I was fortunate to have realized my talent early in life – I have been cooking since I was 9yrs old! I started cooking for friends and family who always told me, “you should have a restaurant” but I knew that wasn’t right for me so I started a catering business. It has grown on its own into a wonderful outlet for me. I’ve also started private chef services which has been so much fun, I love it too! And, one more thing, I also teach in-home cooking classes, great for bridal showers, birthday parties for couples, kids, etc. Contact me via my Devine Catering page on Facebook, call (661) 433-4438 or email: Lizpack7@yahoo.com.
