Dinner At Home
It was a birthday of my partner and as a surprise I had asked for a Chef at home. Saverio ( one of Daniella”s chefs) came. He came two hours before dinner. In no time delicious aromas danced through the kitchen. Saverio is very friendly and an excellent chef. He set the table, served tge diner snd left the kitchen immaculate. A very special evening to remember and worth repeating!
Super activities organised by Daniela
We were a party of 8 adults and 2 babies holidaying in Umbria and we really enjoyed all the classes organised by Daniela. Everything was very efficiently organised even when a yoga class taking place outdoors had to be reorganised due to a hailstorm!
Daniela and all the people running the classes are super friendly and everything takes place in the holiday house which is so convenient for families with small children.
The pasta making class by Daniela was great and there was so much food for our meal later in the day. Two great sauces including pesto sauce made that same morning with ingredients from Daniela’s own garden for our vegetarians!
The pizza class was also well received by our family with the best pizza I have personally ever tasted. Again some dough was left over for us to use at a later date.
The wine tasting class was superb and Rossana was very knowledgable and friendly. She works at a local vineyard with delicious wines . We later organised a private visit to the vineyard for a very enjoyable tour as we enjoyed the wines so much!
The yoga class was in the evening in our garden and was a great way to relax at the end of a day by the pool .
It was lovely to meet and chat with Daniela about local food and recipes .
She runs a very efficient business and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Daniela is super!!
We asked Daniela to cook for us while we were on holiday in Umbria –
It was the best decision we made!
We were two families with young children, plus some other guests. Daniela was already familiar with the facilities in the house where we were staying, so she arrived each day with bags of groceries and took care of everything.
It was so nice to not have to worry about meals and cleanup everyday while we were on holiday.
Daniela was super flexible – even when we asked to alter the menu or schedule for various reasons – and she accommodated the children’s needs brilliantly.
Daniela’s meal were wonderful – not only were they delicious, they showcased some special local seasonal ingredients and cuisine, in a way we had not experienced before.
We will definitely want to work with her again the next time we holiday in Umbria.
Thank you so much, Daniela!
Marvelous dining experience
We had Daniela lined up to prepare a dinner for us as we arrived at our villa near Città di Castello and she exceeded our expectations.
The food was delicious, her descriptions of the history and details behind the local dishes, and even the extraordinary cleanup made it a marvelous dining experience.
It was so good that we hired her on the spot for another night and we were not disappointed!
Truffle hunting in Umbria
An amazing experience in a stunning valley. Wonderful truffle hunter along with his super shy dog.
We had an interpreter who helped us ask hundreds of questions.
A fascinating morning in woodlands filled with wild flowers, orchids and butterflies.
Not only did we find a great black truffle but picked a large bunch of wild asparagus.
We then returned to the newly converted farm building to an magnificent wine tasting and truffle, meat and cheese extravaganza.
Many thanks to Daniela who was super efficient about arranging our trip.
Definitely the high light of our week in Umbria.
