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.

Yolanda was fantastic! I arranged for brunch on Sunday for my sister’s bachelorette and Yolanda was great giving me a full menu to choose from with clear prices. She arrived on time and worked quickly setting everything up while also taking her time to make a wonderful presentation. The lox especially was cut so thin and tasted delicious!

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.

Details: Birthday or anniversary party • Cocktail hour or hors d'oeuvres • Dinner • Barbecue • Mexican or Latin American • American - formal • Mediterranean or Middle Eastern • Buffet • Yes, full service • Home • Yes, full kitchen • 20 - 29 guests • Serving and warming equipment • Standard (basic ingredients)

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.

Details: Regular meal • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • American - casual • Southern • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • 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 20% on all services provided. 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 their 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.
