Our family hired Annette Palermo to cater a very special occasion, our mother’s 78th birthday. It was important for us to find the right person to prepare this meal, not only because it was a special event, but also because our mother is known for her own extraordinary cooking skills. Annette Palermo did not disappoint. Her really exquisite and delicious food, which included roasted veggies, pasta with marinara, steamed mussels and little neck clams in white wine garlic sauce, etc, was matched by her friendly stove-side manner. Having her in our kitchen, telling us about the food she had prepared and seeing her enjoying the bustling conversation of our crowded house, Annette instantly seemed like one of the family, making it easy for our mother and all of us to relax and await and enjoy the many mouth watering courses she had prepared for us. From a household of adult children who usually only warm to mom’s cooking, we highly recommend Annette….all the comfort…and none of the guilt.
