Culinary Philosophy and Menus

Chef Mario studied culinary arts at the Illinois Institute of Art and belongs to several professional culinary organizations in the Windy City.  “Food is one of life’s greatest joys. My philosophy always has been about balancing seasonal food ingredients, locally sourced food, farm-to-table, and nutritive food ingredients. I am a big believer and promoter of enjoying your meals. I always try to ensure that my food inspires everyone to sit down with their family, eat slowly, and enjoy the company.  “This same philosophy applies to banquets, just on a larger scale. Producing massive food functions can have additional perks such as buying out a farmer for the week because we use all the vegetables, they can produce for one single event which is very satisfying for me. We have such a great relationship with several farmers, we can even ask them to grow a special item just for us that we can use in specialized banquet functions.”
