Our Kitchen

Join us at our Chef's Table Dinners.


You know how at all the best parties everyone ends up in the kitchen? Our chef’s table parties start in the kitchen, are served in the kitchen and end in the kitchen. We feature good food from our local friends that are simply prepared and served up in a setting of white ware, buttery lamplight, jeweled rows of last week’s canning and prep tables. We invite you to come and eat with us!

Please email us to get on the list and watch our calendar page for upcoming events. We will happily book a private dinner, brunch or cooking class for you and your guests anytime! Contact us to set the date, plan a menu and prepare for a memorable evening.

With more than a decade of professional expertise and a work history that's taken me across the globe, I've got a wealth of relevant, proven end-to-end experience.

Lindsey Hubbard...

discovered her love of food growing up cooking with her grandmother. She started working in kitchens at fifteen, and decided to pursue her culinary career by attending The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park New York. While on her CIA externship at the Little Nell, in Aspen Colorado she made connections that led to her co-ownership of a bean-to-bar chocolate company. Crafting chocolate from the beans emphasized to her the importance of whole foods, and scratch cooking, which influences her methods and style to this day.

Lindsey started working at The Wandering Café in 2011 as a prep cook. She took over as the chef a year later, learning the catering business in the process. In fall of 2013 she purchased the company from Kristine Pottle. Catering is the perfect outlet to express her creativity and help clients create the perfect menu and event.

She'd be happy to take the time to talk to you about how to make your event special
