How can I help you cater your next event?

Private Catering – Update, I am back in Darien and just in the process of restarting my business!

I am available to help out with catering at private events. I am a good cook and a great baker. I also love creating menus for events and parties, and specialise in catering for all dietary requirements. Think of me as a ‘Mor’ (Danish for mother), not a professional chef. Someone who cares about your event and wants everyone to be happy!

I can also help out by making cakes, savoury dishes or desserts if you just need a little extra help.

I run a small events company in Darien, Connecticut. I am the caterer and I call in friends and family to help when events were too large for me on my own. My speciality is Afternoon Teas.

Contact me for private catering or help with events.

See below for the sort of food I do, or check out links on my websites. I am now providing food at HAYVN , the new co-working space in Darien. My most recent away event in Denmark was catering a company offsite over two days. The full menu is here. I also can make smaller dishes, cakes or treats for collection or delivery.

I have put together a list of the sort of dishes I do. Already, I have noticed some omissions, no desserts, but we can use these as a starting point and take it from there.  I will update and add recipe links as and when.

  • Hi Carolyn,
    I have been in a food coma for the last three Thursday’s after your wonderful lunches at the DCA. Your key lime pie is the best dessert I have ever had!! Can I order one for Thanksgiving or Christmas?? I would love to order some sides for Thanksgiving if you have the time too.

  • Hi Carolyn,

    I had such a great time speaking with you at the Broker Breakfast at 320 Post Road in Darien yesterday morning and would love to get together to continue our dialogue. You can reach me at home at 845-278-7188 or send me an e-mail at my office. Looking forward to hearing from you!


    P.S. – Your quiche was the best I’ve ever had!

  • Hi Carolyn!
    This is Eve Mauger’s daughter. We are planning a wedding for Erick and I next summer 2020 in June. Would you be able to cater for 100 people? Otherwise, would you be able to make a wedding cake? How much do you charge for catering for 100 people? And a wedding cake?

    We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
    Kim Mauger
