Executive Chef Elisabeth Weinberg began cooking with her mother and grandmother when she was a child, helping them prepare meals for large family gatherings.
After graduating from Barnard College, Elisabeth decided to pursue her love of cooking professionally and established Miss Elisabeth’s Catering in the Spring of 2003.
A native New Yorker and graduate of NYC’s French Culinary Institute, Chef Elisabeth caters to a sophisticated and diverse palate. Her extensive repertoire includes modern and traditional French and Italian cuisine, including fresh homemade pasta dishes, Southern cooking and BBQ, Dim Sum…really, anything and everything! With her Orthodox Jewish background, she can also accommodate clients interested in Kosher menus.
When designing custom menus for her clients, Chef Elisabeth focuses on ways to utilize seasonal, organic and local foods, with attention to the highest quality ingredients. Chef Elisabeth is passionate about supporting local farms and she shops almost exclusively at the Union Square Greenmarket. She believes a chef is only as good as her ingredients. For every dish she cooks, she seeks out the best ingredients she can find—from the salt that she seasons with, to the herbs she uses, to the meat, fish and produce. You can truly taste the attention and care she puts into her cooking.
