Owner / Director of Catering

Brooke Greer

Brooke was raised in other parts of Texas, but she’s been in Austin long enough she prefers to say, “I’m from Austin.”

She’s been in restaurant and catering for close to 10 years and loves to talk weddings. She has a special gift with brides… (patience) and especially if it involves a pig roast and some paté.

Brooke loves cookbooks, starting knitting projects, hosting friends for Thanksgiving, shopping for junk, shopping for pretty things, drinking rosé & pretending to learn French.

Angela Verdina

Angela is a light hearted, easygoing gal with an amazing attention to detail. A native Texan she’s in the know about an array of local venues, vendors and event planners; making her an invaluable asset to our sales team.

Baking is her true passion and her salted Nutella cookies are a staff fave. On occasion she’s been asked to step into the kitchen to make (just a few hundred) desserts. Seriously. She’s that good!

Executive Chef

Freddy Diaz

Aspiring chemical engineer turned chef, Freddy hails all the way from El Paso where he grew up watching his grandmother cook in the kitchen. Her influence inspired his love for bold flavors and colorful presentation.

When not in the kitchen you’ll find him fixing up his new home or spending time with his newborn baby girl.

Sous Chef

Joseph Sukhendra

Born and raised in New Zealand and quite the word traveler, Joseph brings an eclectic culinary point of view to the kitchen which he uses to create thoughtful seasonal menus.

He’s a diehard rugby fan (go All Blacks!) and has a healthy love for house made ricotta, or “ricotter” as he calls it. Gotta love that New Zealand accent!

Kitchen Operations

Staci Thavirat

Born in Oklahoma, raised in California and residing in Austin, Staci has always enjoyed mixing things up. She started with us as an office assistant and quickly took on other roles to keep things interesting. Now you’ll find her in the kitchen helping streamline operations.

When not at work she’s most likely scouring the city for a good bowl of noodles or enjoying time at home with her husband and two cats; a modern family.
