Pasquale ottimo cameriere (e anche cuoco)…
– Silvano Marchetto, June 2012 Da Silvano Ristorante Toscano NYC

Chef Pasquale prepared an exquisite Southern Italian Seafood feast for 25 at our place in the Hamptons for Labor Day. He took care of everything from menu suggestions, sourcing ingredients, prep, cooking and left the place immaculate. The food and service were exquisite. We loved the unique grilled octopus and gigantic shrimp imported from Chef’s home town of Mola di Bari (Puglia). The veal meatballs made from scratch and Pizza Rustica al Parmacotto were sooo good! People had a blast and we plan on making WarmPalate a tradition at our place.

I hired Warmpalate to cater at my recent Holiday Party. It was very clear from the start that Warmpalate’s main goal was to ensure that my husband and I had a great time at the party. The food was delicous and the presentation of the food a joy too. On top of that WarmPalate helped with serving drinks and making sure that all the guests were well looked after. The staff was curtious and very professional, and I credit Warmpalate with making the party a success. I would highly recommend this company and I have no doubt that I will be hiring them again.

After I had the great pleasure of enjoying Chef Pasquale’s amazing Southern Italian real home cooking, he really impressed me with his amazing generosity. I asked Pasquale to donate his time as a live auction item for He was the ‘hit’ of the evening, raising significantly more money than any other item of the auction, even more than the Tiger Woods autographed golf clubs!
