Sample Menus

“My menus include old world family recipes handed down over three generations of Italian chefs as well as nouvelle cuisine dishes I’ve acquired through years of culinary experience. I work closely with clients to tailor menus and budget to their needs. I delight in designing an event that surpasses my client’s expectations while staying well within their budget.”
