About Chef Alice

Hi, I’m Chef Alice!

A bit about me; I attended the Culinary Institute of America, both in Hyde Park, New York and Napa Valley, California.
For the next 5 years, I owned and operated the Diamond Café, located in Erie, Pennsylvania.  In addition to preparing a full service menu, I also catered engagement parties, showers, picnics, retirement parties, birthday parties, and provided services as a personal chef. Interactive cooking demonstrations, wine and cheese pairings and “Chef For a Day” were among other events we hosted.

Now living in Fountain Hills, I am excited to bring to you my 5 STAR culinary expertise! But, it takes a team.. Together with my Partner Mike and our team of servers, we will deliver and exceed your expectations at every event.

As your event planner, Mike we will help to secure a venue, deliver all special equipment needed, engage our servers, valet and bar-tending services (if needed) and handle the clean up. All you need to provide is your budget, and the guests!

My goal is to provide the freshest quality and best tasting food at a fair price. I can provide this directly in your home, or at your special event. From intimate dinners for two, to gatherings of one hundred or more, we’ll create a memorable event for you and your guests. Whether your located in Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek, Desert Ridge or the greater Phoenix area, well meet with you, plan your event and handle all the details. Your job – to Hob Nob with your guests!

“I promise you will experience delicious creative food and outstanding service for an exceptional price.”

“We couldn’t have been happier with the service and food provided by Chef Alice and Hob Nob Catering. A 25th Wedding Anniversary Party at our home and dinner for 40 – delicious trays of pre-dinner appetizers – and festive displays on all the tables. Our guests loved the food, and everything was on schedule, working in sync with the flow of the party and keeping everyone stocked with food and drinks. The Hob Nob team provided so much of the clean up that we had very little left over to do the next day. We will DEFINITELY call Chef Alice for anything we do in the future!” Carol W. – Thumbtack

“Chef Alice is top notch. We used Hob Nob Catering for our Easter dinner and truly could not have been happier. All of the food was absolutely amazing – the scrumptious appetizers and steak were among the best any of us had ever had! Chef Alice planned the impressive menu and was super flexible with requests. She was a complete professional start to finish. Just a delight to work with. She decorated our tables so elegantly and beautifully. Mike, also from Hob Nob, helped serve our Easter meal and he was just terrific. Such a pro and so nice. We loved that we were able to have a 5 star dining experience with our friends and family in our home and did not have to do any work or have any worries. We are 100% sold on her and her company. Any future catering event will involve Chef Alice and Hob Nob Catering!!! ” Kiesha P. – Thumbtack

Trust me they will not disappoint you in any way. Thanks again Chef Alice!!!” Candida H. – Thumbtack
