CuisinEtc’s passion for dazzling & matchless ingredients & décor has fostered the development of a unparalleled network of suppliers, atypical in its range and depth. We carefully cultivate sources of ingredients & spend many hours shopping , from the farmstand to the out of the way Indian supermarket, to insure access to the folks who grow & harvest food, be it curry & kafir lime leaves or fish that truly defines the word fresh.

This passion for raw ingredients is what drives our menus. Tonight’s menu is inspired not only by the unique ingredients available, but by the fusion of trans global cuisines. The excitement of Indian fusion paired with Jewish traditions are well represented by Jenn & Venkat’s choices for their wedding celebration. We are privileged to be able to partake in making this an incredible day of celebration for you, your wonderful family & cherished friends.

presented with much love, Lisa and Andrew, Creative CuisinEtc…..
