I was born in Florence and grown in the small village of Lastra a Signa where I still live with my husband and kids. I graduated at the hotel school of Florence and soon had the opportunity to work in restaurants and hotels. Experience took me to marketing and sales managing but I never forgot my cooking traditions, so that, in 2007, I decided to make a change in my working life. I'm a passionate resercher into traditional Tuscan cuisine and wish to share my knowledge with all who want to learn a bit more of our ancient culture. I speak fluent english.

The cooking lesson with bars are was great! She's so friendly, incouraging, generous and we had so much fun! The food was so delicious and her garden with fresh vegetables and herbs is perfect. Her English is very good. We spent the whole day at her house cooking and eating until we rolled out of there!

Cercavo un regalo a sorpresa per il compleanno di mio marito; cosi' ho pensato di chiamare Barbara chef a domicilio. Ho scelto il menu etnico. E stata un esperienza veramente piacevole, Barbara e' una professionista di eccellenza, ha saputo dosare abilmente cordialita' disponibilita'e discrezione. Ottimo menu e vino. Ci siamo rilassati e goduti il nostro girdino come mai fino ad ora. Grazie Barbara alla prossima.

In 2013, my wife Nancy and I enjoyed a great evening with Barb in Tuscany. Cooked fresh ravioli, tiramisu and had a wonderful dinner with friends Gayle Arnold and Glenn Leeland. Barb was charming and had a wonderful touch in the kitchen. We WILL visit again if we return to Tuscany. Delicious food.
