Ciao Amici and Foodies,
Let’s plan your next dinner party with some rustic Italian flair! We’ll design a menu together, special for your occasion and I’ll come to your house as your Private Chef and treat you and your guests to a home-cooked meal all’italiana, served family-style, that you don’t have to shop for, prepare or clean up after–just kick back, relax, enjoy your company and some great food in the comfort of your own home without the stress that entertaining usually entails.
I am working on new menu ideas to celebrate the oh-so-near return of la primavera (spring)! Ingredients like asparagi (asparagus), spinaci (spinach), carciofi (artichokes), ortica (nettles), ravanello (radish), etc., are getting me excited about the extra light in our days and more fun foods to incorporate into healthy, rustic Italy-inspired meals.
Italian Dinner Experience (sample menu)
