Meet Chef Diego


I discovered Chef Diego at a recent dinner party.  Chef Diego is a personal chef and caterer specializing in Italian cuisine.  He hails from North Italy, and after years cooking aboard the yachts of the rich and famous (Sharon Stone and Robert Dinero to name a few), he has settled into Savannah.  I was treated to his Eggplant Parmesan…(the best I’ve ever consumed, .a pasta medley with zucchini, and a veal scaloppine with mushrooms in a white wine sauce.  All of which he will gladly show you how to prepare.  One thing he won’t share…his award winning recipe for Tiramisu…but I consider myself honored for having tried a bit.   Hungry yet?  Take a look at this spread…


If you’d like to hire Chef Diego for your own private event, let me know and I’ll put you in touch.  — Heather Young.

Does the Caribbean retreat on River Street inspire writers? Could be. One of our favorite writers, David Gignilliat, says he was scribbling on the backs of napkins to pass the time over cocktails at the Cobblestone Conch House when he got the idea for his now well-known blog, Quixotica.

Dining In versus Dining Out

Dining out is lots of fun, but so is dining in with friends and a simple but elegant meal. Nothing says Savannah and the Low Country better than Shrimp and Grits, and when you add asparagus, you’re celebrating Spring as well. Try one of our favorite recipes at:
