    About Us

    FriFri Catering’s owners, Manu and Titta, draw on culinary traditions from across Italy

    We were raised in Italy and draw on a range of regional cuisines handed down through the generations that we perfected in the “old country”. We also integrate the modern influences shaping today’s Italian culinary scene. In all cases, we deliver same top quality and authenticity as if we were serving our own families.

    Hi, I’m Manuela. My passion for food, wine, catering and hospitality was awakened as a young child who loved desserts, and I would prepare them whenever I wanted to relax. Influences of great women in my family passed down Piedmontese and Tuscan traditions into my recipes. Cooking course certificates and voracious reading of the classic cooking books complement my knowledge, always updated by the latest magazines and blogs. Now I interpret classic family and Italian recipes with a contemporary and healthy accent–though without compromising the authenticity, flavors, colors and taste of Italian cuisine. I constantly experiment and innovate in cooking. My family and close friends are always the first to taste my creations, and never hold back their comments!

    Hi, I’m Titta. I grew up in Apulia, the southern Italian region known for its green vegetables, fish and cheese. There were five of us in the family, though at lunch or dinner time we could never predict how many table extensions we would add to host the guests joining us. Grandmother began early for the Sunday meal where everyone had a role in preparing, cooking, or setting the table. We then sat down to talk, laugh and even have a heated discussion. I continue to be fascinated how the memory of family and cuisine shaped my personality. I learned to prepare simple and inventive dishes, and always find the chance to vary the classic recipes and always end up with something delicious. The secret is simplicity plus a careful selection of ingredients that are fresh and in season. Our Mediterranean cuisine may have circled the world but I am convinced it remains the best in all senses.
