A Note from Meg:
“I’ll never forget my first catering job. I must have checked the packing list, food and schedule fifty times (I wish that was an exaggeration!) I needed to show these guests just how much I loved cooking and entertaining. That catering job changed my life. I quit the last job I had to cater full time and never looked back!
Cooking has been my passion since I was 13 years old and became my second career when I opened Made by Meg in 2007. A close second to my love for food, is my love for witnessing others experience joy. I love seeing how friends laugh together, how families celebrate one another and how food plays a part in that gathering.
Made by Meg is not just a catering company, but a practice in hospitality. We love our clients and have a deep respect for what they are trying to achieve with their event.
As you read through our menu, I hope it stokes the excitement you have for your event. Our team is ready to plan the perfect menu and our hand selected staff is ready to bring it to life!
Chef Meg started her professional life as a Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney. After five years, Meg decided to pursue her passion for cooking.
She attended Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena, CA at night and worked the stock markets during the day. Being a constant on the President’s Honor Roll throughout her training, she was honored to work in a Michelin Star kitchen in Los Angeles, Ortolan, with famed Chef Owner, Christophe Eme. After an exhausting but highly rewarding journey, Meg started her catering business to a warm welcome from friends to former clients.
Meg is a native to Manhattan Beach, CA and a Villanova Graduate. She continues to be a part of the South Bay community through the Manhattan Beach Rotary Club, WIPA (Wedding Industry Professional Association) and South Bay BNI.
