On a catering crusade with a vengeance
LAKE IN THE HILLS – Tim Vinci and Nick Iodice are on a mission of vengeance with their new catering and lunch-order business.
As the partners of VINDICE Recipes put it, they are out to "avenge the palates of the world that have been wronged by tasteless, commercialized foods that promise flavor, but fail to deliver."
From their homemade Italian sausage to a mobile wood-burning oven and grill, the friends hope to deliver. The name "vindice," the Italian verb for "avenge," also happens to be a combination of Vinci's and Iodice's last names.
The duo says their plan – to make exciting, flavorful food that pleases a lot of people rather than bland food that pleases everyone – will be a success.
"We both got fed up and let down by what was out there," Vinci said.
Vinci and Iodice on Monday morning walked through the industrial unit they moved into in June. They were preparing for a Tuesday kickoff of taking lunch orders, choosing two menu items each day for customers to choose from. Among their building clientele is the other occupants of the industrial park, which is not near many eateries.
They describe their food as "traditional fare" from wood-oven pizza and stromboli to broasted chicken and other menu items, not all of it Italian.
