Chef Annette was raised in a southern Italian family where the love of food, and the authentic preperation of each dish was central to every gathering. She began her journey with food as a child, each Sunday morning rising early to prepare the Sauce (gravy) and meatballs. Chefs' mother, Ginger, and grandmother, Carmella, were very talented in the kitchen. In fact to this day Ginger is still making delicious cookies, desserts and Pasta the "old way". They did everything from gardening, canning, baking, and candy making to making homemade bread, pizza and sausage with Uncle Joe. All these wonderful traditions were planted in Chef and now she brings this ageless knowledge to every dish she prepares, from her kitchen to your table. Chef has worked diligently to ensure food and service that is second to none.
