How to throw a Simple Elegant Wedding without the Stress! Hire Chef Patricia!

We had one meeting to discuss the basics and from there Chef Patricia took care of everything.

Pre wedding we had 15 people on site that Chef Patricia fed with special items while making sure everyone got samples of all the food being prepared for the Masses. My groom and his son got to taste the hand crafted Dim Sum, a Medley of Meatballs and other Gourmet treats. Post Wedding while we were having photos taken Chef Patricia made sure that the 100 or so guests snacked on Charcuterie items, Mini Tea Sandwiches, 3 kinds of Deviled Eggs and Lobster Mac n Cheese Bites! Then as the reception continued several flights of Hor d’oeuvres were passed for the guests to sample. Everything from Gyoza, Meatballs, Crab Rangoon, Egg Rolls, Jumbo Roasted Shrimp, Roasted Pork Tenderloin Skewers and more. For the Deserts a Donut and Mini Cupcake Tower was set up and there wasn’t a bite left! A post Wedding Picnic was left in the Fridge untouched and perfect for the 20 Family members left to relax and celebrate!

Such a pleasure to work with …

The Tryon International Film Festival would like to thank Chef Patty for helping create such an amazing event. It is such a pleasure to work with a chef with her professional and organizational skills coupled with her creativity. Patty came on board just 4 weeks before our event and put together a beautiful menu including Gourmet Tea Sandwiches, Roasted Shrimp with Green Goddess Dressing, 2 kinds of Meatballs, Deviled Eggs and more. In addition she created a special offering for our VIP guests that was truly a hit! We are on our fifth year and with Chef Patty’s help we were able to really elevate our festival to the next level. The feedback from many of our guests was that is was truly a elegant evening and the food was by far the best to date!

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.”


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.
