Having a knack for turning “any drab classic into a mouth-watering favorite” she can make any event a day or night to remember!

I enjoy meeting a client that has an event coming up that they need to be perfect, no matter the occasion, how big, or how small. I truly enjoy listening to their wants and needs, then making them a reality! My husband is one of the most talented Chef's I know, between the two of us and our team, we deliver all of our clients the best food and service, and hearing them tell us that, makes it all worth it day in and day out!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Our typical timeline and process for working with new customers is as follows:

First, we have an initial conversation about the event to include topics necessary for the building of a proposal. (Examples: Location, Times, Expected Number of Guests, Type of Service, Budget)

Second, Chef Nicole and her team will build a quote based on the information gathered from the initial conversation. Typically three quotes or proposals are returned, if the guest's needs are specific there may only be one. *For large scale events where a tasting is requested or deemed necessary by the Crossroads Bistro Team, it shall occur during this stage*

After the quotes have been looked over by the client, another conversation will occur to work out final details and ultimately a proposal is developed.

Lastly, the proposal is turned into a contract with a deposit being made as well as signed copies being exchanged.

Depending on the customers wants, needs, and any time constraints adjustments may be made to the process outlined above

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

We do work off of a guideline template, but each event is viewed on its own basis.


How did you get started in this business?

I have always been passionate about food. I love the experimenting, the science, and most importantly the joy a guest recieves from a meal that is truly delightful. I strive for excellence, and never settle for less. So, naturally, I threw myself into a world of culinary masterminds and soaked up every bit of knowledge they posessed! I used the oppurtunity in college to get into The Greenbrier Resort's Culinary Apprenticeship, and I never looked back!

-Chef Nicole


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

The larger the company, the more commercial they may be! At our family-run business, we strive on using Fresh and Local ingredients to make you something delicious! We don't open a bag from the freezer and cook it, we make it from scratch! That's the biggest difference, and one guests will notice!
