Dear Gino,

Thank you so much for the beautiful presentation and quality of the food you provided to Tangram Interiors for our Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting. We were truly treaded like Royalty. The President of Tangram, Mr.Joe Lozowski, particularly enjoyed the freshness of the Smoked Salmon canapé. Gino's Cara received rave reviews from all of our guests.

Once again, thank you for caring and professional presentation. You truly went Beyond Our Expectations.

My husband and I recently attended a private party where Chef Gino planned and prepared the evening's menu for our hostess. The tables were filled with hors d'oeuvres, seafood, salmon, and chocolate desserts -- all of them absolutely delicious and pleasing to the eye. The presentation of the epicurean delights, alone, was beautiful. I would definitely book this private chef for all your events, both large and small. As for our hostess: She left the preparations in the capable hands of the Chef and enjoyed her guests in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere!

I highly recommend Master Chef Gino for a private dining experience. Recently we had the pleasure of dining at Gino’s Cara. The quality and presentation of the gourmet food was outstanding! Master Chef Gino’s pacing of the meal courses was ideal. We had time to savor and enjoy every course. As Master Chef Gino is also a fully accredited sommelier, the wine choices were carefully selected resulting in perfect food pairing. His worldwide breadth of culinary expertise stems from his extensive experience from around the world which is reflected in the range of menu options available. At Gino’s Cara you will be pampered with 5 star service as you indulge in culinary delights!!

At the ask of sounding the I exaggerate slices of perfection, clouds of chocolate! I am ashamed for what I have eaten in my life. Such love and care. The perfect gin & yang. How welcome I have felt, at home and how elated to have sampled a menu so delicate, ballsy and sexy. Thank you.

All my love,

Omigoss~! Those are the real thing, the European light pastry with the real cream inside and the dark chocolate drizzled on top, and not sweet, just perfect. Instead of those heavy custardy things you find everywhere. The ultimate cream puffs~!!

- SIMPLY A SHOW STOPPER - One week post Oscars' and what's the Buzz? Gino's Cara, who served as the Master Chef to a star studded Oscar Night Soiree held at the Panoramic Home of the Holmes'. Ginos' passion glistened with a melange of Oscar inspired flavours. He surprised us with delicate appetizers, palate teasing dishes along with keeping up with the Sin City theme; the desserts were to lust for. Gino's Cara was nothing short of SUPERB, Top Shelf. Thank you Gino for a Sensation evening!!
