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 have gone by before we thought to join efforts and organise some special occasions in which we could share our culinary abilities and the classical Tuscan flavours with others.
The area is Impruneta (a small Chianti village with a precious square and church), 12 km from Firenze through a nice uphill road that goes through olive groves, vineyards, old Renaissance villas and that 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 may be around...
In case you are interested please suggest time and date for lunch or dinner.
This was by far my most favorite thing in Florence! I felt like a jumped into a country magazine! The experience that we had cooking with them just brought us closer. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!
