Gourmet Pizza Company Aqua e Grano Launches Open-Kitchen Experience to New York
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York City, NY, November 2, 2021 – Inspired by the events of the pandemic, New York-based gourmet pizza catering company Aqua e Grano is bringing community back with the launch of its innovative open-kitchen experience to homes and businesses across the New York City region.
Fredrick Bijou, the founder and CEO of Aqua e Grano, has mastered the concept of bringing the complexities of a pizza cookery into a home, business, or social gathering space. “During the pandemic, we lost that sense of community, with people separated and quarantined from each other. Now, we want to bring that back to them,” said Bijou.
Aqua e Grano, which means “water and wheat” in Italian, exemplifies the art of gourmet pizza with an added flair. All the food preparation is done in front of the guest, bringing the open-kitchen concept to homes and businesses. The pizza is a cross between Neapolitan and New York styles, using only fresh, top-shelf ingredients such as double zero flour, homemade pressed mozzarella, and wild-fermented sourdough.
Bijou prides himself on both quality and his approach. “Pizza is usually seen as street food, a quick, inexpensive item. We’re trying to change the way people see it,” said Bijou, a seasoned hospitality professional with over 15 years of experience in some of New York City’s finest restaurants. “Pizza is usually a countertop service, but we’ve taken that to the next level. The amount of work that goes in behind the scenes ensures that our guests enjoy great food and every minute of the ultimate pizza experience,” said Bijou.
The company offers buffet and family-style packages, as well as a passed hors-d’oeuvres package. Add-on items include cheese boards, salads, crudités, roasted vegetable platters, arancini, crostinis, focaccia bread, and desserts. Featured highlights include the popular Mediterranean Pizza and Biscoff Tiramisu Dessert Pizza.
There are also plated dinner packages suitable for more formal occasions. Catering is available in any indoor/outdoor space and for all types of events, including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, corporate events, bar/bat mitzvahs, engagement parties, children’s parties, bridal and baby showers, and you can check out the catering menu online. For the inspired foodie, pizza-making classes are available.
