About Teri

Hi. I’m Teri Smolens, the owner and chef, offering my catering service in Humboldt County since 1996.

I have been cooking professionally since 1977 in various capacities and business enterprises on both the East and West coast. Working with food has been a big part of my life. Growing on the East coast (PA, MD, & DE) I have fond memories of many weekend gatherings with music and food, lots of community theater cast parties, and holidays complete with good food and entertaining ideas. Catering was a natural road to take to combine my love of cooking and entertaining, an outlet for creativity, and a means of income. I feel very fortunate to be able to make a living doing what I love! 

My mission

My mission is to make you look good! When you book me to cater your event you will be guaranteed loads of compliments on the food and my friendly, effiicient and accommodating staff. 

Custom catering a perfect fit

I love providing outstanding food, beautifully presented, and planned with your event in mind.
