About SAVA CATERING AND PERSONAL CHEF

What is Sava?

Sava (pronunciation SAA-VAH) catering was created in 2006 by Chef/Owner Lana Zimdars and is based in Littleton, Colorado.

Lana began cooking and baking since the arrival of her Easy Bake Oven! Lana comes from a long line of culinary artists on both sides of her family. Great-Great Grandma Hanson owned and operated a bakery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and her Great Grandfather Joe Vogl owned and operated a brewery in Germantown, Wisconsin. Great Grandma "Sava" Lefebre owned and operated the Frye Hotel and Restaurant in Wagon Mound, New Mexico.

Grandma Irene Zimdars learned the bakery trade from her mother and passed it on to her children and grandchildren. Grandpa Rudy Pacheco worked as a line cook at the Adams Restaurant in Rawlins, Wyoming. Lana has tremendous respect and admiration for the many generations of chefs, bakers and brew masters on both sides of her family.

Chef Lana attended Johnson and Wales University in Denver, Colorado and graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude with her Culinary Arts degree in 2005. After graduation, Lana opened her catering and personal chef business and named it after her maternal Great grandmother "Sava".

As a chef, Lana believes in involving the customer during the menu design process for the ultimate personalization of their event. Her passion for food and life begins with incorporating the finest seasonal ingredients to deliver to her clients, "style and elegance at affordable prices."

    Lana rescued us a month before our wedding after a horrific tasting. Instantly we knew we had found who we wanted to take control of our wedding catering. Honestly after twenty minutes of talking to Lana you will know you have someone special. Her brutal honesty, sense of humor and knowledge of the industry put your mind at ease. Her food knowledge and pairing options are perfect for making sure that all guests are satisfied. She comes with numerous menus and experience to create the menu of your dreams. You can be as creative as you want with only knowledgeable guidance from her. I remember looking down the head table and seeing Lana hand deliver the gluten allergy bridesmaid her food. What amazing care she showed. She went above and beyond in making sure that our wedding was exactly how we envisioned from appetizer to dessert (an awesome brownie bar with toppings!). We could not have found a better fit for our budget and are beyond thankful for Lana and her team!

    Sava catering exceeded all of my expectations! Most of the time at weddings the food is so-so. Thanks to Sava, everyone said the food was excellent and the best food they have had. They designed a custom menu for us to ensure it was exactly what we wanted. Sava also prepared a delicious spread of deserts which included a perfectly moist cake, delicious cupcakes and a variety of yummy desert bites.

    In addition to amazing food, Sava provided excellent service. The staff did not stop for one minute during our wedding. All of the staff was so kind and actually seemed happy to be catering my wedding. This was very important to me because a bad attitude by a vendor can ruin an event.

    I would recommend Sava catering for anyone! No matter what type of event it may be- wedding, birthday, family reunion, etc- I am confident that Sava catering would do an excellent job and you would be extremely happy with their service.

    Lana is simply the best. We have worked together a number of times for a variety of events and the food , service and the ease with which she does things take all the stress out of the event. You can actually enjoy yourself!
    The variety of food and presentation has people talking during and after the gathering. Lana is a joy to collaborate with.
