Promo Show Overview

How The Show Works...

Andy prepares a few of the items from the all Italian menu from the stage while he sings to your clients. After each food demo, the courses are presented in a progressive manor until the whole meal is served. The menu is a four course feast and can be such items as a pre-set antipasti of crostini with roasted garlic, caramelized onions, and roasted eggplant, a special salad of toasted walnuts with fennel and sweet oranges over arugula, an entree of chicken Piccatta, Scaloppini, or Marsala, and or a Sicilian Bracioli, (rolled beef) with a home made red sauce over creamy Polenta, and Andy's Nona's Ricotta cheesecake with fresh berries. All from his best selling cookbook!

Andy works with your caterer and chef to plan the all Italian menu. He will also suggest and work with the food and beverage team to pick a few wines that could go with the meal and truly compliment it if needed.
