  • Lisa Mandigo grew up in upstate New York in a large family. She learned to cook from her loving Italianneighbor who was a great inspiration to her. Standing on a kitchen chair, she learned to make sauce from scratch at age 4 and loved every minute of it. Every day was a new adventure in the kitchen and this is what laid the foundation of Lisa's culinary career.

    While attending college, Lisa took a part time job working in a Five-Star Restaurant. It was then that she realized that her true passion was for Food, Wine and the people who enjoyed them. Lisa then joined the Marriot in Vail, Colorado. This position enabled her to work some of world greatest Chefs and travel to several resort towns across the country, working in every aspect of the Food and Beverage Industry.

    Her extensive experience with the Marriot brought Lisa to San Diego where she has made it her home since 1988. Initially in San Diego Lisa focused her attention on the Wine Industry becoming a Wine Supervisor for a large distributor advising over 100 of the top San Diego restaurants on their wine lists and teaching wine seminars to the staff.

    To broaden her career experience Lisa took a position at the Stadium working the skyboxes at football games. This soon led to a new 6 year career as Assistant Director of Catering. Next her love of travel and desire to explore the new Asian-Rim Cuisine, took her to Hawaii where she worked at Roy's, under Roy Yamaguchi. This experience infused her cooking style with a Euro-Asian flair and founded her continuing passion for the Sea.

    Returning to San Diego, Lisa broadened her career abilities by working for some of the top caterers in the area until she decided to start her own catering business. It is her desire to create a whole new level of service and quality, with a fresh new approach to catering.
