Virtual Cooking & Language Events
It was Gina’s warm and engaging personality that stole the show. Believe me, you can’t resist falling under her spell within the first few minutes. She kept everyone laughing and engaged throughout the evening. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”

Wow, wow, wow. What a special event. All of my friends were telling me how much they LOVED this experience. It was so special and the food was at its finest!
Maggie Iribarren, Motion Filmworks
"We laughed for 90 minutes straight. In addition to cooking a traditional Italian meal, Gina led us through some key Italian phrases and peppered the evening with history that related to it all. She was truly captivating! We loved, loved, loved it!

Virtual Language & Culture Courses
Taking Gina's class is a fun and lightweight way for me, a busy working mom of 7, to relax and nurture my own intellect, and fulfill this lifelong goal I have. It has been a form of self-care and I have enjoyed Gina's energy and her guidance and her experienced teaching style very much. I would recommend Gina's class to anyone who loves the Italian culture, language, food, people and history.

Gina's class was so much fun! I loved that she kept the lessons fresh and engaging by switching between interesting culture lessons and language instruction. Gina created a welcoming environment and a safe place to make mistakes (inevitable when learning a new language). I would recommend this class to all Italophiles!
Group Travel and Private Tours
“Your tour provided exactly what you advertised…eating better than a Roman Emperor and going to less traveled places where only a great relationship with the proprietors would let you in!

Tours: Amalfi Coast & Sicily, Italian Countryside
Dear Gina, I am writing this note to thank you for your tireless efforts to make the trip to Greece and Turkey such a memorable one. My thoughts are constantly on something we were doing or seeing on our trip. Thank you again for the super trip and unforgettable memories.

“Gina Hoff is Italian, and her love and enthusiasm for her country are catching. Her trips are well planned so that you have plenty of free time, but if you want her to take you somewhere during scheduled free time, she is available to do that too. And here is the good news: she is not a morning person so the bus doesn’t leave at the crack of dawn like many other tour companies do. It was a fun, educational & relaxing tour, and I highly recommend Gina Hoff.”
Dr. & Mrs. Warren French
“Dining in ancient monasteries, centuries-old wineries, quaint restaurants, all with fabulous food and impeccable service….made us feel we were visiting royalty!”
Tours: Greece, Splendors of the Italian Countryside
We do not know of anyone who has eaten in villas, castles, monasteries and private farm estates in Europe. We are “lording” it over our friends.
