Tuscan trained chef opens eatery on Main
Denese Jokela's passion for cooking began at a tender age, her father an ardent traveler and restaurant fancier, her mom a gourmet chef.
"And both grandmas were great cooks," Jokela said.
"I'm a huge foodie. I've always had a dream to have a restaurant," she said.
