"Allie brings the magic.  She’s a real life pixie in the world of entertaining.  Just when you thought a Blood Orange Cardamon Liqueur Sparkling Punch with delicate slices of kumquats couldn’t be any more fabulous, she throws in floral ice cubes she made after foraging the night before.  Allie can’t help but take in the setting around her and incorporate its natural beauty into the spreads that she prepares.  Her food is a complete sensorial feast - so beautiful that you feel you might be in a dream and so delicious that you’re afraid to take the last bite.  In Allie’s world, opportunity for creativity abounds - she can’t help but take you on a magical ride from the moment she dances through the venue on a site visit to her laughter in the kitchen while prepping and her big smiles at the end.”

“Allie is a marvel.  She is a talented and imaginative chef, artist and event planner, who creates beautiful and innovative dishes.  Allie uses fresh, local, colorful, in-season ingredients to feature in her menus and to dazzle guests.   We have had Allie and her team create several, stylish and delicious meals for us and our guests, in our home.  She’s easy to work with and has great organizational skills.  She is certain to “wow” you and your guests!”

“We have hired Allie to cater several dinners for our company, Barrel Associates International, over the last few years and she always exceeds expectations.  The culinary and wine industry exposure she received growing up in a local Napa Valley wine family, combined with her professional culinary, winery and event planning experience/education, make her the perfect person for this business.  Her professionalism, menu creativity, food quality and presentation are second to none.  As a local business, we particularly value her farm to table approach which allows her to both support local vendors and provide the freshest and best ingredients possible. 

 Allie constantly goes above and beyond – whether that be customizing a dessert when we celebrate a special occasion, selecting a wine that has meaningful ties to our group, or adding personalized touches on our menus and place cards.  It never ceases to amaze me that her food doesn’t just taste good, but is worthy of the front page of a food magazine!”

“Time spent working with Allie is always full of laughter and exquisite, gorgeous food. Her shared obsession for organic, local produce makes her one of my favorite people with whom to cook and eat. She finds a way to put a special touch on everything that she makes and consistently sources the finest ingredients available.”
