When Life Gives You Lemons...Make The Best Damn Limoncello!

Ciao tutti - It’s Ashley and Jason, your friends from La Tavola Marche. Mamma mia, we’ve got a story for you!

Well, that was quick! Two days after all the documents and contracts were signed at the notary (and legally binding), the “new owners” of La Tavola Marche boarded a plane back to the good ol’ U.S of A.!! (Seriously.) They lasted 6 days in Italy. We were in total shock. It’s the stuff movies are made of. Obviously there is a LOT more to the story but the bottom line is:

When life gives you lemons, you make the best damn limoncello! Jason and I did not want this to be the end of La Tavola Marche. So the choice was easy - we are proud to continue the farm, inn and cooking school we founded in 2007. If anything, this process has rejuvenated our passion for sharing with you the good life we have cultivated here in Le Marche!

We are filled with ideas for new classes and events- a food & photography workshop is already in the works!

The sad part is we thought we found a couple that shared our work ethic, passion, entrepreneurial spirit and integrity to continue what we started; unfortunately that was not the case. We definitely learned a valuable lesson naively thinking we could trust a handshake deal made while sitting at our kitchen table.

Owning a B&B is not a holiday, it’s a life of quality that comes with a lot of hard work. It can be risky & scary at times, and not for everyone. Moving to a foreign country can turn your world upside if you are not prepared. More than physically, you must be mentally strong.

This big old farmhouse has been good to us for the past 9 years - we’ll keep her happy and do our best to keep her filled with happy & hungry guests!

It’s time to unpack the aprons and sharpen the knives because we are back and ready to rock it again!

Home Sweet Home!

Visit the updated website - we hope you join us in the kitchen!



And just incase you were looking for the Best Damn Limoncello Recipe - 
here you go!

The BEST Gelato in Italy: Maki

Congratulations to our friends Paola & Antonio at Gelateria Maki - they have won another big artisan gelato competition in Italy, Gelato Artigianale Festival di Agugliano! Featured in almost every top international travel, food and even fashion (Vogue Italia!) magazines - this is not just any icecream!


 Gelateria Artiginale Maki is a darling gelato shop in the heart of Fano (a quaint fisherman's village along the Adriatic) where it's owners passionately and at times painstakingly churn out handmade gelato in the most innovative and delicious flavors! This is not a fussy fancy place where they try to outdo themselves with strange concoctions just to be different or hip but a family run business that enjoys challenging themselves and using local traditional recipes like ricotta and viscole (a local cherry) alongside exotic flavors of cardamon and curry. And amazingly it all works - even their beer sorbet!

It's light & clean - meaning you don't need a glass of water after - it's made the way gelato should be, absolutely perfect!
