About Us

We are a husband and wife team who knows and loves anything and everything Italian, especially Italian cuisine. Duccio is a native Italian who literally grew up in the kitchen with his parents and extended family.  From an early age, he developed a passion for cooking his family’s prized recipes. 

Jen is a native Oregonian, but lived in Italy for almost a decade. When she arrived in Florence in 2002, she immediately fell in love with Italian culture and was amazed at the respect Italians have for their food and the sanctity of the act of eating with friends and family. When she and Duccio met, she blended right in with his family and quickly learned all of their favorite recipes.
