They specialize in providing high quality dishes using both fresh and local ingredients with uncommon flair. They cater to local events, corporate affairs and weddings and prepare custom specialty pastries and one-of-a-kind wedding cakes. Heather and her team have competed in the Gold Medal Plates Regional Qualifier for the National Culinary Championships in 2018, then again in the newly branded Great Kitchen Party in 2018.
