"Nine wonderful friends came to Italy to rent a house and take cooking lessons. Jeannine Salomons was our fabulous teacher. We loved every minute of it. We learned so much and had a grand time doing it!!"
- Betty Becher USA

"I celebrated my new Italian Citizenship with a magnificent party in Tuscany for Italian & American family and friends. Jeannine made the celebration a huge success with her fabulous menu and her meticulous attention to every delicious and beautiful detail. I so loved her cooking and the joy of doing the party with her, that I invited her to Los Angeles to prepare a Tuscan feast for a group of friends in my home! Jeannine is a treasure and her cooking extraordinary! Bravissima!"
- Julie Sgarzi, Los Angeles

"The absolute highlight of my wedding in Tuscany, besides marrying the love of my life of course, was the culinary extravaganza prepared by Jeannine Salomons. Even the most discerning 'foodie' was impressed by the menus and presentations, and her use of local produce gave an extra dimension to being in Tuscany. Most warmly recommended!!!"
Lawrence Renes, The Netherlands

"We (the cooking girls) learned so much from you in our classes...we are still having your dinner parties in the States!.....Pasta -- done correctly-- is an art...That art we learned from you....Thank you for all your good and happy lessons!"

"Dear Jeannine, we all remember your fabulous cooking classes. As you know we go some place different every September and that time with you in Italy was my most memorable. We had so many laughs sitting out side under the arbour after cooking all those delicious recipes, drinking, and talking, the memories will always be with me. I wish you luck with your new venture and hope to come back and see your new house."

- Kit Pannill Palm Beach, Florida

"We have been fortunate to have had Jeannine as our cook in Tuscany for several years and it is one of the highlights of our holiday. The quality of the food and standard of the cooking is simply wonderful. Beautiful and authentic Italian food with delightful original and individual touches make each meal a delight.
In addition, Jeannine is very friendly with fantastic language skills. She is also great with the children. In short she is 'one of the family' and we recommend her very highly".

- The Clark-Davies Family, London.
