I happened upon Joni's listing by chance and I am so glad I did. Joni is warm, welcoming, and her cooking is astronomically delicious. She was very attentive to my guests' dietary restrictions and preferences. She was above and beyond in hospitality on so many levels and she accommodated all my needs; some I didn't even know I needed! The ingredients she brought were fresh and of high quality. I highly recommend her expertise and look forward to seeing her again.

Our team and clients had such an amazing time at Joni's Italian Villa. The photos do not do this space justice! Joni is such a wonderful host. She is a natural in the kitchen. Her and her assistants made our Cooking Party a huge success. We got to get involved in prepping, had delicious food, learned knife skills, and had such a great time mingling with our guests. Would highly recommend booking Joni and her space.

Our event was a hit! Location and Host (Joni) was absolutely fantastic. Working with her was easy and fun. Joni's energy is contagious; you feel she loves what she does. If you are looking to host a cooking event and or any gathering, this location is exactly pictured. We plan to host future events with her.
