Thanks from Joe Dello Russo

Hello Benedetta - We have just returned to Boston and I wanted to write a quick follow up note to you. 

Our 2 evenings with Duccio and yourself were absolute highlights of our holiday visit to Tuscany. Our entire group had an incredible amount of fun learning from you and enjoying 2 fantastic dinners. Seemed like we all were able to enjoy a few laughs in the meantime. 

I will be sure to mention how well our lesson worked out at the Villa Le Colline, and hopefully that could result in other guests seeking you out as well. The "club" we belong to is called Quintess, and a number of visitors to the Villa are members. 

Once again, thanks so much for coming to the villa for these sessions. Both evenings will be memorable for all of us. 


I will be back at Bella Fortuna later this year!

I am making plans to be in Lake Leelanau, in Northern Michigan, this coming July 8th through the 13th as a guest chef for the second season of the new Florentine-style restaurant Bella Fortuna. It is the project of my friends Dr. Jane Fortune & Dr. Bob Hesse, who spend part of each year at a home in Florence. If you are in the area, please join us for one of my afternoon events or for a lunch or dinner.  See my Events page for more details. - Benedetta
