Always a Treat

Seeing Alessandro and sharing his wonderful meals is always a highlight each year I return to Montisi. Amazing flavors. And prepared with love and ease. Also love that we can access the recipes on the app. I've come home many years inspired to try new dishes. Thank you for being there and sharing your passion with us. Thanks to Eleonora and Daniela, too! Always great to see you all.

Truffle Hunt and Lunch

Scott and I had a great time truffle hunting with Nico, Gus and Rocky! But the real highlight was getting in the kitchen with Chef Alessandro! We had a truffle inspired lunch; tagliolini w/ truffle, truffle eggs and an almond chocolate cake w/ an orange zest sauce. Alessandro was very patient and a great teacher - I do love to cook so I was hanging on his every word! While we\'ve made pasta at home before, we learned new tips and tricks (primarily not relying on the kitchen aid!) and I will be adopting this recipe for sure! Can\'t wait to make all of this at home and look forward to trying some of Alessandro\'s other recipes!

Our group of 6 joined the truffle hunting and cooking class with Alexandro. We had a great time. Alexandro is a good teacher. He is very generous with the white truffles. The food we prepared was so delicious. We feel more confident making pasta. It really gave us a lifetime memories.

Eleonora\'s Cooking Class in Tuscany Villa

Thank you for such an enjoyable evening. Eleonora was such a lovely lady, her instructions and expert guidance enabled us to cook a fantastic meal which was then served up to us with fabulous stye!! The dishes were amazing, who would think we could produce such extraordinary food? Of course it was Eleonora\'s skills that enabled us to achieve the result!! We have already replicated the Apple Cake dessert - with success - and now, back in Australia we are arranging an evening where we will cook the entire meal again!! Hoping we once again have success. Thank you again for a very enjoyable cooking experience!! Cheryl, Denise, Karen, Kerryn, Lauren, Susan and Vicki.

Our cooking class with Alessandro was the finishing touch to our stay in Tuscany. The day was fun but also informative and now feel I can attempt to make pasta myself. Our lunch was delicious. Thank you Alessandro

Kudos to Alessandro, the Tuscan Chef!

Alessandro was an essential part of the great time we had in Montisi. He helped schedule a wonderful chef, Eleanora, to cook for us at our rental and the next day we had a cooking class in Montisi with Alessandro. No only is his kitchen extraordinary, it was a fabulous time with wine and superb recipes. Our family likes to have a good time and Alessandro was an outstanding host and teacher. 5 stars all around from the Kendall Nolan Stall Family, September 2018!

Memorable experience in Tuscany

We had 2 fabulous experiences with Alessandro. First he catered a surprise 4 course birthday dinner for 8 on our first night in Pienza - the food was delicious and he was very accommodating with menu planning in advance. Second, we joined Alessandro and Nico for a memorable truffle hunting experience - very educational, Nico and his dogs Rocco and Gus found 5 truffles and then Alessandro taught us how to make tagliolin with trufflesi and b├ęchamel egg & truffle and a lovely chocolate cake. Alessandro takes great care to ensure you understand the directions and will be able to replicate the dishes when you return home - a great experience.

We recently had a fabulous day with Alessandro making souffl├ęs, ravioli, fish and dessert. We started by going to the markets to get produce which was great then back for the cooking class. Like another person commented I think I may be able to cook pasta now. Would recommend this to all.

Very happy we were introduced to Alessandro!

My husband and I have vacationed in Tuscany many times and have never felt compelled to take a cooking class as we would rather try the local cuisine prepared by the experts. ;) But were were invited to join another couple who had taken Alessandro\'s class before and were so glad we accepted. The dishes were all delicious and, with the exception of the ravioli (I now have a deep appreciation for beautiful handmade pasta), we feel confident we can recreate at home. Great experience. I highly recommend including Alessandro\'s class in your holiday plans.

Wonderful Cooking lession!

What a delightful afternoon we had with Eleonora teaching us how to cook authentic Italian food. We were staying at a Villa and we were very keen to have a \"cooking day\" at home so our travel agent found Tuscan Chef and we are glad she did! Eleonora was great fun, super knowledgeable about our dishes and a very good teacher. We had selected our menu in advance consisting of: Insalata Di Farro Di Alessandro, Home made Tagliatelle with Tuscan Ragu, Roast Duck Porchetta Style, & Pecorino, ricotta & pear tart. Elenora instructions and tips were perfect. The food was absolutely delicious and once it was all ready Eleonora served us in our beautiful dining room and cleaned up afterwards! We all thoroughly enjoyed the entire afternoon especially the pasta making. Now armed with the recipes we plan to recreate it again back in Australia. I\'ve always been a bit nervous to try making my own pasta but now feel fully equipped to tackle it! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience, I can highly recommend Eleonora & Tuscan Chef
