Why I LOVE My Catering Job!

Sometimes, I just get overwhelmed by the generosity of people around me! This was definitely one of those mornings! After several crazy busy days of wonderfulness, I finally had a relaxing morning to sleep in. I had warned the goats last night that they should eat plenty of hay, as they would not be seeing me very early this morning (and, as usual, they completely ignored me!) Thus, my lazy morning started with coffee, play time with my pups, and then an email check. Imagine my delight to find the following article on the website of Two Caterers!

I have had the pleasure of working for Two Caterers since September 2010. I never imagined myself catering -- much like I never imagined myself as a butcher -- but I absolutely adore it! The people with whom I work are amazing, and the food is unbelievable! It is a pleasure to serve a product of which you truly believe in the quality. I started out as a server with Two Caterers, then began bartending, and now work as an Event Supervisor. This company is a good fit for me, because it shares my values: stewardship of the environment, connecting people with food, and supporting local businesses. It has been an exciting evolution for me to raise food, market meats, and now be involved in serving high quality meals. Two Caterers is an awesome company and I am very proud to be one of their employees!

Two Caterers is the caterer of choice for events at Jorgensen Farm, which is owned by my friend (and heroine) Val Jorgensen. Jorgensen Farm raises organic herbs, honey, and lamb. In addition, the restored barn serves as an event space. The Girasole Dinner is an annual event that celebrates sunflowers in late summer. I had the pleasure of assisting with the 2011 event, and working with the amazing Angela -- who owns Two Caterers.
