April Luncheon – Featuring Chef John Croatti

April 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$25.00 - $30.00

Join us this month for an AMAZING cooking demonstration and lunch provided by chef John Croatti.

This month, we’ll meet at Star Power in Southlake (address below).  In addition to the demonstration and lunch, we will provide complimentary wine. Do NOT miss this one, ladies! What a great way to get energized before gearing up for Art in the Square!


Chef John Croatti, a Boston native, moved here to Texas in 2013.  He brought a little of his Boston accent and a whole lot of passion for great food.  John opened an Italian Pasta store called Pasta Etc., right out of college, eventually growing it into a small chain of 3 stores and adding a fine dining restaurant featuring a fusion of classic and cutting edge called Berkeley Grille. It was then John started sharing his love of food by teaching cooking classes.

Raising a family and running a restaurant group got to be a little too much, so he sold the restaurants and started a Catering company and a TV show called Grill Seekers, where he was able to blend his passion for Boston Sports (please don’t hate) with cooking and tailgating. After 27 years of cooking, catering, teaching and TV shows, John’s wife (sorry ladies, he’s taken) had a job opportunity that brought them to Texas.  John was ready for a change, and while he misses his friends and family, he loves Texas and the opportunities here for him and his family. He likes to say I spent my first 47 years in Boston, then I got here as fast as I could!

John teaches classes at Sur La Table in Southlake, and also offers catering, cooking classes, and interactive dinners in private homes.  All the fun of dining out at the Chef’s Table, right in your own kitchen!!

John will be joined by his good friend and fellow Chef, Kent Scroggins of Oh Balls! Food Truck. The ONLY Meatball Truck in Texas! Kent specializes in not your everyday meatball combinations, featuring and edgy mix of classics like his “Mamma” smothered in melted mozzarella, fresh herbs and Parmigianino Reggiano,  his “Cojones” glazed with a TX Whiskey BBQ sauce and “Wax on, Wax off” featuring Ponzu, wasabi aioli and sesame.

Give either of them a shout if you want to try something different for your next event!!

OR have them BOTH for an event no one will ever forget!!
