Here are a few sample menus to give you an idea of my cooking style. Any of the menus can be made vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, kosher, gluten-free, or nut-free. Just ask. I'm also more than happy to work together to come up with a unique menu for your occasion. For more photos and cooking inspiration, follow my instagram @lenaelkousy, and check out my supper club.
