     ABOUT THE CHEF – Chef Anne learned early on that “great food creates great memories”.  From the time she was young, Anne’s Grandmother brought the family together every week for Sunday dinner.  She hasn’t forgotten the smells of her kitchen and watching her create the most amazing foods from simple, fresh ingredients. 

Over the years Anne’s passion for cooking and sharing her culinary creations fueled her interest in obtaining formal education to hone her craft.  After completing her training at the Art Institute’s School of Culinary Arts in Denver, CO, Anne successfully ran Anne Noto Catering, LLC for over 10 years.  Anne also directed a cooking school, served many personal chef clients, managed Garde Manger food prep for PGA golf tournaments, and spent several years in the wine industry. Anne successfully completed formal wine education classes, which has allowed her to enhance the dining experience of her clients by bringing food and wine together.

Now that she’s back in her home state of Connecticut, she couldn’t resist utilizing the farm fresh products that surround her and The First Bite was born!
