GREAT evening with friends and Tuscan Chef Cooking Class

Chef came to our tuscan house near Chianciano Terme to give a private cooking class for 4 of us and it was FABULOUS!!!!! We had a salad in parmesan baskets, a guinea fowl ragu, a fish dish and of course, Tiarmasu - we also made the tagliatelle pasta from scratch! We learned a lot and had a great time and a fantastic dinner! The booking process and meal selection process also went very smoothly - they are very responsive on email in getting this all set up! I would HIGHLY recommend this!!!!

I experienced a marvelous cooking class with chef Alessandro the first week of September, 2019. He is both knowledgeable and patience, a rare combination. He made the learning fun and free of stress. But don´t be fooled: this is the result of lots of planning and careful orchestration for this 4-7:30p four-course cooking lesson. I finally learned how to make good pasta from scratch. Bravo! I would recommend his cooking classes to the novice and experienced chef alike (and it´s a reasonable price, too). Grazie mille, Alessandro.

Our family took a cooking class with Alessandro as part of our week in Tuscany. We had four people who require a gluten free menu, but Alessandro provided a versatile and delicious menu for all of us to enjoy, and the experience of making it together in his lovely space was extraordinary. The menu was delicious, the wine flowed and we laughed and learned so much! One of the best things we did during our magical week in Tuscany—and highly recommend for both experienced cooks and novices alike!

Wonderful evening!

We had a wonderful evening provided by Tuscan Chef. Allesandro was easy to work with in advance. Elisabetta was a delight to have in our villa. Our meal was delicious. We engaged in making the handmade pasta with her, and she was fabulous answering our many questions. The chicken piccata was a huge hit and the chocolate cake was dacedent.

As I heard from our group, our four-course cooking class and dinner was "one of the best meals we had in Italy!" It was a complete success! I also heard, "I didn't think I'd learn so much", and "We all worked so well together!" All in all, a great experience :)

we hired one of Alessandro's chefs, Lorenzo ,to cook for 15 of us! It was a magical night and one we won't forget. Our 9 year old grand daughter especially loved rolling out the dough for raviolis. A magical night to celebrate two 70 year old birthdays!

We participated recently in one of Chef Alesssandro's cooking class with our two children, who are in their twenties. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. Chef Ale was patient , thorough and was able to cater to our family's gluten and vegetarian dietary restrictions . ..and the dishes were all divine!

Wonderful evening

My family and I were in the Tuscany for a vacation and booked a private dinner with the Tuscan Chef. Our Chef was Lorenzo and we could not get a better chef. It was great experience and definitely a highlight of our vacation. Lorenzo created a wonderful dinner (we had a huge selection available) starting from a Tuscan Bread salad (Panzanella), over a fantastic Bucatini to a perfect Guinea-Fowl. It ended with a fresh Tuscan apple tart. During the cooking I was able to learn a lot from talks and looking over the shoulder. Lorenzo itself is a very nice person which I can only recommend. We will come back for sure - and we will book again 100%.

I cannot rate Allessandro and his team of talented chefs highly enough. Alessandro was an excellent communicator in the weeks leading up to my stay in Tuscany, and he even made an exception to have his driver drive to our Rental House even though it was outside the area they normally go. Lorenze, our chef, cooked a delicious meal for us and was delightful to have around. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and we felt extremely lucky to have him. His "duck porchetta style" was one of the best dishes I've ever had in my life! Next time we are in Tuscany, we will definitely be calling on Alessandro and his talented crew again. Thank you for making our stay so memorable!

Best duck ever!!

This was truly a highlight of our entire trip to Italy. Chef Elizabetta (who was absolutely delightful!) came out to our rented villa just outside of Montisi and took my family of 7 on an unforgettable four + hour culinary journey through Tuscan cuisine. We all found her to be exceptionally knowledgable and also extremely patient....even my four and five year old were able to participate in the meal prep! Every course was delectable, but the roast duck was hands-down the most deliciously divine duck any of us had ever experienced. There wasn't a morsel of meat left when we were done! Trust me...you will not regret booking a cooking course with this company. We only wish we had more time so we could have her over again. :)
