My background includes a range of catering and events experience, culinary events creation, menu development, as well as working with chefs on dinners, demonstrations, and cooking lessons. I’ve assisted with prep work, plating, and serving for gatherings large and small from dinners at the James Beard House to buffet-style get-togethers at private events and charity culinary activities.
