An Absolute Blast!
Jan 2020 • Family
We had a GREAT time with Ginny and Fiamma. I consider myself to be a solid cook but I learned a lot! We laughed, learned, drank and ate like crazy people. The meal we prepared was delicious and fed us (3 women) for at least two sittings. I would definitely do it again. Don't miss out on this.

Inspiring and fun
Oct 2019 • Family
We took a cooking class with Ginny and Fiamma with our two kids, age 10 and 12. It was great from the start and then became even better: the kids were completely involved, and we had a lovely, nice and relaxing time preparing the food. Making the pasta was really fun, so now we have already bought our own manual pasta machine. In addition, the food we prepared was probably the best we had during our Tuscany visit. Ginny and Fiamma brought the ingredients, and they do know their stuff! (The wine they brought was also excellent.) Somewhat pricey, but so worth it!

Best Cooking Classes and Meals
Jun 2019
I have had cooking classes with Ginny and Fiamma 3 times, and have also had them in to cook special dinners in rental apartments in Florence twice - both times for 10 people. I have also taken many other cooking classes in Canada, France, Italy and Chile so I have experience learning local cuisines with others.

I can say without question that Ginny and Fiamma are wonderful. They are informative and provide not only recipes, but techniques that can be used whenever one cooks. Their white wine chicken recipe has become a family and guest favourite and is both flexible and easy to recreate at home. In fact, all of the food I learned to cook with Ginny and Fiamma has been food I can cook at home. This has not been the case with other cooking classes I've taken.

I've gone to the market to shop with them a couple of times and they have given me great information about how to select ingredients and also why they choose the ingredients they do. They are also flexible about what can be made.

Regarding that flexibility - they have coped with a long list of dislikes for the dinners they've cooked and for one class they needed to manage recipes that were gluten free, garlic free and cow's milk protein free. Their attitude is "we can find something that works - don't worry".

They both have professional cooking experience in restaurants and it shows, but I really like the way they educate one about food.

Highly recommended. I would love to cook with them again.

Ciao Shirley, first thing, thanks! Thank you very much! The thing that makes us happiest is knowing that you are cooking our recipes at home! That's our goal! You are one of our most loyal customers and we are honoured by that. We hope to see you again in Florence or Rome (now we cook here too!) just to drink a glass of wine together! Say hello to everyone and, when you need advice and recipes, write to us, it will be a great pleasure to help you (even if you are a great chef!)

Some better communication appreciated
Oct 2019
Really disappointed with the sudden end to communication with the Chez Nous ladies. We'd talked available dates, menu choices and venue options. I was trying to organise a birthday present for a friend's 50th birthday and offered to pay in full in advance. I'm not sure why the ladies ceased to respond to emails, it mustn't have suited them I guess. An email saying "sorry, can't help because ..." would have been polite. Just ignoring emails is ignorant and poor service. We ended up organising through the private villas concierge a replacement cooking class, and it happened without a hitch - though at a massive premium.

Ciao Jullian, You are completely right and we apologize! We had a problem and we had not replied to your message. We cannot do much about it now, but we can promise that if you will ever come to Tuscany again, we will organize a special class for you offering a discount for the inconvenience! Sorry again, Fiamma e Ginny

Excellent, Enjoyable, Yummy
Oct 2019
Dinner and cooking class presented and prepared by Kitchen Chez Nous was informative, relaxing and enjoyable. More than that both meals were excellent. They took time to explain various techniques and gave us tips to improve our Italian cooking. I'm excited to prepare the dishes for my family, especially traditional risotto - hint white wine is the key. I highly recommend these ladies they are the real Italian deal.

The BEST pasta of our lives
Sep 2019
What an amazing experience! There were 4 of us that took the class and this easily became our #1 favorite experience in Italy! Fiamma and Ginny were so wonderful and we had the best time cooking (while drinking great wine) and learning about the true Italian food culture from them. We reserved the class in a short notice but there was not a single problem and they were very accommodating. We did the Ginny Menu and the 'Nduja pasta was out of this world!! These ladies are the best, you will have an incredible time.

Favorite experience in Tuscany!
Jun 2019 • Family
Fiamma and Ginny came to our villa in the middle of Tuscany two nights in a row. The first night they taught me and my 11 family members how to make an authentic Italian dinner and dessert. The second night (my 30th birthday dinner) they came and prepared a beautiful menu for us. They are both so warm and friendly and really make you feel relaxed. The cooking lesson was so easy to understand and made everyone really excited to try the recipes when they got home. I can't imagine our tip without these two amazing night with these two amazing ladies. Grazie!

Wonderful experience
Apr 2018 • Friends
Seven of us rented an apartment in Florence and reserved our cooking class at the apartment for the late afternoon after we arrived. Meeting and learning from Fiamma and Ginny was a perfect way to start our Florence adventure. They are smart, funny and talented women. Since they brought the class to us, they also had to bring all the ingredients and all the equipment for the class. A great time was had by all, the food was wonderful and we felt like we had made two new friends.
