about uncommon feasts
At Uncommon Feasts, we believe in the power of meals shared with family and friends. We cherish the moments of gathering around the table to share simple, luxurious food and stories that keep us lingering long past the last bite. For those extra special gatherings and events, let us take care of the food so you can focus on the stories. We'll work with you to create a custom menu to reflect your needs, whether it's for 2 or 60. So relax, grab a drink and a seat at the table. Let's feast!
Showers, Birthdays, Anniversaries
Special events for businesses
I'm the chef/owner, menu planner and sometimes dishwasher of Uncommon Feasts. I owe my love of cooking and desire to make people happy through eating and drinking entirely to my Sicilian family. I learned to cook and care for others by watching my great aunts and uncles tend small backyard gardens, sitting with them at the kitchen table while they prepared handmade feasts for enormous family lunches and holidays. After 14 years working my way up through nearly every aspect of the food business - starting in restaurant kitchens, catering companies, pie maker, personal chef to actors and directors and a stint at Formaggio Kitchen-South End I started Uncommon Feasts in 2014. It's the answer to a question I've been working my way to answering for a long time: How to combine that familiar feeling of comfort and pleasure of a family meal for your most special and intimate events.
For a longer story about my family and the impact they had on my love of cooking and caring for others you can take a look here at a newsletter I sent to my client's on International Woman's Day.
