a flying italian
feedback from May 2010:

Carlo we just wanted to say how much we enjoyed your cooking and we have had nothing but compliments from our friends. the evening was a huge success and we were all very impressed. the canapes were delicious,... the linguine with cream of courgettes and squid was sublime and i lost count of the praise for the sirloin. we are so pleased as the evening just went brilliantly and thanks again.

Welcome to La Cena. My name is Carlo Albertoli and I'm your host and personal chef.

Cena is the Italian word for both supper and dinner party and it's pronounced Chayna. It is the trade name I chose to provide personal chef and catering services in Brighton, Sussex, London or wherever you might want me. It represents what I'd like to bring to your home, office or function: authentic, modern, Italian home cooking.

Authentic: I want to bring you real Italian food, so I source the best produce from the best importers and even personally import rare regional specialities otherwise unavailable in the UK.
Modern: I create my own recipes and I have adapted my palette of ingredients to include the best local produce (there's more than you might guess...)
Home Cooking: I will prepare the fantastic food that is eaten in Italian homes on an every day basis but also I will prepare a very special meal in your own home kitchen.

I can prepare a delicious Italian meal for your dinner parties and provide an exciting buffet for a special occasion.
I can come to your house for a cookery lesson. Or you might want some private cookery lessons to enjoy on your own or with a few friends

You don't even need to wait for a special occasion to celebrate, I can organize a fantastic wine tasting dinner: a night to remember spent exploring the culinary delights of Italy and its wonderful fine wines!

I cater for weddings and larger functions to provide an unique and memorable feast.

All menus are personalized according to your tastes.
Vegan, gluten free and special dietary needs are catered for.

La Cena is Authentic Modern Italian Home Cooking: delicious food to make any meal special and any special occasion memorable.
