Winter Recipes: Andrea Correale’s Apple Ginger Sparklers

The humble beginnings of Andrea Correale, one of the finest New York Caterers, began at the Correale family dinner table, where her mom, Marie, would teach her how a table can be beautifully prepared with creativity on any budget. Andrea started her career at the age of 16 when she created an “event staff for hire” company in Long Island. Upon graduating with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management in NYIT, she established Elegant Affairs, which is now an extremely successful off-premise catering and event planning empire!
