Meet Chef Arnaldo and Crew -- The Team Making Waves At The Alpha Delta Pi House at the University of Illinois

Meet Chef Arnaldo and Crew -- The Team Making Waves At The Alpha Delta Pi House at the University of Illinois


The sisters of #AlphaDeltaPi at the #UniversityOfIllinois may never go out to eat ever again (may be exaggerating just a little) as long as Chef Arnaldo and his fine team of creative minds are in the kitchen working up fine-dining-quality food for the lucky women of the chapter. 

 

What's all the hype about? How about homemade sushi prepared by a skilled trade artisan or Fresh baked breads served almost daily, or how about tender pork loin smothered in exotic spices and herbs. Is your mouth watering yet?

Read on for a very brief blog about Chef Arnaldo and his crew!

Thanks, -Tiffany Square

Now situated in North Carolina cooking for 50+ young fraternity brothers at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house in beautiful Chapel Hill North Carolina, the next step for Gary is to become a Master Chef and he is holding himself to it.
