MMC Executive Chef John Perruna, a former restaurant owner and a graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America, and his sous-chef, Doug Giese, are diligent in their efforts to maintain the standard for fine cuisine and custom catering for which Monticello Motor Club has become known.
John’s special gift is his uncanny ability to recall each member’s favorite dish, and he welcomes most with a simple question: “The usual?”
Each morning, members are greeted with coffee and a selection of fresh pastries and bagels. Lunch is usually served buffet-style with a wide selection of ever-changing dishes, followed by John’s famous warm chocolate chip cookies. Later in the afternoon, cheese platters are put out for members and their guests to enjoy as they’re wrapping up their final track laps.
