Interesting fact about me
Quirky, spiritual, love nature, modern art, foreign film/travel/language
I pride myself on offering a TRUE In-Home Shared Dining experience. All preparation and cooking (except where indicated) is done by me! All meals are offered in my apartment located in Astoria, Queens, in New York City. This is truly personal work that I simply enjoy doing. I very much look forward to sharing my cooking, my hospitality and my home with you! +++++++++++++++ My neighborhood of Astoria is very ethnically diverse, and is mainly known for its population of Greeks, Egyptians and Brazilians, among others +++++++++++++++ http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/26/nyregion/tourists-have-landed-in-queens-theyre-staying.html +++++++++++++++ I have been cooking for about 30 years and am self-taught. I am fluent in Spanish, speak a bit of French, and even smaller amounts of Italian and Japanese. +++++++++++++++ My Supper Club events are announced on a variety of websites (including this one) and therefore guests will come from a number of sources. +++++++++++++++ Please feel free to contact me if you happen to be visiting NYC and would like to have a meal at my home. I'd be happy to try and work with your schedule and meal preferences to arrange for a small food event and where you can meet some other NYers and/or tourists. +++++++++++++++ Thank you for your interest! NOTE: There are Two Cats in the home. Host keeps her home impeccably clean and is 'fastidious' about keeping cats away from the food prep area. If however you are severely allergic to cats, you should not attend any of my events as a precaution. Apartment is located on the third floor (there is no elevator in the building).

What my meals are like
My meals focus on quality ingredients, of course delicious taste, and visual attractiveness. My dishes are not 'precise' or trying to be 'high cuisine' or something from a Michelin restaurant. ;-)
Where my meals happen
Most meals will be small and have six diners only, seated around two side-by-side tables.
