A Deeper Dive

Why Did You Choose to Open in Charleston?

Charleston has an eclectic mix of locals and tourists, and we have found that both are equally interested in our services. Whether you're on vacation with your family and don't feel like cooking, or you live here and want to throw that fun and fancy dinner party, we've got you covered!

Who is Your Typical Client?

Anyone who is a food and wine lover!

Does Your Business Offer Services in Other Locations Besides Charleston?

We mainly work in Charleston and the surrounding areas of Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, Folly Beach, & Kiawah Island. We love to travel though and are always interested in where our work might take us! Don’t hesitate to ask if you are interested in a location outside of the area.

Tell Us Anything Else About Your Business That Our Visitors Might Like to Know.

We are a two-woman team and care deeply about every dish we prepare. We work with as many local purveyors as possible. When we curate a menu for each client, it is unique and always seasonally and locally focused. We spend our off days researching, learning, and experimenting with different ingredients. Fine wine and food are our true passions in life.

Just for Fun!

Tell Us Your Favorite Thing(s) to Do in Charleston.

When we aren’t working, we love to cook for ourselves, and we are suckers for fine wine. We frequent Edmund’s Oast Exchange & Graft. You might just catch us there with a glass of Italian red and our nose in a book. We love to head out to the beach to relax and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere. It’s always a bonus if we can do an early delivery and hit the beach after!

Where is Your Favorite Place to Eat/Drink in Charleston?

Our favorite spot is The Royal American. They have amazing food and drinks in a casual atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. And we can bring our dogs!

What’s the Craziest Experience You’ve Had with a Client?

We were recently asked to cater a client’s birthday party at her home when her original plans were canceled because of circumstances out of her control. We had only eight hours to plan a seated dinner for 14 guests, complete with wine pairings, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dessert. With the help of my team, we were able to curate a menu, purchase provisions, and prepare the meal. The dinner was such a success, and no one was the wiser that we had made it happen in only eight hours!

Where’s Your Favorite Place to Travel Outside of Charleston?

We LOVE to travel! We spend a lot of time in Greece, Italy, and Mexico. When we stay close to home, New Orleans is at the top of the list. Anywhere that has great wine and food becomes a favorite destination spot for us. Learning about a new culture or destination through the food is always really special.
