Introduction: Hungry For Travel takes pride in being authentic and consistent. I put my all into making your event not only special but worry free. When hired to do an event, cooking class, bartending and/or catering I make sure it is at my very best. With Christian values and a non denominational approach I am limitless. I take your dietary needs, religious background and your personal taste all into consideration when customizing your menu. Being a Culinary and Hospitality professional I enjoy the interactions and intimate settings created around the dinner table. Knowing that in that first drink or bite can turn a great evening into amazing experience. I love what I do and I am passionate about how's it's done.

Personal Chef

Yolanda was amazing! She cooked the most amazing meal for my sister’s bachelorette. All the guests said it was one of the best meals they have had, and her charcuterie board was to die for! Yolanda was very helpful in making the menu. I cannot recommend her more!

Wedding and Event Catering

Yolanda was great to talk to and fast to respond. Her sample menus sounded delicious and got you indeed hungry just reading it. We eventually didn’t use her services (or any on site chefs) as it turned out to be more pricey than thumbstack initially suggests and it was much beyond our budget - but this was the only reason to decide against it. In summary, we can’t judge the quality of her food, but the „pre-work“ was very professional and implacable.

Yolanda was an absolute pleasure to work with, from designing the menu to the execution of he meal. She was on time and delivered everything promised. Food was excellent, better than I had hoped! She left everything spotless and hardly knew sh was there. Would hire this caterer again in a heartbeat.

Chef Yolanda Lee created a beautiful dinner for our girls trip in Millbrook. She was very responsive over email and was able to accommodate two different dietary restrictions with no problems at all. Her food was delicious and she was very personable, which made our dinner even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I found Yolanda for my sisters bachelorette and she did not disappoint. Her attention to detail, delicious food, and professionalism is a testament to how much she loves her work. We all grabbed her cards in hopes we will find a way to use her again. Highly recommend!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing per person only covers the food cost. The amount of time it takes to prep and shop for food is an added expense. Normally delivery is included unless otherwise specified. When servers and bartenders are needed they are paid hourly. The cost of utensils and rentals are NOT included in your cost per person. Gratuity is usually added for parties over five which is between 18%-20%. Other pricing or arrangements can be discussed directly. I DO NOT BUY ALCOHOL** customers must provide there own alcoholic beverages for there event...

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to know what there preferences are and the type of cuisines they enjoy, it helps me to create a menu and style I know they will love. Working with the budget they have to accommodate their needs in elegance, But not taking away from the work that is put into preparing the meal. I enjoy getting to know who they are as well as what they desire for flavor.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I went to a Culinary H.S. in Manhattan NY, graduated from the Culinary Institute Of America in 2007, went on to study Szechuan cuisine in China for three weeks after graduation. I had an opportunity to cook in Thailand in 2015. Among other things I have been in almost all parts of this wonderful industry from cooking in restaurants, dishwashing, serving, bartending, catering, menu developing and much more.
