It’s been two months since I attended a Cici-Coco cookery class and I have since reproduced my favourite recipes again and again to a very satisfied family. The food cooked on the day was restaurant-quality and tasted amazing however the recipes were not complicated, difficult or fussy.Giuliana has a wonderfully relaxed and welcoming style…a totally authentic Italian experience.

There were only 3 of us(great!)in Giuliana’s lovely kitchen and as well as enjoying what we cooked, the course included excellent Italian goodies all day long. The best part was learning to make pasta for the first time in 50 years of cooking and I am now totally converted to the ‘real thing’! I believe I could easily have followed the other recipes by myself at home but overall, the whole experience was a very happy and relaxed one and would make a fun birthday party for 4 to 6 people.

Despite the weather, it was warm and cosy in the barn and later, filled with the aromas of fine Italian food!
I had a great time cooking and eating, and best of all Giuliana taught me how to make pasta with one hand which meant I had the other free for a fine cup of tea or a fine glass of Italian wine. I’ll be booking again soon! Tim xx

How can you tell if you’ve been inspired by an Italian cookery course? You go out and buy a pasta making machine, and that’s exactly what I’ve done… read full review here

Summer’s here – in full, hot, sunshiny glory. Our little village is ablaze with roses and hollyhocks. Cricket, village fetes, cold drinks in the pub garden, all perfect and classic ways to spend the long light days. But how about a day of Italian cookery in the stunning kitchen of a beautiful old stone village house? Not so usual, but just as wonderful. Shall I tell you about my day at the Cici Coco Kitchen?

I bought one of your Pork, Apple and Quince lasagne for the first time from East Oxford Farmers Market on Saturday and want you to know that my partner and I really loved it. I also bought some of your Caponata and we are looking forward to eating that this week-end…

Thanks for the truly fantastic lasagna; loved the pork, apple and quince – a real Winter’s night treat; keep up the seasonal cooking

The lasagna was an absolute hit, thank you so much… what a skill!

I was recommended your lasagne by the deli (Whitewater) in Wendover, by the manageress, called Juliet whose opinion I trust.

She was absolutely right – I have never tasted such a good and genuine Italian tasting lasagne for ages. It is better that most Italian restaurants. I am also glad that you do a vegetarian one as my wife is veggi, and she raves about it.
I’ve had a few of them now, and it is a regular meal for us. I am going to try the variations like pork & apple. I also keep a tub of the sauce in the freezer for emergencies !

Keep it up – it’s great stuff.
Stan McCartin, Wendover, Jan 2011

Delicious! All your hard work was much appreciated as we loved the wonderful combination of venison & roasted chestnuts. Perfect on a cold and wintery night! Many thanks.

‘Just a quick thank you for the delicious pork (apple & quince) lasagna we enjoyed a few nights ago… the flavours were beautifully balanced and scrumptious!’

‘Beautiful lasagna, will recommend to friends and definately order again…’
Candi, Cuddington

‘It’s the delicious smell that does it.  I wasn’t intending to order this week but if you have a two-person lasagne bolognese to spare I’ll give it a home. / E’ tutta colpa di quel profumino delizioso! Non avevo intenzione di fare un ordine questa settimana ma se hai una Lasagna alla Bolognese per due persone che ti avanza gli do volentieri un nuovo domicilio.’
Anna, Our neighbour, Cuddington

“That was delicious!  Please don’t tell anyone but I even licked the paper to get the last little bit off! / Delizioso! Per favore, non dirlo a nessuno ma ho persino leccato la carta per assicurarmi di non lasciarne nemmeno un pezzetto!”
Fred and Katie, Cuddington

“I had the veg lasagna for dinner tonight and it was absolutely gorgeous. / Stasera ho mangiato le lasagne alle verdure e sono buone da morire.”
Maureen, Chearsley

“Just a quick message to say your veg lasagne was wonderful my parents also had a nibble and thought it was gorgeous! So thumbs up from us. / Un messaggio veloce solo per dirti che le lasagne alle verdure sono favolose. Anche per i miei genitori che ne hanno assaggiato un boccone sono buonissime!
