Ciao! I’m Giovanna. I was born in Tuscany, but I live with my husband Richard and my son Cosimo in the Cotswolds, where I own a small catering business called “I piatti di Giovanna“.  My dishes can’t generally be found in tourist restaurants. I seek to present the food eaten by Italian people in their kitchens, in their every day life and on special occasions.


Last summer, I started Giovanna’s Supper Club in the beautiful Cats Abbey, near Burford; an elegant and stylish occasion for people to meet and taste delicious food. Richard and I have just bought a lovely apartment in a medieval hilltop town in Tuscany near the sea, that we are renovating. I love to spend some sunny time there but I  will let it out when I’m back in the Cotswolds.
