We live in the hilly outskirts of Florence in a quite special spot, amongst olive groves, vineyards, pine and oak woods. Coming from big cities and having lived abroad for many years, the wealth and variety of Italy's fruits and vegetables inspires us every day and the pace of the Tuscan countryside allows us enjoy it. We believe in the importance of respecting nature and that's why our cooking follows the year's seasons, avoiding chemically treated products. Although we pursued very different paths in life (Momi, a Milanese, is an architect and Jo, a Spaniard, works producing cultural events), we have always loved cooking for family and friends and that's how we first met... cooking for our children's after-school playgroup! Many dinners, lunches and picnics went by before we thought to join efforts and organise some special occasions in which we could share our culinary abilities and classic Tuscan flavours with others. The area is Impruneta (a small Chianti village with a precious square and church), is12 km from Firenze by a nice uphill road that goes through olive groves, vineyards, old Renaissance villas. It looks at Firenze from the top - 20 mins driving, 30-40 mins by bus. This is the exact position of the house: georeference "43.682163, 11.229222" you can copy & paste on googlemap or other maps or key it in a navigator. Often Jo's partner sits with us for lunch or dinner and if you bring children also our three children would be happy to join us! Feel free to request your own time and date for lunch or dinner.

What to expect
We had a marvelous time! The view and atmosphere was breathtaking! The food was so delicious and we greatly enjoyed the company!
What a perfectly magical evening with Momi! Right from the very beginning at the time of booking, communication was prompt, directions were flawless and we had the incredible opportunity to spend the evening at Momi and Jo's home for a delicious meal. It started with homemade foccacia and crackers which were soooo good, following by a lemon infused pasta, salad with fresh local greens, the best eggplant parmigiana we've ever had and the meal ended with a delicous dessert that consisted of fresh fruit, cream and a local liqueur of which the name escapes me at the moment. More importantly? We spent the evening with incredible people from different corners of the world with the important lesson/reminder that we are all humans, no matter where we live in the world and we all want that human connection. You can learn so much from just chatting and listening to people . That, THAT was a highlight of our evening. To our incredible host, Momi, thank you so much for opening your home to us and cooking an incredible meal for us. It was the highlight of our trip.
No other word to describe this evening except for magical! It was a beautifully set meal perfectly portraying the stunning Italian countryside farm house. The atmosphere was wonderful, Jo made sure all the guests felt comfortable, especially she has created a warm atmosphere between all the guests. Beyond the delicious food, we where glad to share the superb evening with a lovely international group of people.
