  • Pre-“dirtied” apron;
  • Entrées and sides in baking dishes or pots;
  • “Dirtied” cookware (colander, pasta pot, knives of assorted sizes, wooden spoon, cutting board, etc.), cooked noodles, extra tomato sauce, chopped tomatoes and garlic for display;
  • Elements for a romantic table setting: i.e. beautiful serving dishes, placemats, plates/bowls, glassware, cutlery, candles (with lighter);
  • Bottle of wine hand-chosen by our Sommelier based on your dinner selections.

Or for those who just require the take home meals to be heated and plated, the price is $120.
