a musical note dinner with an asian fusion flair

Last night CuisinEtc Catering and Special Events was called on to cater a  dinner in a private eastside Manhattan apartment for a  Cantors musical group.  These folks perform every week for a large audience of 300-1000 shabbat observers and are lead by their Cantor, a lovely jewish asian woman.
