We ( two couples ) had been to Umbria before , and thought we knew the area . Were we wrong !
Besides the cooking lessons , Jennifer was a font of information of everything in the area . We would have missed St Francis' original chapel , with a larger cathedral built over it , if not for her .
We have done cooking classes in Italy before , but , this was by far the best . Being able to ask so many questions in English , and understanding the replies was invaluable . The winery tour afterwards , with her husband, was also very interesting . They are an extremly valuable resource of this area !

We did a cooking class with Jennifer on our friends' last day in Umbria and it was the perfect way to end their trip. We had the class in a beautifully restored palazzo and Jennifer was friendly, super organized, and of course the food she helped us make was delicious! The wine too! It was a super fun experience and the menu she chose for us was something that we think we could absolutely replicate at home... or at least give it our best shot:-) We would all highly recommend a cooking class with Jennifer as a highlight of any Umbrian experience!

Absolutely the must do in you travels to Italy specifically the Umbria region. Our most favorite experience and memorie is most definetly our bike tour through the Umbria Valley. ..Cannara..Spello...Enoteca Properzio...the highlight was chef Jennifer's meal at the end of our ride.

We had Jennifer cook a meal for us at our holiday rental over Easter weekend. The five (or six?) course meal she made for us was by far the best meal we had on our trip to Umbria. We chatted with her while she cooked and served, and we all spent the evening laughing and thoroughly enjoying ourselves. Jennifer shared lots of useful tips for visiting the region with kids, good restaurants to go to in several nearby town, interesting wines to try, and we also had a very nice discourse on olive oil and what goes into a good oil. Our dinner with Jennifer was on our first evening in Umbria, and we spent every day following doing something that Jennifer recommended. We also enjoyed some of the leftover cherry tart for breakfast the next day, and fought over who would get the last sliver the following day! I highly recommend Jennifer and her business, and we will absolutely be in touch with her the next time we find ourselves in Umbria.

We recently spent a week in Umbria and was referred to Jennifer for tours. We chose the Seasonal Farm Tour and loved it! There were 8 of us - 4 adults, 4 kids ranging from 6-14. The ladies at the farm taught us all to make pasta and cheese. It was a really fun hands on experience for both the adults and kids. They served us an amazing 5 course meal that was probably the best we had during the entire trip. Jennifer was such a great guide as it was clear she knew this family and the area very well. She was fun to engage with and educated us on everything from food to wine, to culture and language. The tour was very reasonably priced for what we got. Very much recommend Jennifer for any of the adventures she offers!
