Italian Inspired Menu

Join me at my home for an evening of home-cooked food:

Italian Hard Salami with Grapes and Melon

Garden Salad with Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette

Fresh handmade Roasted Garlic Bread

Classic Cheese Lasagna

Italian Cookie Platter

Iced tea, water and coffee.

Please feel free to bring your own choice of wine.


About Me:

I've been a professional chef for over 10 years and I'm really looking forward to this menu!

The evening should have the privacy of a dinner party, with the thoughtful innovative dishes of a top restaurant, the difference being you can talk to myself about the ingredients and the recipes I've used, and maybe meet some new interesting friends :) 

Note from organizers:

Here are some comments from Frank's previous dinners:

'Absolutely delicious'

'Worthy of five stars!'

'Amazing! My favorites were the gumbo and the watermelon sorbet. They had really amazing flavors and the homemade bread for the gumbo was fantastic!'

'The venue is fabulous, and everything was professionally presented and excellent servers.'

'Beautiful sunset views and great hospitality.'

'I met some great people and fell in love with watermelon sorbet. Cant wait for the next one!'

'Great idea. This was a lovely spot with beautiful tables overlooking the canyon. Each course was carefully executed and beautifully prepared.' 

'What a night! I wanted to send a BIG thank you to our host and co-host, compliments to the Chef and servers & all of the delightful "foodies" I met tonight!'

    Wondering where Klaus went, this is why he is absent from the group.
    Read this article.

    A little high for lasagne?

    January 11, 2014

    • Taylor K.

      I agree with Patricia's comments, the price is reasonable for the quality.

      Wow, it seems to me that you never had a handmade, homemade lasagna. Besides it is not "just lasagna". If I was the organizer of this group, you would not have been allowed to join this group, you answered none of the questions and it seems to me that you are one of those individuals who joins a group for the hell of it. My suggestion to you is to go eat at the olive garden, that seems to be your speed for fine dining.

    It is worth every dollar for the time and quality.

    I feel that I was eating in a Five Star restaurant. Compared to the RItz-Carlton food.
