    A day to recommend
    Our family day at our Italian Table with Jennifer was an amazing experience. This is my second visit as loved it so much booked for my sons birthday. We had fun learning how to make pasta with lots of cooking tips along the way. We then enjoyed the food in a beautiful setting outside surrounded by lovely countryside. Jennifer is a warm and engaging person who created such a lovely environment for our family. Highly recommended.

    A delicious and authentic pasta experience.
    What a sensational day! 9 students and our fabulous chef/teacher Jo, assisted magically by Sue, spent parts of the day gathered around our prep table preparing ravioli, garganelli, fettuccine, a tiramisu AND some biscotti. Paired up we prepped 4 sauces and antipasto and kneaded & rolled the various styles of pasta. When not busily working, guided by the sure hand of experience in Jo, we were seated outside with sublime views across the vines and to the mountains, eating, chatting, drinking and sharing. Suitable for both the experienced cook and the total novice, I highly recommend this experience. A great way to demystify the process of pasta making whilst also enjoying the beauty of the Hunter Valley.

    A Must Do
    What an amazing experience, learning the Italian way of pasta making. We made 3 different types, tiramisu (so yum) an biscotti and Jen was so relax and helpful, it was easy. Sue helped keep everything ready and it all went so smoothly, the time flew by. I was mesmerised by the knowledge and skill shared with us. and our creations were edible. For anyone wishing a true cooking class full of fun and wonder, Jen and Sue make you part of the big Italian family.

    An amazing food experience in the Hunter Valley
    Such a wonderful experience, completely recommend. Firstly, you cant go past Jen's contagious happiness, she really embodies the sense of adventure we all undertook the moment we walked into Our Italian Table. The setting is idyllic, the format and concept educational, but also fun. The end product... well, we were a corporate lunch group of 9 pax and we struggled to eat any dinner afterwards. It was simply scrumptious! Another point to mention is that this is a great team building activity. For us it was an end of year adventure, after months of hard work and often stressful times. Well done Nic. This is a product that has found its niche in the gorgeous Hunter Valley!

    Fantastic cooking experience in the heart of the vineyards
    The pasta-making class I attended here was fabulous. The small group atmosphere was fun and friendly. Hostess/teacher Jen is knowledgeable and passionate about Italian cooking, and shared her skills generously with the class. Completely hands-on, we made bread, several different pastas and biscotti - and best of all we then enjoyed the feast in the beautiful outdoor area. I highly recommend Jen’s cooking classes to anyone with an interest in Italian cooking (or eating!).

    A Great Experience
    My wife and I went along as a belated Christmas Gift for each other. We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the experience. Jen and Val were lovely, knowledgeable, and patient. We have experience with making pasta but still learnt so much. We highly recommend Our Italian Table.

    Fantastic time and delicious food
    We had our first experience with Our Italian Table last week with a group of friends and colleagues from work after hearing some great things from our clients. It was such a fun morning, interacting with some lovely ladies and learning some very handy and helpful pasta making tricks for home. The best part was making the pasta together and then sitting down on a big, shared table outside to eat delicious food and wine. I would highly recommend a visit to Jen, Jo and Sue for a wonderful group experience and fantastic day!

A fantastic experience with work colleagues & friends. Crazy fun cooking our own pasta, bread, tiramisu... and learnt a lot. Jen is masterful in her teaching, passionate and generous with her knowledge and delicious sauces, biscuits, cakes... everything was scrumptious. All this and more while quaffing wine, laughing with/at each other, in the most magical elevated setting overlooking the beautiful Hunter Valley. A must do when you're in the Hunter.

What a brilliant day! We learned so much from Jen, how to make fresh pasta and some sauces, biscotti, bread and Tiramisu.
The setting is idyllic, on a small vineyard looking out to the hills, with a well equipped kitchen and alfresco dining area. We got to prepare and then eat a wonderful meal.
Great fun and we learned skills we'll definitely use at home. We can't recommend it more highly.
