What Clients SAY

We love our customers and our customers love us. See what some had to say.

We were told about this place by a friend of ours and I gotta say we were all amazed. I’m a lasagna lover and I have to say that they have it on point. Met the owner and he was beyond nice. Nice customer service too.  Will actually be back once back from tour.

I’m going to be showing you lots of fresh pasta recipes this next year and I hope you will cook right along with me. Fresh homemade pasta is truly a fun thing to make and has so many creative possibilities.  And you can make it at a moment’s notice – who doesn’t have eggs and flour in their kitchen?  I’ve posted about making fresh pasta before, but I wanted to do an update and include a video to show you just how easy it is.  I know when people can see something being made they are more likely to try it.  So the video within this post may inspire you to make the leap!

We returned to Umbria earlier than when we usually do this year, because we had to open up both houses before we leave for Puglia the beginning of May. Although being in Umbria in April means that the temperatures are a little cooler than we like, it also means that we get to experience a longer artichoke season. I never tasted an artichoke until I married into my husband’s Italian family, many, many, years ago and it was love at first bite. I think if you were to try and describe to someone who was unfamiliar with artichokes just what they taste like, it would be difficult. I find them to be a very versatile vegetable, and I prepare them in just about every way possible during their short season. I once even served my husband a dinner that consisted only of artichokes, prepared four different ways. This dish consists of tender artichokes braised in a spicy tomato sauce, and it is so good that I could eat these artichokes alone for my meal along with a couple of slices of crusty Italian bread. I also thought about serving these chokes with a fried or poached egg on top, which ...
