Our Catering Staff

These are our catering staff! We still enjoy seeing each other and working together in the most highly energetic and "hottest" kitchen, whether we are doing a wedding for 500, or sharing our experiences in the most creative, 7 course wine dinner for 12, or just a barbeque for family and friends.

Knowing how difficult the industry could be, we also take in culinary students and apprentice who are not afraid of hard work in hoping to gain some personal experience.

Always at your service and "Second to none..."
