Introduction
The Home Kitchen specializes in upscale American cuisine; whether it is an intimate dinner party, backyard BBQ, large gathering, or wedding. We use premium ingredients to ensure delicious food and an unforgettable experience! My passion has always been food and cooking. I love coming up with unique recipes with fresh ingredients. Food is love and I love expressing myself through my menu. I am a self-taught chef, starting in my first restaurant at the age of 15. My dream was to always have my own catering company and so The Home Kitchen was created.

My wife and I hired Mary and her team to cater our 60-person outdoor wedding this September and she was amazing to work with. The options she gave us for dinner were much more interesting than you'd see at a normal wedding (chicken picatta, red-wine braised short ribs and eggplant parm for dinner!!!) and she was flexible and helpful during the menu-creation process. She was also very transparent about the price and worked within our budget without trying too add more to the bill or upsell us on different options. She was also happy to accomodate a couple of our vegan guests with their own personal plates. On the day of the wedding, Mary was professional and was able to create a feast in our tiny little kitchen. Her team was friendly, funny, and a pleasure to work with. Most importantly, Mary's food was delicious. From the passed appetizers to the buffet dinner to the wedding cake and dessert, all of our guests raved about how tasty the food was and how it far exceeded their expectations of "wedding food." I would hire Mary again in a heartbeat for any event and would encourage anyone considering working with her to do it before someone else does!

We had a wonderful evening celebrating my moms 70th birthday because of chef Mary and her assistant cara. We could enjoy catching up with our family and not worry about a thing. She is responsive, accommodating, and the food was delicious!!!! I would highly recommend her and use her again!

Mary catered a 30th birthday/bachelorette dinner for my sister’s bachelorette party and I can’t recommend her enough! She spoke with me on the phone when we were planning the menu and knew exactly what we were looking for. She prepared an incredible 4 course meal with appetizers, salad, main course and dessert. Each course was perfectly prepared and absolutely DELICIOUS! Not only was the good amazing but Mary was so efficient and left the kitchen perfectly clean and started the dishwasher. Thank you Mary - this truly was the highlight of the weekend!
