Starting from scratch each day, Marna’s Catering’s head chef Rolando Diaz imbues each of his dishes with the culinary prowess he inherited while working at the family restaurant in his native Costa Rica. Featured in local publications such as Metromix and Maple Grove Magazine, Chef Diaz whips up zesty Caribbean dishes in equal measure with American-style comfort foods, serving seafood ceviche and fried plantains alongside chicken wings and cobb salads. Along with authentic Costa Rican entrees such as chifrijo and jerk chicken gallo pinto, Chef Diaz's specialties include the "Front Burger"—a lean-beef patty cooked with smoky chipotle peppers and topped with adobo spices, provolone, crisp bacon, grilled onions, pineapple and a tangy secret sauce whose recipe is as classified as the president's iPod playlist.
