    I followed up the recommendation made in your newsletter to have a private chef for one of the meals we had on our holiday. I chose Emily Hardcastle at A Tuscan Table because she said she cooked for vegetarians. She was endlessly patient in planning the menu taking into account our preferences and came up with a brilliant menu within our budget, which she cooked to perfection. I could not rate her professionalism and skills more highly, so if you have any queries from other readers, especially for those with special diets, do recommend her. They will be as pleased as we were.

    We just wanted to thank you very much for the beautiful dinner you cooked for us on Tuesday night. The food was absolutely delicious, and Jordi had such a nice surprise for her birthday.
    We will certainly recommend you to any of our friends coming this way.

    My family of 9 adults and 2 children were delighted with the splendid meal prepared for us by Emily Hardcastle during our holiday in Chianti. We have a couple of adults with particular dietary preferences, which can make for difficulties with set menus but Emily was happy to discuss and suggest one or 2 variations which satisfied all tastes. The aromas wafting from our kitchen throughout the late afternoon and evening left us weak-kneed! The meal was beautifully served al fresco and the kitchen left tidy and spotless. The evening was the highlight of our holiday.

    We arranged for Emily to come and prepare a meal for 12 of us during our stay.  The reason for our family trip to Tuscany was to celebrate my parents' joint 70th birthdays.  On the last night we had Emily come and cook for us.  It was great.
    Firstly, she came up with some lovely menu suggestions, using ingredients in season at this time of year, and to suit everyones' tastes.  She was more than happy for us to mix and match menus.  She arrived, cooked and prepared, served and cleared away!  It was a real treat for someone else to be in the kitchen.  It was great to have a lovely meal in the villa, instead of going out to a local restaurant.  It was a very relaxed and enjoyable way for us to have a celebration dinner.  I would recommend Emily's services highly.
    I hope that this provides useful feedback to any other To Tuscany clients looking to have a chef come to their villa.
