    I've known Chef Alexa and Sam since they were teenagers working in the family catering business. During this time, I've been fortunate to enjoy their service and foods. My favorites are the ones on the Chef's Table spread. I gorged on the banh mi and candied bacon at their unveiling of it. I can't wait to share it with my customers at an upcoming open house. If you want to impress, I highly recommend Artisan Foodworks for catering. Easy to work with and delicious!

      Dan, Thank you very much! Can you believe that 30 years ago we started working for Dad in Lemleys' Catering? We appreciate that our family has been serving you since before that! You and your group are awesomely good eaters that we enjoy. You always make it a good time. We look forward to your open house!

      This is was such a wonderful experience from start to finish! The customer service and professionalism was outstanding! The food is wonderful! The price is so reasonable and quality is fabulous! They did a wonderful job on my daughters reception! There was no doubt in my mind that I would be using them to cater my reception in April. I will continue to use them in the future! THANK YOU! ARTISAN! Sincerly Melissa Nugent

    About this pro

    Chef Alexa, her wife Samantha, and the entire team believe that "food is love" and treat each of our events as a way to show that. We provide delicious, farm to table catering. We do all aspects of off-premise catering from drop-offs to served action stations. Unlike many caterers, we prepare foods on-site (when service staff is ordered) with our mobile and field kitchens for the best taste and food safety. Here are some of Chef Alexa's accomplishments: • Competitor in the 2016 World Food Championships. • Winner of the 2016 INDYCOOKS FOR THE ARC • Winner of both "Best Overall" and "Best Sweet Dish" at the 2016 Chicago Bacon and Beer Classic! So proud to win the grand prize against 40 of Chicago's finest chefs. • Recipient of the 2016 James Beard Foundation Rhone Rangers Grant • Finalist in the Chef’s Taste Challenge Farm to Table Cook-Off to be held in New Orleans (They named Chef Alexa as one of the Top 10 Farm to Table Chefs in the USA). • Grand Champion in the American Dairy Association Indiana Ultimate Macaroni and Cheese Cook-Off 2015. We really enjoy bringing delicious, hand crafted food to our clients and their guests. It's an obsession--we live and breathe food and drink. When we're not working, we're experiencing new flavors that we can't wait to share with you. Our company's mission statement is to "make people happy through gourmet food and beverages." That's not easy--but it is worth it.

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        We offer all-inclusive menus with different styles of food and service that can be personalized by selecting from delicious options.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        When working with new customers, we like to find out your personal style so that we can tailor our menus to best show off your good taste.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        Chef Alexa grew up working in the family restaurants and catering business. My family jokes that I was born with a knife in one hand and a glass in the other.
