My name is Maurizio and I was born in Genova, Italy where I learned the secrets of traditional authentic Italian cooking from my paternal grandmother who raised me. My culinary concept is based on the simplicity and the elegance of eating well. Focusing on healthy preparation, the best seasonal products, farm to table with old fashioned as well as updated cooking techniques. I love executing my grandmother's authentic traditional Italian recipes I enjoyed when I was growing up. My partner and I now reside at our 2000 sq ft Yellow Cabin located in Western North Carolina, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We have many activities close by, such as some of the best trout fishing in the Country, white water rafting, hiking, horseback riding, and golf. boat rentals are also available locally during the summer season, and skiing is approximately an hour away. We also have several National Parks within a short driving distance. The Cabin is easily accessible just off the main road and a short drive from several major cities, including; Chattanooga, TN, Asheville, NC, Atlanta, GA, Knoxville, TN, all within a 2 hour drive or less. Our cuisine is prepared with local, fresh all organic ingredients, and each course will awaken your palate to the pleasures of truly homemade Northern Italian cooking. In season, we can offer fresh wild trout as well as wild mushroom dishes such as Porcini and Chanterells. We will be honored to provide you with the experience of a lifetime. You can also relax and enjoy a weekend at our cabin in the mountains at an additional cost. This would include a breakfast consisting of our very own farm fresh eggs, bacon, pancakes, and American or Espresso Coffee or Cappuccino. Sit and relax in front of the stone fireplace, on the front deck, or under the stars in front of our fire-pit. We're looking forward to providing you with a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere and an award winning dining experience.

Cooking is my talent and passion
What hosts are saying about Maurizio & Juana
We had a wonderful evening with Maurizio & Juana through EatWith. We arrived ahead of our friends and wine was warmed for us by the fire while the concept of EatWith was explained. Dinner was one great course after another. Maurizio's home made bread was enough to make us return! The Lasagna was fabulous and the meatloaf robust and flavorful. We spend the entire evening talking, laughing, eating and enjoying each other. All round an experience we will repeat and an idea we will share with friends. Thank you, Maurizio & Juana. Give them a try!
Had to write review now...I am just starting the first course of Lasagna and OMGosh is it delicious!! I can only imagine what the second course and desert will taste like. The place is filled with amazing smells from the food. I am so pleased to have found this website and the Yellow Cabin. Maurizio and Juana are so kind and friendly. I arrived early and they were very accommodating. I can't wait to dine with them again. Now back to my wonderful lunch!
