1) Please give us a brief description of your business:
Established in 1941, Commellini Estate is a third generation venue and event restaurant. We offer a private location surrounded in the majestic trees and tranquil sounds of Spring Creek in the Dartford Valley, creating the perfect setting for weddings, corporate events, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas parties and other special occasions. We had many people request to have our menu items more frequently and thus our Frozen Product line was born.
Commellini Estate’s line of fine Italian foods carries on the tradition of Leda Commellini in 1941. Leda Began cooking for guests in her home over seventy years ago and we still prepare her recipes the same way today. Commellini Estate is proud to provide the same quality and tradition started by Leda for home use in our frozen products. All products are made from scratch and fresh frozen as not to add any preservatives.
2) What will you be offering at the farmers market?
We will be offering our fresh frozen Italian meals and sauces. We have weekly specialty lasagnas with seasonal roatating ingredients. We always come stocked with our three sauces (Leda’s Bolognes Meat sauce, Albert’s White Wine Alfredo, and Gina’s Marinara), the famous Chicken Cacciatore (which made Commellin’s famous with Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe. This paritcular dish still takes over 20 hours to create from scratch), and our Meatballs in Marinara sauce.

4) What makes your offerings unique?
Our Frozen Product Line is a tribute to Italian cuisine-modern, refined, and beautiful in its simplicity. We keep with tradition in that Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients. We prepare all items in the same manner that Leda’s Commellini did back in 1941. We never cut corners and think this reflected in the taste and quality of our product. However we will let the consumer be the judge and will be offering weekly samples at the market for everyone to try.
