A deliciously amazing unique experience!
Daniela cooked a delicious Christmas Eve meal for us at our villa during our stay in Umbria. This was such a unique and wonderful experience that I would highly recommend! The food was amazing and Daniela is a true delight.
Outstanding Experience of Umbrian Cuisine
We engaged Daniela to cook for us for 10 days in Umbria. The number of guests ranged from 4 to 10, depending upon the day. Daniela’s meals were magnificent every day and we got a wonderful exposure to authentic cooking of the region. She was incredibly flexible, too, and able to prepare meals that were off the “menu” with no difficulty. We loved having her with us in the evenings because she was always warm and congenial. She became part of the family in the end. Not only were her meals excellent, she was able to cater for all kinds of special needs, including celiac, dairy free, sugar free, etc., with no difficulty. I would highly recommend Daniela to anyone who wants to experience a carefree experience of the best of Umbrian dining in a relaxed atmosphere. She is efficient, always on time, full of ideas, and an expert in her trade. We will seek her out again when we return to Citta` di Castello.
Daniella our professional chef put the icing on our holiday!
Spent a week in Sterlinghe, Citta Di Castello. It was wonderful to come home each evening from a hard day enjoying ourselves….to be met by Daniella with fresh, home cooked, amazing dinners. We didn’t have to go out, but could relax confident that we’d be well fed. Daniella is a gifted chef. She is friendly, flexible, professional and completely committed to providing great food. I would highly recommend her as a must have addition to holidaying in Umbria.
An Absolute Must for your Umbrian Holiday
Our host hired Daniela to make dinner for 7 consecutive days, a genius move turning a great vacation into a perfect vacation. We returned to Villa Sterlinghe after touring each day to her warm presence, and relaxed as she cooked for a revolving roster of Celiac, dairy-free, sugar-free and very selective guests from all over the world. Her Thanksgiving turkey was the finest I’ve ever had; her simple salad phenomenal. A true chef, she adapts on a dime, sourcing all-organic ingredients from her family farm or locally. She graciously rattles off recipes! The last few nights she joined us at the table, sharing priceless local wisdom, hilarity and becoming one of the family. Can’t recommend her highly enough.
Your Home in Umbria
Daniela, you made the Villa feel like home with your delicious home cooking every night. Our meals together were the best part of our Umbrian vacation! Every night was made special gathering in the kitchen and sharing a meal together. We had great fun on Pasta and Pizza night! My husband’s Birthday Dinner was extraordinary with Linguini with Baby Clams, Branzino, fresh from the Adriatic, and delicious Tiramisu with candles!! Thank you for your smiling face, great English, interesting stories about Umbria and wonderful cooking. We wlll see you again on another vacation in Umbria. Ciao xo Laura Lee Miller
