: This is my first time at this site, and I have found your comments very helpful! I am a culinary grad, worked in a restaurant kitchen, did food styling for an independent feature film, and am working at a magazine. However, I am interested in catering, but don't know when I will fully throw myself into it. I went to help a woman with her Christmas party prep recently (got the listing from school), and had an experience that was surreal. The woman starting drinking at 3pm, yelled at a worker of hers, and insulted me in a cutting and horrific manner. Nevertheless, it was an educational experience. So, do you reside in the West Coast or East Coast? I recall you owning your own catering business. I find that extremely interesting.

Glad you stopped in.

I am in Jackson TN, you?

Food styling is great work and takes talent. I have worked with a food stylist on photography and tv spots for a major restaurant chain.

I would be interested in what the catering women said to you and how she stays in business with that attitude!

What do you do at the magazine?

I do own an upscale banquet facility and catering company and have a casual division as well. I also own a non related restaurant and am a partner in a fairly large restaurant franchise chain (350 units) I enjoy these forums as my way of helping others and giving back to the industry. Most of what I know today has come from other professionals.

Networking is a great way to do business and live your life!

I would be happy to help you in any way I can. Just ask.

Blessings to you.
