She did it all …

This very professional lady is amazing!  She put together a complete repast for over 150 folks coming to Tryon to celebrate the life of my husband.  She did it all herself, cooked it, presented it, and cleaned up.  I will be forever grateful for the fact that Patricia is the wonderful woman she is, and I can call her a friend.

A consummate professional …

When I phoned Patty for the S. family, I told her that Mrs. S. wanted “someone who would do it all, from the food, to the service, to the clean-up,” for a wedding rehearsal dinner.  As we spoke about the layout of the evening, Patty asked a variety of questions that clearly indicated she is a consummate professional.  Patty not only “does it all”, she does more, suggesting an Italian dinner, the twinkly lights, as well as helping to design the romantic, charming ambiance.  Mrs. S, who was greatly impressed with the elegant meal, the service and the evening’s experience, said, “It’s such a pleasure working with a pro.”


It’s not a job for Patty. It’s her passion …

Patty is one of a kind.  When our family of 16 came to visit from New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington, Patty and Michael delivered a gorgeous brunch prepared by Patty, complete with a stunning bouquet of flowers one morning and then catered an amazing party for 60 two days later!  That her meals are delicious, thoughtfully planned and beautifully presented is of course true, but what sets Patty apart is her attention to detail and the love and care that she brings to her craft.  It’s not a job for Patty.  It’s her passion, and it shows.

Caterer extraordinaire …

Huge kudos to Patty Compton, caterer extraordinaire, who got rave reviews for her box lunches at the Tryon Rolling Art Car, Truck, and Motorcycle show. The sandwich wraps and sides prepared with ultra-fresh ingredients were amazingly priced with a thought to packaging being totally recyclable to boot. We satisfied over 100 people that day. I highly recommend Patty’s catering services for your party, event, or family meals at home.

Such a pleasure to work with …

Chef Patty was such a pleasure to work with during the preparations for our Film Festival Gala. She provided us with a wonderful assortment of beautiful hor devours. We would highly recommend Chef Patty to anyone looking for a personal chef or to cater an event.
