Master Chef Carlo & Papa Jack

Master Chef Carlo is the owner and chef at Casalinga Italian Restaurant in Raleigh, North Carolina. Chef Carlo is well known for his superb culinary skills and warm hospitality at Casalinga, which he established 15 years ago.Casalinga is one of the most respected Italian restaurants in the triangle area and throughout North Carolina.

I have been a patron of Casalinga for the past 10 years and one day in the early fall had a business lunch meeting which was held at Casalinga. I took the opportunity to take Chef Carlo a bottle of my BBQ sauce as a gift. He immediately wanted a case of sauce which I returned with that afternoon.

Chef carlo then asked: "What else do you do?" At that point I introduced him to my catering business... Total southern food and hospitality.Chef Carlo requested that I cater his family's Thanksgiving lunch at his home. See the full menu below.
