Want to Learn How: Tricks of the trade...catering, that is. Hoping to get some insider tips from the pros and learn new and innovative ideas on how to get people to hire me for their party.
Occupation: Graphic Designer
Graphic Designer by trade, turned aspiring pastry chef and caterer. However, first, I am a wife, and second, a proud mama of two young boys. My journey begins two years ago when I decided to get my feet wet in catering. Let me back up.....It all started in the small advertising office at my previous job where three of my co-workers and I created one of the best quesadillas ever, inspired by a version I once ate while living in Mexico as a young girl. How the idea of creating a catering business came about is still a blur. All I remember thinking is how great it would be to plan parties, cook and get paid for all of it. Don't get me wrong, I have hosted many great dinner parties before and cooked all the food for them (I like to enjoy the fruits of my labor). However, while cooking for a crowd of strangers is no different, it is quite the nerve-wrecking experience, and then of course add the fear of someone getting sick and suing you afterwards...yikes! In a nut shell, I am here for the same reason as you....passion and love for food! While my business is off to a slow start, I intend to finish pastry school and see where that takes me. In the mean time, I hope money will start growing on trees so that I can start a small sandwich shop!
