Lisa & Jon’s wedding at RockWood Manor was beautiful…It was so nice of them to embrace  and support their’s cause on their wedding day. Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

See on the table cards  story of people all over the world that changed their lives after receiving a loan from Lisa and Jon’s Kiva’s lending team.

Sometimes what is so little for us can be so much for someone else…

In your table's name, Lisa and Jon's Kiva lending Team made a loan in ecuador for Juan Manuel so that he can buy fish and banana for resale.

A gift that means a lot! The meaning of gratitude…

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Everyone that knows me understands how much I enjoy shoes.  But this isn’t all about shoes but the meaning behind it.  Trust me, I will explain.

One year ago we booked the wedding of Clarisse and Ryan.  And of course we had them come to have a tasting along with Clarisse’s parents, Marilee and John.

As soon they left our show room in Gaithersburg I received a text message from Merilee Clarisse’s Mom thanking me and letting me know that she had tears in her eyes after she left because she knew that her daughter’s wedding was going to be beautiful.

Since then we have been discussing the wedding details many times over the phone and also in person.   Three weeks ago Merilee sent me a text asking what size shoe I wear.  I thought it was odd but did get back to her saying that I wear size 5 … and she responded OMG (such small feet).  So this week we had to meet again at the Strong Mansion venue at Sugar Loaf Mountain to discuss the final details … and guess what???

Merilee came out of her car with this beautiful box wrapped in silver polka dot paper wrap  that I love and when I opened it … I found a pair of gorgeous purple high-heel shoes exactly like my favorites. Soooo sweet!

The feeling I had wasn’t of happiness for having another pair of shoes, but the feeling that I must been doing something right to receive this. I enjoy what I do everyday so much … and for that I feel blessed.  I am so thankful to be  part of people’s dreams and to help them enjoy their moment stress-free.

I always say that we don’t have to be the biggest caterer in Washington, DC, but we do need to be the best one.  When i founded Superb Cuisines my goals were to create a company with a heart, with passion for food, commitment, friendly and professional service, all coming together where every event is Superb.  Where every client is our first priority and we always keep our promises.  If we can do these things, we will have accomplished our goals.

I hope that I did not bore you with my story,  but this gift meant a lot to me.  It means that we are doing things the right way …

Our 4th Wedding Anniversary!

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Wow…The time flies. I remember the priest telling Scott “son you have your hands full” and he responded “yes sir, I know, bring it on!”  It’s already been 4 years since we got married and it feels like it was yesterday. My heart still beats very fast every time I get to see him and I count the hours until the end of the day to get home just to get to spend a few hours together on our couch till we felt asleep and go to bed recharging and reconnecting to get ready for another day. I am looking forward to the next 50 years by your side baby.

Happy Anniversary!

Tonight we celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary with a wonderful dinner experience with a 15 course meal at Komi in DC and by the way no picture of the food is allowed at the restaurant so you must to go there to check it out. It’s an amazing place!

Passion for Food…

Friday, October 21st, 2011

I have so much passion for food. I’ve been cooking since I was 10 years old.  I learned from my Mother, and before long I was making most of our family meals.

When I founded Superb Cuisines my goal was to create a company  with a heart – where excellence in food, presentation, and service all came together – where every customer was our #1 priority – where every event was Superb!

In the beginning, I did just about everything myself – booking events, event planning, menu selection and preparation, table setup – everything.  “What’s the term – chief cook and bottle washer? that was me!.  Five short years later – things sure have changed. We have assembled a talented team that shares my passion for great food, presentation, and customer service and we just keep getting better and better!”.

At Superb Cuisines food must to look beautiful, taste exquisite, smell wonderful, make people feel good, bring them together, inspire romantic feelings… like a loving touch or a glimpse of divine power that has ability to comfort.

Fourth of July!

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

It’s summer. It’s hot! Fourth of July is the biggest summer holiday and it’s right around the corner. America’s Independence Day is a traditional red, white and blue celebration which usually includes foods with an outdoor flavor followed by bright fireworks at night. So enjoy the holiday! It is the love of country that has lighted for each of us and that keeps glowing the holy fire of patriotism.

The Art of Cooking!

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Cooking is an art and patience a virtue.. Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need. There is one more thing – love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table. With a combination of these things you can be an artist – not perhaps in the representational style of a Dutch master, but rather more like Gauguin, the naïve, or Van Gogh, the impressionist. Plates or pictures of sunshine, taste of happiness and love.

See the pics below showing the love of chef Marcell Bernard to our clients:
