A VERY Special Event
Fantastic food for a festive baby shower
Chef Giovanni’s tribute to a forty-year best friend
Last August, Chef Giovanni went to Tallahassee to cater a very special event. Paul Munyon, a best friend since junior-high in Tallahassee in the seventies, was about to become a grandfather for the first time! Chef Giovanni went on the road to cater the fantastic food for Paul’s daughter-in-law’s baby shower. Mom-to-be Meredith, wife of Paul’s son Patrick, was thrilled with the gifts and the dinner.
Lafayette Presbyterian Church in Tallahassee, where Paul is a member, provided their dining area and their large restaurant-style kitchen. About 50-60 people came. Chef Giovanni prepared a roasted-pepper bruschetta appetizer, mixed-green salads and trimmings, meatballs, lasagna, Oriental rice with veggies, small sandwiches with an assortment of meats and cheeses, fresh rolls, and – especially for the mother-to-be, Paul’s Daughter-in-law Meredith – a gluten-free pasta dish.
In the midst of the festivities, Paul’s big brother, Norman, made it a point to visit Chef Giovanni in the kitchen. “Great food!” he said. “Some of the best I’ve ever had!”
