This was My Great Grandfather, Barnard Finkel. He was a very successful caterer, in London, England. I believe that my love for cooking and creating beautiful tables, is directly from him. It has been in my blood, since I was a very small girl. I loved to set my mother's table, when she was entertaining. I see the same passion for delicious food and beauty, in my mother, in my grandma, who is no longer here, and in my niece, Amanda.
