Chef Deanna has been on the cutting edge of the sustainable food movement for over ten years. She started catering weddings thirty years ago with Woodstock Moveable Feast and started on her own in 2007.  Deanna is an experienced chef that serves her traditional Sicilian cuisine. She is also willing to design a menu that works for you and your taste buds. Do you want to do something great with your wedding or private event? Why not support our local organic farmers?  Chef Deanna is the only chef in area that is 95% locally sourced because we do not grow olives or salt and pepper in the Catskills, sadly. This is possible because everything is handmade, no industrial food served here.  We use the highest quality ingredients so your guests can have a truly unique experience by getting a real taste of the Catskills and you can feel good because you're supporting our local agriculture for organic food production.

our food

Our food is lovingly grown, raised and prepared by some pretty amazing women farmers in Delaware County, N.Y. Go women farmers! Most of our vegetables come from our super women farmers Madalyn Warren from Straight out of the ground farm in Roxbury, N.Y. and Ramble Bramble farm in South Kortright, NY.  Berry Brook Farm and Lucky Dog Farm are favorites also. In addition to our regulars farmers we love to frequent our local farmers markets in Andes, Hobart and Delhi along with the farm stands we find while roaming in our beautiful mountains. Our meats come from a variety of local farmers like Burn Ayr Farm in Delhi, NY ( you can stay there too) and  Fieldstone Farm in Delhi, NY. Our botanical and edible flower needs are met by Michelle Premura of Turquoise Barn.  Our vegan delights are made by the fabulous Lori Robin from Cheezehound ( my favorite treats) and desserts and breads are prepared by local bakers. We have so much cheese too! Betty Acres Farm, Dirty Girl Farm,  and Vulto Creamery are served tapas style for cocktail hour.

BOHEMIAN CHIC STYLE WITH ORGANIC FARM TO TABLE CUISINE

We do love wedding season! Our exceptional staff goes beyond what is expected to make your day, the best day! We serve our food on cast iron and vintage platters because at no point during your event do we want you to feel like your in an industrial production line. We also bring the vintage plates, silverware and mason jars, a few less things for you to worry about. Chef Deanna works with a variety of local venues, here are a few of our favorites.  Just click on the picture to check them out. 

We highly suggest a good wedding planner for your event.  The best one in the area is Kate Arel from Charmed Affair, we have worked with her many times and is proven to be a master of her art form. Tell her we said Hi!

As I begin writing this review, so too, I begin to drool — for that is the yumminess of Chef Deanna D’Angelo’s cuisine.
Chef D’s food delights the palette and tickles the soul, as if the woodland faeries themselves have joined her to invoke the pleasures of fresh, local, responsibly-sourced ingredients that she steeps in love and creativity. A meal prepared by Chef Deanna takes you beyond her expression of love, unto its own experiential realm. Express your needs, then let go, and give this gifted woman the freedom to work her magic interlaced with unimaginable pairings; always presented on an inspired eclectic assemblage of grandmother’s china.

This visionary chef’s catering is magical. Eight months later, our party guests are still talking about the gorgeous presentations with antique serving pieces, the high quality of local ingredients, and more than that, the exquisite flavors. How wonderful to have her prepare her distinctive rice balls with local goat cheese right in my kitchen! (No pre-cooking for this chef.) With a generous and friendly demeanor, Deanna shines on and on, hugging guests in the midst of running a tight ship with a helpful staff that works harmoniously and with great aplomb.

We started working with Chef Deanna last year. She is our preferred chef for numerous reasons. She is creative, professional, flexible, detail oriented, and is dedicated to using organic, local, fresh, and whole food ingredients. She offers a wide range of menus to accommodate a variety of palates and diets including traditional, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free. She fits in perfectly with our standards. She is highly sought after for her culinary skills and impeccable reputation as one of the top chefs in the Catskill area - and of course her food is amazing! We are honored and fortunate to be working with her.
— Michelle P. The Turquoise Barn, Bloomville, N.Y.
