Linda DeSabato- Vallo Transportation with Sous-Chefs Delinda and Francesca

Since 2012, Linda DeSabato has continued to wow the tastebuds of Fine Food attendees with her delicious meatballs!

This year, Linda is joined by her granddaughters to present her perfectly plated meatballs once again. It is important to Linda to give back to the community and as the girls have grown up, she has mentored them and taught them that the way to happiness is giving.  Linda cooks in memory of Gloria D’Amico, the former Queens County Clerk and good friend.
