Chef for the Day Dinner - September 20th - Chris Curcio

Chris Curcio
Chef for the Day
6 course dinner ~ Monday, September 20

reservations being accepted between 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Sotto Sopra Restaurant is pleased to announce that Chris Curcio will be our guest chef on Monday, September 20th. Under the guidance of our chef/owner Riccardo Bosio, Chris will be preparing a delicious six course dinner.

Chris’s passion for food began at a very young age. Whether it was helping his parents in the kitchen or watching cooking shows on TV, he was always captivated by the different ways food could be used and the joy it seemed to bring people. Food for him was always about family. His parents are Italian and Irish, so food was always a major part of holidays and family gatherings. Some of his fondest memories from childhood are from holidays at his grandparents house in New Jersey, the entire extended family huddled around tables spooning platefuls of classic Italian favorites.

As Chris got older and began cooking for himself, he realized just how much he enjoyed it. Spending a Sunday trying a new recipe or experimenting with different cuisines is one of his favorite things to do. He looks forward to sharing his love of cooking with everyone on September 20th.
