Ruffino’s Chef to Showcase Innovative ‘Louisiana Creole Meets Italian’ Cuisine at James Beard House

September 9, 2014

After his critically acclaimed debut last year, Louisiana-born Chef Peter Sclafani is gearing up for his New York City encore, where he will unveil a new cache of culinary masterpieces based on his signature Creole-Italian cuisine. The innovative style draws from Sclafani’s rich Italian heritage and a lifetime of classic Louisiana-Creole cooking.

The executive chef of Ruffino’s Restaurant in Baton Rouge and Ruffino’s On the River in Lafayette has been invited to share his talents once again at the world-renowned James Beard House in New York City. As he did last April, Sclafani will return to the elegant private dining venue as the visiting chef on Saturday, Sept. 13.
