Sample Menus

All items are an example of what can be offered and are subject to availability.

If choosing from these items, I will create a composed menu such that it is seasonal, no ingredients repeat throughout, and the meal flows nicely. Many items can be enjoyed as appetizer course, entrée, family style, or composed into an hors d’oeuvre.
