Cuisine

Chef Maurizio incorporates the foundation of most Mediterranean cultures: Family, Friends and Food! He truly believes that the basis of all fine dining surrounds these concerns. You always seem to enjoy a meal more when you are surrounded by your family or friends. That’s why at home parties are such an appeal!! Chef Maurizio will come into your home and prepare an excellent restaurant quality meal for your special guests, up to how ever many guests your house will support!!

You can relax and enjoy the party! The comment we hear most from our past clients is ‘I felt more relaxed while Chef Maurizio was here!’ That’s because most home cooks know the amount of time and effort that is required to produce a great event, from the food, to the tablescapes, all the way to a parting gift. Usually these are the people that are in the kitchen checking on the food while everyone else is enjoying the company. Chef Maurizio and his staff takes the concern out of the event for you, so as you can enjoy the party. Sit back and enjoy the company, you know the kitchen is in good hands.

Our cuisine choices cover all the areas of the Mediterranean, from Italian, French, Spanish, and Greek options to the Middle East. Work personally with Chef Maurizio to customize your event to fit your palate or dietary concerns. Whether you have 10 people to feed or 100, our menu options can satisfy even the fussiest guests! Mediterranean cuisine works with fresh, colorful and seasonal ingredients that make the cuisine of highest quality!

You can also rely on Carpe Diem to handle any aspect of a successful event from rentals to decorations and centerpieces. All you have to do is make selections! We will orchestrate set up and delivery.
