. Larry and Michelle.

Just what I wanted

We were in Tuscany and hired Allesandro for a cooking class. He was so great. Nice, professional, fun, knowledgeable. The food we made was delicious! I\'m a cook, but I also learned things I did not know. This class was one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany. I will always recommend the Tuscan Chef!!! Darlene - May 24, 2018

Excellent Cooking Class Experience!

We booked in a 4 course cooking class while on our honeymoon in Tuscany and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. Alessandro was friendly, professional and knowledgable. The food we made was delicious, we went home with recipes and our own little aprons (such a nice touch). Highly recommend!

An amazing experience we will never forget!

We simply loved our cooking class with Chef Piccinini! He met us in the morning at the market in Montepulciano and taught us about many of the unique ingredients for sale. From there we developed a menu on the fly. Later that afternoon he showed up, ingredients in tow and aprons for all of us to wear (we also got to keep them!). Course by course we were taught how to properly prepare dishes like Asparagus Risotto, Salted Sea Bass (AMAZING!) and Monk’s Beard salad, a local favorite. He was patient and very fun to be around. We all felt right at ease and we can’t wait to see him on our next trip to Tuscany.

We were a group of eight who first experienced with the chef a bit of truffle hunting in a nearby reserve. Understanding the kinds of truffles and their seasons as well as the process by which they are found was so neat to see firsthand! We returned and made a three-course lunch using the truffles, including pasta, truffle egg and a for dessert a flourless chocolate cake. The chef was organized, he quickly and expertly involved everyone and used his skills and personality to help us create both a terrific lunch and provided many “ teachable moments “ The kitchen is modern and immaculate. The food and company were terrific. Chef worked as a maestro, conducting a group with a variety of skills and producing a delicious result. I would highly recommend that if you have an opportunity to work with Alessandro that you do so.

An Amazing Meal with in the Incredible Chef Alexandro

It was such a gift to be all together with our whole family at the incredible Villa degli Artisti in Montepulciano, Tuscany. Our meal by Alexandro was fit for a king and queen in this medieval palace of Italy. Alexandro was so patient and kind and shared with us the best culinary skills that became our favorite meal of our 20 day trip in Europe. He gently guided our grand ones ages 9, 10, 11, 14 and 15 in making the most delicious Italian pasta sauce, and the fun and tasty pechi pasta that we rolled out to almost 3\' long...so scrumptious. The beef in wine sauce was also my favorite and the marvelous pork shanks and chocolate cake were the ultimate!!!! Please don\'t miss out on this \"Italian Cooking Lesson of Love\" as your family becomes \"mini chefs\" getting all the skills and empowerment to cook for their parents and grandparents putting a smile of content on all faces. Alexandro was kind enough as well, to share all his recipes with us, so we can enjoy this night in our minds to treasure for always. This type of experience is priceless with Alexandro. With all our love, thanks and blessings for you and all you hold dear! You will make a great dad someday! Amore! And God Be With You!

Amazing Cooking Class with Alessandro

My wife and I couldn\'t have asked for a better experience. Chef Alessandro was so welcoming and we learned so much. With his guidance, all four courses came out delicious. Also getting to pick what to prepare was a great highlight.
