Class participant

Chef Alessandro\'s class was fabulous, wonderful, and very hands on. He met the participants (from US, Australia, Canada) with a glass of Prosecco to get the evening started. He provided printed recipes of each dish. We were all allowed to participate, and everyone did! My favorite was the baked pecorino over radicchio that had been lightly dressed in olive oil. And the delicious pancetta wrapped pork tenderloin wjich was baked and then wrapped in a phyllo dough brushed with egg...gorgeous and delicious. Did I forget to mention the flourless chocolate cake with lemon rind coulis? All served with great local vino rosso. We made some great friends, and will do another class when we return in the spring! Alessandro is a gem!

Enjoyed an wonderful evening of cooking and camaraderie with Chef Alessandro this month. What an experience! Chef was a great teacher, our fellow students were a joy, and the food was delicious! Definitely one of the best experiences of our time in Italy!

Thank you

Dear Daniela Well we are back home in Australia and it's nearly a month since our wedding, so apologies this is so belated - but we both wanted to thank you and your team at the Tuscan Chef for your amazing service for both our wedding dinner and the other dinner. We really have only wonderful things to say. You were so helpful right from the beginning, and so amazing at catering for all of our dietary requirements - we felt like nothing was too much trouble. And the food was sensational - our guests are still talking about it. We had the most lovely wedding and want to thank you for the role you and your team played in it. All of our thanks Amber and Nick

Awesome cooking class!

The 7 of us took a cooking class this evening for nearly 4 hours. I wasn't sure how the kids would react to the class, but all three of them loved it! They were eager to jump in and chop, mix, and peel. Our menu for the evening included Chicken Liver Pate Crostini, handmade Ravioli Stuffed with Potatoes and herbs, Crusted Pork Tenderloin, and Crostata for dessert. After the work was done, we relaxed at the table, savored every bite of our "hard earned" meal, and talked and laughed together.

Great job Alessandro !. We really enjoyed the relaxed cooking class you gave at our villa. We learned a lot and are anxious to start using the recipes you gave us. It was fun to have all 4 of us participate and you gave great direction without any pressure !. Hope to see you again in Italy some day.

Thank you, Alessandro, for a perfect evening. The cooking class was fun and the results delicious. Thank you for bringing everything to \"our home\" near Sovicille. It made it so easy and relaxing for us. We enjoyed the whole experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. Karen Feeney and Mike Cosso

Dear Alessandro, Firstly I want to thank you for the meal you delivered. Everything was perfect and worked really well. As the meal was delivered, your suggestions to make the meal better were exactly right. The meal we cooked together was very good fun and you guided us with skill and a great sense of humour. We all enjoyed the cooking very much. But then, to have it served to us, allowed us to sit down together and enjoy our time as a family. It was a magical time for my family. I want to thank you again for the recipes and for everything you have provided. There was nothing that I would change about anything and I wish you every success in your business. Peter and the family

Alessandro: Could not be more happy with cooking class and dinner. Chef Eleonora was fantastic, truly unbelievable. We were an unruly group at best - all with definite ideas about food and its preparation. Eleonora was knowledgeable, attentive and fun. She provided us all with an evening we will never forget. The food was spot on...and we really learned the intricacies of making Gnocchi. As I wanted, the evening should be the high point of our visit to Tuscany. On behalf of all of us both - food preparers and dinners, I want to thank you, Eleonora and Consuelo for creating a great memory of Italy to take home. Gracie tanti.
