Vendor of the Month: A Catered Affair

Her Business: A Catered Affair is an example of how a culinary obsession of everything delicious and romantic could turn into a business of entertainment and enjoyment. Food has always represented family, friends and fun in my life.  Since I was a child, I always enjoyed cooking, from rolling the mini meatballs for Escarole Soup to the 20 different varieties of cookies for our Holiday Cookie Platters.  I was always elbow deep in any mess I could get my hands on in the kitchen.  I took my passion of cooking to college with me when I was at James Madison University studying business. Being the only business major making homemade pancakes in the dorm rooms with a plug in double burner, was just one reason as to why I continued onto culinary school after James Madison. 
Since then I have engulfed myself in everything delicious and romantic in the culinary world including the start up of A Catered Affair. Running a catering company is a lot of work, but my job is awesome.  I dine at some of the greatest restaurants for inspiration. I visit open markets, read countless cookbooks, wine tastings, foodie blogs and I get to meet some of the most amazing people through food.  It may not be your typical 40 hour work week, but it's never a dull week. I knew catering was the perfect niche for me because I always get invited to the party! I love that I can share happy moments and great memories with people.
