    If I could give 10 stars I would!

    Jen Gaughan and the team at Cuisine and Co were absolutely amazing! Catering from our garage for our daughter’s wedding in our backyard, they somehow made everyone feel as if they were dining in a 5-star restaurant! Every bite, from the passed hors d’oeuvres, to plated dinner and homemade ice cream sandwiches was delicious! Jen not only managed the team to create such delicious food, along with our wedding planner, she coordinated all of our rentals – which was an extensive list since this was in our backyard! We needed everything and she was able to get it all here! We can’t thank Jen and her team enough for helping to create our daughter’s perfect wedding day!

    Amazing Food and Incredible People

    Jen and her team at Cuisine and Company played a huge role in our wedding at the Chrysler Museum! Jen worked tirelessly to help us put together the perfect menu. We leaned on her for advice on everything from drinks to tablecloths. On the day of the wedding, Jen and her team were so attentive. The ceremony and reception were both held in Huber Court, and I’m still in disbelief how quickly and flawlessly they transformed the space! To top it all off, the food was amazing! Our guests are still raving about the mac and cheese.

    Cuisine and Company was Awesome!

    We used Cuisine and Company to cater our daughter’s wedding last weekend in Sandbridge Beach. I cannot say enough about Jen Gaughan, the Coordinator, and her entire crew that worked at the wedding. Jen came out the day before to ensure everything would be perfect. She handled every detail of how many plates, glasses, silverware, tables, etc. we needed. Everything was delivered a day before the wedding and was picked up the Monday after the wedding.
    The food was prepared on site and was delicious! Some of our favorites were the Crispy Asparagus Spears, Piquant Chicken, Bourbon & Brown Sugar Beef Tenders, and Mini Twice Baked Potatoes. They handled every detail for us, helped set up the beach wedding, and even took down the pergola we had set up so we could enjoy the after wedding festivities.
    The staff was so helpful and professional in everything they did. The serving of the food at the tables around the pool was spectacular and they promptly refilled the hot food as needed. We worried about nothing and if we did, Cuisine and Company had already thought of it and fixed it.
    If you have an event that you need a caterer, Cuisine and Company is the way to go!

Director

Hometown: Las Vegas, Nevada

Background: My career in events began in 2005 working for Clark County on their local concert series and music festivals such as Warped Tour and the Renaissance Fair. Having fallen in love with the event industry I took a position at Mandalay Bay as a Catering Manager, taking over their social, corporate and entertainment events. From there my family and I relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area where I started working for the Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, as a Senior Meetings and Special Events Manager. It was there where I began to hear from my clients about amazing events they had attended in different San Francisco museums, concert halls, and private estates in wine country. Having piqued my interest I joined the team at Paula LeDuc Fine Catering and Events as a Senior Event Manager where I refined my skills in the art of catering fine dining events at amazing locations and historical venues in the Bay Area.

About Me: I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. I have been married to my husband for 16 years and we have 2 kids and 4 dogs. After living in California for the last 7 years we've relocated east to the Virginia Beach area. I love going to the beach and having fun adventures with my family!
