Chef for the Day
Cynthia Rand
Monday, October 11th   ~  Open Reservations

Please join us on Monday, October 11th when Cindy Rand will be our Chef for the Day. Cindy will prepare a delicious five course dinner under the tutelage of Executive Chef Riccardo Bosio.

Cynthia Rand
 Outside of her professional life as a clinical researcher and professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins, Cindy’s passions are family, friends and food-ideally all together.  Cindy’s father was a professional chef in the resort hotels of Miami and Maine for over 20 years before joining the Air Force.  Growing up, her father was the exclusive family cook and his interests in cooking, world food lore and history, as well as his 500+ cookbook collection were inherited by his only daughter.  And when she married a boy from an Italian family equally obsessed with food, the ingredients were in place for creating a family whose primary recreational interest centers on the joys of the kitchen and table. 

For this reason, Cindy’s family-her husband, Art Giovannetti, and her daughters Erin and Devin, thought that gifting her with the Chef for the Day opportunity would be a perfect birthday gift and another occasion to bring together family and friends over wonderful food.
