I come from a food family. In my family, recipes are our heirlooms. Growing up, I lived on a small family farm where we raised our own livestock, eggs and poultry, grew our own fruits and vegetables, and we were in constant contact with the foods of the seasons.
At fifteen I was given the opportunity to travel to France where I was changed forever by what I ate. It was no surprise that I looked for work in the culinary field when I returned home. Once I entered the field, I found peace in the ritual of preparation, and in the fast pace of the professional kitchen. I knew I had found my place in the world.
The bulk of my working experience has been in the San Francisco Bay Area where I discovered catering. I worked for many well known and lesser known catering companies, eventually settling as an Executive Chef for Savoy Catering.
In 2008 I began Lunch Lady Catering with upscale boxed lunches serving the Calaveras foothills. It wasn't long, however, before I returned to my true love, full scale event catering, specializing in weddings. It is my pleasure to help you create your special day and make it a delicious one!

Amazing food and great service
We did a lot of research for caterers for our wedding in Arnold California and honestly could not of been happier that we decided to go with Lunch Lady Catering on the recommendation of our wedding coordinator Erin Betts.Sent on 06/03/2019
We dealt with Kris from LLC and from the beginning she was very positive and flexible to accommodate our needs (dietary requirements, guest fluctuations and even special desserts that were off menu). Kris and her team came in and set up a full kitchen onsite, set up a bar and all the table settings.
Kris had great recommendations for our menu based on time of day and even time of year for seasonal fruits and vegetables. All of the food presented very well and tasted amazing. We had a few dietary requirements and these we no issue at all for LLC and these meals were great also.
I would highly recommend Lunch Lady Catering for any style event in the Arnold area.

YUMMY and Amazing Service
We absolutely loved having LLC cater our wedding this past June. Not only was the food amazing, but the staff was amazing as well. From setting up the morning/early afternoon before our ceremony and reception, to enjoying our dinner after we exchanged vows, LLC staff was so friendly and helpful. The food was also amazing! I am so glad that we chose LLC as our caterer.Sent on 07/25/2019

Lunch Lady Catering
Lunch Lady Catering provided all of the food for our wedding and rehearsal dinner this past weekend at Union Hill Inn. We went with her company purely off of reviews since we live out of the area & are so happy that we chose LLC. My husband & I received many compliments about the amazing food! Kris was easy to work with, responsive to any emails I sent & very accommodating. Her staff members were all professional and charming. Kris truly made the process of choosing a caterer and menu an easy one. The execution was amazing and all of the displays not only tasted delicious but looked phenomenal!Sent on 04/10/2019
Thanks again Kris & staff!

Lunch Lady Catering is an amazing catering company. Kris is easy to work with and is very creative. She can create a special one of a kind menu for your wedding day, and her staff always works hard to ensure every detail is perfect. Her food is delicious, fresh and beautifully displayed. We love working with Kris and her team at Lunch Lady Catering and the couples are always overjoyed at the food and service provided.
Kris, the owner of Lunch Lady Catering, is a top notch wedding professional. She consistently delights her clients with her creative creations and customer service. I have personal experienced her tasty bites at events I have photographed. I would hire Lunch Lady Catering in a heart beat and recommend this business to all my clients.
Best caterer in the area, by far! Kris and her staff have been catering events at our Inn for 6+ years, and they never disappoint. They are a FULL-service company, providing menu planning, set-up, clean-up, service, bartending... Kris is incredibly creative, custom-designing each event's menu based on client needs/wants. Her staff, when onsite, are professional and friendly, and very attentive to all guests' needs. Lunch Lady Catering remains our number one recommendation for catering.
