    About Us

    The Discerning Palate was born out of my passion for good food and the sincere belief that sharing delicious foods with people is a way to show you care for them.

    Being of Italian heritage, whose dishes have few ingredients, I've learned good ingredients are essential. As a pilot for a major airline, I've had the opportunity to travel to Europe countless times for business and pleasure. Each time I would visit markets, large and small, bringing back tastier versions of mostly everyday items. Many of these are what we at The Discerning Palate are excited to offer you.
