I had an amazing experience with my 9 year old daughter. She is a kinesthetic learner. If she is not moving most times she is not getting it. This experience for her and I was full of all her favorites. Alessandro was funny, insightful and patient with us. He explained each item prepared and even where it came from. He was able to work with our interesting food request. I myself almost vegan and my daughter the cheese lover. We made an eggplant dish, with brushetta with peppers, chocolate mousse and pici ( homemade spaghetti). Not only was he clear with his explaining of each dish, but he made it all look effortless. I would do this again in a heart beat. His patience with my daughter\'s ADHD alone was enough to seal the deal. Making pausing to change music as we cooked didn\'t bother our chef at all. He participated in our music selections and he never missed a beat in our cooking experience. The food was beyond awesome. I have never liked peppers, but after this meal I can make them just the way I was taught and enjoy them. Oh let me add, the SAUCE was the best EVER and had a little extra something. You have to experience it to really appreciate it. Alessandro came prepared with all of his supplies and food and ready to share ALL of skills and dishes. I can\'t say enough. It\'s worth a booking with the Tuscany Chef

Mr & Mrs

Eleanora cooked us (3 couples) a delicious Tuscan meal at our villa in Podere Ampella on Monday the 31st of July. She was delightful and made it all so easy. It was a relaxing way to \"eat in\" but felt like we were dining out! Eleonare described each dish and ingredients. We had pear, Parmesan, and walnut salad, past with courgette flowers, chicken in herbs and tomatoes followed by a hazelnut parfait with caramel sauce. A great evening and would highly recommend this to anyone holidaying in the area.Thank you, Eleanorand!

Amazing Tuscan Cooking Experience

Chef Alessandro came to our villa at Podere Ampella in San Giovanni d\' Assi and near Montisi. We had an amazing time with him. We have not made ravioli from scratch before so we had a fun time making it. My 8 year old daughter had a great time getting involved with making our meal. We recommend Chef Allesandro if you are spending holiday in Tuscany area, it\'s a \"MUST THING\" to do.

Dear Alessandro, Your cooking lesson was the highlight of our two weeks in Tuscany. You came to our villa on 24 July, and on 25 July we bought the big board and rolling pin. Now we are home and our son made the ravioli by himself and we also made the bruschetta, apple cake and Montalcino chicken. Thank you for everything! Kelly, Robert and Lucas Y.

Vacationed in Italy for two weeks and the best two meals we had were with Alessandro and Eleanora! They were both so fun and helpful, and even on the night that wasn't a cooking lesson, Alessandro still answered all of our cooking questions. The menus he helped us put together were perfect, and I can't wait to try these recipes at home!

Fantastic Chef, Great person

Alessandro came to our villa twice during a week long stay in Pienza. He prepared meals for nine people, four adults and five children (3-13). Everything he prepared was fantastic. He was happy to work with us to accommodate the varying tastes of the children and all nine of enjoyed every bite of his cooking. Alessandro was also very easy to work with during the planning process and was very responsive to all emails, which I found very helpful and was a key reason we chose him in the first place. He was patient and helpful when we were trying to decide on the menus during this process as well. Lastly, and just as importantly, we enjoyed his company. He was interesting to speak with, was happy to have us watch him prepare and talked us through all of the steps. If we ever want a chef in this area again we will not hesitate to hire Alessandro.

Amazing, great with kids

Alessandro was gracious enough to teach us how to make three different pasta courses from scratch -- and they were all amazing, as was he. He patiently stuck with our 8 and 10-year-old kids as they learned to make fresh pasta, and he never flinched. A great teacher, a fun guy to hang out with, and we\'re thrilled we did. We\'ve only been home a week and we already make two of his recipes at home. Bravo, Alessandro!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

My partner Kaitlin and I were holidaying in Tuscany for hr birthday and I arranged a surprise in house cooking class with the Tuscan Chef. We were staying in an Airbnb accommodation and I wasn\'t sure what cooking facilities would be available but Alessandro was completely happy to contact our accommodation host to discuss their requirements. The lovely Eleonora came and taught us how to make and cook the most amazing, completely authentic, delicious Italian food, I have ever eaten. Tuscan Chef was so very accommodating, even to dietary requirements. The whole experience was really like something from a fairy tale and we will never forget it. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! From Ben and Kaitlin (Australia) April 2016.

Fantastic 60th Birthday Gift!

Thank you for a fantastic evening Alessandro! Food was amazing, and we had a wonderful time learning and preparing the food with you. Our mum was delighted with the gift and was certainly an evening to remember!
