If you have any chance to dine at Teda's, do it! I stayed for a month in Italy and this was hands down the best dinner/dinner experience during that time. Teda is a delight and a superb cook. Everything was freshly grown/caught/cooked and amazingly flavorful. But let's start at the beginning: Teda picked us up in the plaza, and since Teda's house can't be reached by car, she led the way to Praiano's charming little vias to her property where many of the veggies and herbs we had for dinner are grown. The dinner took place in a building from the 1700s, white washed, cozy, and romantic. The table was set beautifully with local ceramics. We started out by assembling our own appetizer, grilled mozzarella in lemon leaves, soooo delicious. This was followed by 4 more courses, freshly prepared right there, one more amazing than the next. So much flavor, such beautiful presentation. All of this followed by homemade limoncello. If you want the real Italian experience, this is it. Teda was the perfect hostess, charming, interesting, skillful, who made us so welcome we didn't want to leave. Her english is perfect and she was easy to talk to. Thank you, Ida, we so enjoyed that evening. It was a highlight of our trip. Mille grazie!
My Wife Brianne and I had the most wonderful dinner with Teda. She cooked for us in her kitchen which was small but very functional. The dishes she made us were all delicious and we had more food than we could handle. Teda is very sweet lady and it was such an enjoyable experience to join her and taste her amazing food. Highly recommend.
We had an absolutely wonderful time with Teda! Her cooking was excellent and the meal was delicious. It was the perfect combination of traditional Italian food with her family's unique recipes. And good homemade wine. She was sweet and hospitable. Everything was truly made from scratch with most of it coming from her garden! The setting was also unique. One small room that was a 16th century barn. Stone walls and wooden benches. Be sure to check out the restroom next door! It is a bit of a hike up and down stairs to get there so not likely the best place for elderly or disabled. I would highly recommend this unique dining experience when staying in the area!
This review is way overdue, but better late than never! We had an amazing experience in Teda's kitchen. The food she created was so wonderful and tasty. We also had an incredible range of dishes and even got to help with one of them. The setting could have been in a magazine. We felt that this was a truly special experience that not everyone gets when traveling. We highly recommend this BonAppetour experience!
This was a truly exceptional experience. The meal was delicious, creative and artfully presented. The host is gracious and endearing. The setting is extraordinary. I give it the highest recommendation possible.
