Internationally-acclaimed chef and author of multiple cookbooks. The Dinnertime Survival Cookbook brings delicious meals together in a snap. Like most of you, I wear many hats. With my husband, Greg Addonizio, I own a business in Connecticut called Aux Delices: four stores offering company-branded, prepared foods and hand-picked specialty foods, plus a busy catering arm.
Have a fridge full of staples, a family of finicky mouths to feed, and only a few minutes to get something on the table? If this sounds all too familiar, chances are you’ll find dinner and more in this can-do approach to mealtime.
Aux Délices is the brainchild of husband and wife team Gregory Addonizio and Debra Ponzek. The couple opened Aux Délices in Riverside, Connecticut in 1995. The opening was warmly welcomed by a clientèle seeking finely crafted specialty foods and freshly baked desserts.
