Chef/Owner of The Ripe Choice Catering Kitchen, Tammy Lipps, enjoys making others smile and has been doing so for decades in Manhattan Beach, California. She and husband Mark Lipps are looking forward to doing the same here in Lake County, in the previous spot of Dancing Poly Farm & Food. The barn event space, the organic field crops, orchard, and vineyard offer endless possibilities and fit perfectly with their sensibilities and desire to take The Ripe Choice to the next level.
The Ripe Choice catering will provide California Casual at its best: sophisticated and freshly inspired in collaboration with the event hosts. The key-differentiating factor that makes The Ripe Choice the right choice is the 1:1 attention of Tammy and her staff, whether doing a romantic anniversary dinner for two, an event for 1500, or even donating The Ripe Choice Catering services for non-profit community events. Chef Tammy’s mantra is: “We guarantee a menu that is flavorful, festive and fulfilling to your guests.”
Tammy’s husband, Mark, says, “I see my wife and her staff preparing a dinner for three hundred and I ask, ‘Are you still having fun?’ She always says ‘yes’. She is that person who has followed a passion and made it a business, and it shows in the quality of her events and her food presentation. Her extraordinary repeat business and her one-on-one relationship with her clients make for a true love affair. As a wife and mother, Tammy has always been patient and loves unconditionally, never saying anything negative about anyone. She brings that same humanity and character to working with her staff and her clients.”
Tammy loves her work and says “I love working with food. It comes from somewhere in my soul. As a child, I enjoyed working in the kitchen alongside my mother. It was a therapeutic, creative, peaceful place to play and experiment with food. I treat each event as if it was my own party in my own home… it matters that much to me. Whether it is fancy and complicated or not, it all has to be good.”
