My name is Billy Moschella Jr., and I am a cook and pastry chef specializing in the preparation of traditional Italian cuisine as well as international baked goods and pastries. I was born and raised in Boston as part of a boisterous and colorful family of Italian-American restaurateurs, with roots stretching back to Genoa, Naples, and Sicily. I look back fondly upon the many days spent in the kitchen with my grandmothers, learning the secrets of traditional Italian cooking while Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra serenaded us on the crackly old AM/FM radio.
Throughout history, purveyors of fine cuisine, as well as those skilled in the arts of medicine and healing, have held fast to the belief that the secrets to health, happiness, and wisdom lie within the stomach, or as it has been called, ‘the seat of life’. Great indeed are the ideas generated by a small group of people gathered around a well-laid table, enjoying fine food and engaged in even finer conversation. I myself believe that wholesome, free-range, organic, and wildcrafted ingredients, when prepared with love by skilled hands and a passionate heart, have a way of bringing people together, thus strengthening the ties that bind.
As a small-scale personal/private chef and caterer, I have built out a unique model, in that I am happy to work with you to prepare meals of your choice in your own home kitchen. As part of this, I will handle all of the purchasing of food products, food preparation, meal setting, and clean up. In addition, I am also able to prepare and deliver catering-style trays of fresh baked goods and pastries, which are available for direct purchase. It’s like bringing the restaurant or the pastry shop straight to your front door!
