Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I refuse to believe that catered food must be anything less than what diners expect from the best restaurants: thoughtfully sourced, seasonal, technically advanced, comforting, and delicious. Welcome and my name is Allyson Harvie. After spending almost 15 years in Michelin star restaurants all over the United States I finally came back to the greater SACRAMENTO area to share my passion and skills of food and hospitality. Which is why I choose Notre Ferme as the name for my business, meaning “our farm or farm house in French. I will bring a unparalleled service to your event from start to finish whether you are hosting in your home, your office, or event venue. Whichever it is I will strive to make your entire event experience as stress free and seamless as possible. Every event begins with a tailored proposal written by myself (the chef) and planners to realize your unique vision by taking full advantage of the incredible bounty of what surrounds us from local farms, to ranches and fisheries. I uphold a restaurant and hospitality style approach to catering: menus reflect the current culinary landscape; and food that begins with best products and a total commitment to sustainability. With years of experience working at the top positions at the most notable Bay Area restaurants and a passion for food philosophy I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

I have no words to describe how amazing our experience was with Allyson. My family adheres to a strict Kosher diet and we decided to hire a private chef for the Passover holiday. On top of the Kosher dietary restrictions, Passover presents its own restrictions in terms of what we can and can’t eat. For Allyson, this was a completely new experience and she exceeded all expectations. She is smart, attentive, and meticulous to detail. After we explained the rules, she understood exactly what to do (and what not to do) and adapted accordingly. Allyson navigated the complexities of our strictly kosher kitchen with great care, displaying a sense of true respect for (and sincere interest in) the rules to which we adhere. Aside from cooking delicious food, Allyson picked up produce everyday to ensure our meals were fresh and nutritious. Shopping based on our dietary restrictions is no trivial task. Allyson kept in close contact to ensure all the ingredients were permissible. Her culinary creativity shined even while operating under our strict guidelines. Allyson spent considerable time and effort planning our menu. She mixed personal requests with creativity and expertise making every meal unique and delicious. She was extremely adaptable to switching things around and always open to suggestions. Allyson is a seasoned chef who demonstrated an ability to mix flavor with culture. Even recipes she attempted for the first time tasted as if she had been making them for years. Allyson is extremely personable with a cool and calm demeanor. Her friendliness, authenticity, and genuine nature created an immediate bond with my family. Although we only had her for two weeks, she became a special part of our family. She is great with kids and has a positive energy that is contagious. Allyson was extremely responsive (even after-hours) to answer any questions we had. Even though the two weeks are over Allyson will always have a special place in our hearts (and stomachs!). I strongly recommend Allyson and would gladly welcome the opportunity to work together again in the future.

Allyson and her team came to our place for my husband’s 40th birthday, and I gotta say it’s the best gift I could have every thought of ! We were 7 guests, on the patio of our tiny house, Allyson managed to cook a perfect meal in such a limited space ! The ingredients were fresh, the menu was exactly what my husband likes to eat, she replied very quickly. She even brought printed menus and a couple of surprises, she made a nice evening become an unforgettable evening. The drinks were really fresh and all handcrafted as well Believe me Allyson, you will be back in the tiny !

Amazing! I can’t say enough good things! Michelin quality chef whose food is on par with the kitchen and is absolutely a pleasure to work with. This will be the only company I use for any catered events moving forward. Thank you Allyson for making our night, you are so very talented!

We were originally planning a birthday/new job celebration for 10 people, but when Covid-19 spiked again we had to scale it back to a dinner for two. Allyson never blinked. The food she prepared was exquisite. We were hoping and longing for a fine meal since lockdown started and she more than delivered. She was on time, professional, and incredibly delightful to have in our home. Notre Ferme is now our new go to when we need a fine dining fix in or out of lockdown.
