The Busseni Dinner - WTNZ FOX 43 Knoxville, TN

The Busseni Dinner


The Candoro 2013 Dinner series continues May 9.   “The Busseni Dinner,” is so named because it is Charles Richmond’s middle name, which reflects his mother’s Italian ancestry. The Candoro Marble building is covered floor to ceiling in marble and provides the perfect setting for an Italian evening. The upcoming Busseni dinner features the culinary talent of Chef Vincent P. Vecchione.

The Busseni Dinner is scheduled to be held outside on grounds of The Candoro Marble Building

Chef Vecchione hails from Italy, and he is not only an authentic Italian chef; He does a great job of explaining the Italian culture and meaning of each food.

“I am a philosophy cook,” explains Vecchione “I enjoy preparing food that is not only delicious, but good for the soul. My food philosophy for this special dinner is the continuing circle of life found in the land, the sea, and the sky.”

These 2013  dinners combine the history of Knoxville with flavors by some of Knoxville’s best chefs.
