She was so warm and gracious.  

We had a fabulous experience and Giuditta was so kind and so enjoyable to be with. Thank you again.

Good afternoon Giuditta!

My friend and I attended your cooking class at Villa La Montagnola on April 24th.  We enjoyed your education on cooking fresh pasta so very much.  I intend on purchasing a pasta maker to make my own pasta.  After having it fresh, the packaged version just doesn’t compare!!
Your English was very good.  We were sorry not to be able to converse in Italian, but we all were able to understand each other with no problems!
Thank you for a wonderful Italian experience and adventure in the kitchen!

Dear Giuditta,

It was a great pleasure getting to know you and having the opportunity to learn some of the basics about Tuscan cooking from you. Today I made some purchases - a deep pan, an Atlas pasta machine, a silicon brush and a lemon peeler. Sunday friends are coming for dinner on their way to Lake Garda and I'll have an opportunity to try some of our recipes. I'm thinking of lasagne, salad and Torte della Mamma. That's probably enough for my first time.

A friend has a beautiful home between Munich and Salzburg and I had the idea that maybe we could all meet there a year from now in September and hire you to cater an Italian party. Of course, we'd all help you with the preparations. She has what is called a "Tenna", a huge barn that can be used for parties, so if the weather isn't good for an outdoor event, we have an indoor alternative. This would be sometime around the 16th, which will be my 75th birthday. Would you consider coming?
I hope your new group is going well. Stay well and have a wonderful trip to London. When are you going?
All the best,

“great people, great food”
We are a family of four with two childeren ages 10 and 13. We had a great experience with our family. They were very accomodating to our schedule and started an hour early with no notice. Our children were kept involved and the food we prepared was interesting and diverse. We especially enjoyed making the pasta. We have since been able to replicate the dishes at home.

“Wonderful experience”
Hello, I would like to let you know how much my friend Sue and I enjoyed our cooking lesson on 4 July with Chef Giuditta. We found Chef a wonderful lady who helped us to understand and cook some delicious meals which I have tried to make for my family. It was a lovely day and I will recommend to friends who travel to Italy to come and enjoy your wonderful location and hospitality. Thank you again, could you please tell Chef Giuditta how much we both enjoyed our time with her.

Otroligt god mat lagade vi med hjälp av vår Italienska kock. vi gjorde 4 rätter som vi sedan avnjöt på terassen med vin. Det var prisvärt och rekommenderas varmt.

“Tuscan cooking”
My partner and I were doing a trip through Tuscany when he got called back for work. He booked me into a villa for a two day cooking course while he was away. I had such an amazing time. The cooking classes were absolutely great. We learned how to make pasta and other traditional Tuscan dishes. After preparing the dishes we were treated like 5 star guests by Giudetta who served us while we were overlooking the beautiful Tuscan hills. Giudetta did a great job at hosting the classes as well as making the whole experience memorable. Definitely something everyone must do when in Chianti region! Would love to go back again.

“Most Authentic Tuscan Experience”
We were given a brochure about this tour from a tourist office in Florence, and it was a very authentic and knowledgeable lesson from Judita. The three of us had a lesson on our own and we were given the opportunity to learn how to cook fantastic dishes, while enjoying our lunch on a beautiful terrace overlooking the hills of Tuscany. If you like to cook, this is an amazing day not to be missed in Italy! We were constantly comparing the dishes we made to any restaurant we went to afterwards, and it was hard to beat!

“What an enjoyable experience!”
My husband, Mike, and I had such a great time. We had so much fun cooking and also just visiting with our instructor! I am learning the Italian language so this was a double treat for me! We will certainly do this again!!!

“A real highlight on our Italy holiday”
My wife and I booked our cooking lesson thinking we were going to be in with a group of people. We arrived at the villa in Greve to find we were getting Our lesson on our own. Giutti was both professional and warm as she taught us. The food we created with our own hands and her guidance was fantastic. The end of the meal she served us on the patio. We would highly recommend ItCooking.

“Fantastic !”

Our course with It Cooking was a great experience, and the meal, which one can eat after the course was wonderful. We learned a complete Tuscan menu, with fresh ingredients and were taught by a fantastic and friendly teacher. I can recommend this as something interesting, fun and original to do on your vacation.
