My Story

“When you cook for others, it does something to your heart.”

In 1996, I began a career providing care for individuals with special needs. This is where I found my love of preparing food for others. I introduced different seasonings, trying to elevate the dishes they had become familiar with. It gave me great pleasure to see how food touched people’s hearts. In the past, these medically fragile adults were served the same dishes from a designated menu. Some began refusing to eat all together. In reality, they just wanted variety, spice, and meals prepared with a little love and care.

Once I discovered their enjoyment in eating the foods I prepared, I invited their family members to join us at mealtimes and holidays. This allowed families to spend more time together with their loved ones, which fed their bodies and souls. The reactions I encountered fueled my desire to turn this sense of fulfillment into my future in cooking . When one thinks of happy memories, they are often associated with great meals – I want to prepare those meals! I want my customers to focus on making positive memories, while I do all the work, just as my Grandmother and Mother frequently did for my family functions.

To increase my skills and keep current with trends, I have studied at Rouxbe, a cooking school. In order to provide the highest quality in food preparation, I became a Serve Safe Certified Food Handler in November 2014. The name STRUT is an homage to my Grandmother who would strut around the kitchen when she had made something she found tasty.

Customer Reviews

“Strut catered for our wedding and I don’t think we could have gone with anyone better. Tamara went above and beyond to help make our day perfect. She was kind, helpful and professional. She designed our menu to fit our needs and was conscious of our guests needs. She even helped us stay green by using “Eco-Friendly” biodegradable plates. The food was delicious and simply mouth watering. Best tacos ever! I can’t wait to have another excuse to book them again.” – Raquel R

“We had a dinner party with friends and Strut Catering provided the panko crusted chicken Parmesan. The portions were very large and it was delicious! She served it with homemade sauce and fresh mozzarella and basil. Tamara was very accommodating and provided exactly what we wanted. It was a great evening and wonderful food!” – Kay F
