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.

Jo and Momi are excellent hosts. We had the most amazing time and made life long friends. The dinner was straight out of the movies with the Farm house, the views, the food and the company.

This was one of the best meals we had during our entire trip. Jo was amazing and her home was very beautiful. It felt like we were having dinner at a friends home. We drove 1:30 min for this dinner and it was well worth it. Very magical!

We had a wonderful time with Jo (Momi was away while we were there). My fiance and I were both a little nervous at first, as being the only guests meant we got all of the attention! But Jo quickly set us at ease and we had a wonderful time gathering ingredients (foraging was so cool!) We went home with all kinds of cooking ideas. She was also very helpful with giving directions to get us through the public transportation system. And of course, the food was delicious.

A definite must if you're travelling to Florence. Both the food and the location were beautiful but the best thing was Jo herself. An incredible host who really made the night special. Would recommend this to anyone.
