The Inspired Gourmet



Just as an artist masterfully mixes colors on his palette, Chef Mandy Braidic combines flavors and textures to delight her client's palate.  She derives her inspiration from the theme of each event to come up with a presentation that is both pleasing to the eye and the palate.  With artistic grace and passion as is evident with each culinary delight that is presented.

Chef Mandy grew up in Oregon with an artist mother and a physician father who together practiced the ever popular idea of "sustainability" and "farm to table" concepts.  These ideals are what have inspired Chef Mandy in her cooking techniques today. A self proclaimed foodie, Mandy has cooked, independently studied and has expanded her food knowledge for the past 15 years.  She has been a professional caterer that specializes in intimate gatherings.  Whatever the occasion, art plays a big role in the menu.  Mandy is the sole caterer for San Diego's finest art galleries as they recognize her ability to mirror with food what the featured artist is painting.

When Mandy isn't cooking she is a full time mom.  She has two kids that love to cook as well.  An avid runner, Mandy enjoys fine tuning her menu ideas while out on her long runs.
