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!

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.

Wedding dinner

Chef Alessandro came to our villa in Tuscany and prepared to most delicious dishes for our wedding dinner. He was on time, professional, and clearly is an amazing chef. His waitress was also wonderful! Each course was freshly made on premises..from the pasta to the cake. While visiting Italy we went to many restaurants and this was our favorite dinner out of our two week stay in Italy. We still talk about how amazing everything was. We are so happy we found Alessandro and highly recommend him ! Thank you for making our day so special Alessandro, we look forward to having you come cook for us next time we visit Tuscany!
