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.

Linda Haynes, Tryon Rolling Art Car member

“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.”

Give the Gift of Food

  • Have Patricia prepare a meal to be delivered right to their door.
  • Have Patricia prepare an assortment of meals that can be conveniently stored or frozen.

When my sister arrived bearing a gift cooler full of Patty’s magic, I felt the love. It was a time my husband and I needed a little support, not a lot of the extra work that can sometimes arrive with houseguests. Incredibly delicious, well thought-out meals were packaged for days. Everything labeled, what dish went with what, how to cook, what could be stored or frozen for later. The menus were extremely well considered since we each have different dietary needs. She still managed to plan inventive cohesive meals that we could eat together. I know Patty also does catering and I would use her in a second if I lived nearby. Her food is complex and surprising and comforting all at the same time. As a gift, meals from Patty was one of the nicest and most considerate I have received.
