Passion for food, passed down for generations
Andrey Kaplun was born to be a chef. He developed a passion for great cooking as a child in the Ukraine where he worked beside his grandmother Alexandra, who was a respected chef in her own right. He helped her plan and cook for all kinds of events, from family dinners to large weddings, taking in everything she taught along the way. He tried a few other occupations as a young man—but nothing compared to the joy he got from cooking the way his grandmother taught him. Bringing that great food to events in Connecticut has become his life’s mission.
Grandmother Alexandra’s food is still Andrey’s secret weapon. When she passed away in 1995, she left him her vast collection of authentic ethnic recipes — Ukrainian, Jewish, German, Polish, Italian, and more. Andrey has adapted some of them to fit American palates and lifestyles (especially those that were traditionally heavy on the lard), but his respect for authenticity and his ability to use these special recipes to create unique international menus have set him apart.
