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!
Elegant Affairs is now a 15,000-square-food facility in Glen Clove, New York that hosts over 800 events per year, which catered to top brands like L’Oreal Paris Academy, Ehow.com, Sam’s Club, Celebrations.com, and most recently, Lenox China. Andrea is not only famous for her fierce entrepreneurial skills and infectious personality, but also for her innovative and unique food presentations. Elegant Affairs has satisfied some of the most discriminating of palates like Mariah Carey, Kevin Spacey, Mitt Romney, Ivana Trump, and Brooke Shields.
