For the past couple of months, Chef Owner DeAnna Germano, of Chef4Rent, has been contributing her wonderful, original recipes to our CSA newsletters and blog. We thought it was about time to properly introduce her to all of you! We first met DeAnna at a farm-to-table event, and we immediately hit it off. Through this initial interaction, we learned about her business and how she’s using our CSA veggies to bring fresh, prepared meals to customers in the area. After 11 years working in professional kitchens all over NY state, DeAnna started her own company, Chef4Rent, 2 years ago, offering everything from wedding and special event catering to educational classes. Her most popular service by far, though, has been meal delivery. Working with farms like ours, DeAnna delivers prepared meals featuring her original recipes directly to her customers on a weekly basis. The best part is that she can customize the menu to fit any nutritional needs, dietary restrictions, or preferences. Imagine coming home after a long day at work to a meal that is local, economical, sustainably-sourced and prepared by a professional chef! What a dream!
