"It was really fabulous! I felt like I was time travelling with Julia Child who is really Judy Gifford. Your sense of humour, your energy, your creativity and your very down to earth practical tips will stay with me and in my kitchen always. The accommodation was 'story book amazing'. I love the way we moved through several recipes at once to make the most of our time in the kitchen just the way one does when preparing a meal. Your recipes were five star and absolutely delicious! I appreciated that they didn't require a lot of gadgets or long lists of ingredients. It was all about technique and blending flavours, textures and with a lovely presentation. These are recipes one can easily replicate at home and proudly serve when entertaining family and friends." -Elizabeth A
“If you have the opportunity to attend one of Chef Judy’s “La Dolce Vita” Cooking Courses in Italy….GO! I had the time of my life with Judy and the greatest group of girls last June in Todi, Umbria. I’m not sure what my favourite part was…staying at Villa San Giacomo, watching Judy turn out creation upon creation in our Umbrian kitchen or toasting the girls each night after “another hard day” wine tasting, olive oil tasting or shopping for Italian ceramics. What surprised me and delighted me the most was Chef Judy’s energy, enthusiasm and passion for all things Italian both in and out of the kitchen. Thank you Judy for the best Todi experience…and for helping to bring passion for cooking back into my life!” Cin Cin, W.G.A.
