Chef/Owner, Della Terra Catering
JoAnne Morton works very closely with all her clients to create their image of an ideal menu. Custom menus allow her creativity to remain strong and is what keeps her clients coming back. Her culinary imagination is endless and she truly interprets her craft as a labor of love. Food history, sustainable agriculture and supporting local farmers & industry are all very important to her.
Once graduating from the French Culinary Institute in New York City, JoAnne’s professional experience began at such fine city dining establishments as Kittichai, Mario Batali’s ‘Babbo’, and Trump Grill. Her event catering experience began with Above the Salt Catering in Franklin Lakes, NJ, where she gained exposure to producing events in the Bergen County area. Leaving NJ to become a personal chef in NYC, JoAnne gained success throughout Manhattan with several private clients who quickly opened the door to full event catering.
Before starting Della Terra Catering, JoAnne owned and operated Pane ed Acqua Catering, where she gained a strong grounding in the metro area’s catering arena. Since that time, JoAnne’s creativity and involvement in the local community has built Della Terra Catering & Events to another level in the events arena.
Her extensive work has been featured in The New York Social Diary, The Record newspaper, 201 Magazine and on Eyewitness News.
