The Taste! To Go Team

Andrea Williams

Owner/Executive Chef

Andrea Williams has always been a dreamer with an entrepreneurial spirit. Thankfully her team helps make her dreams a reality.

She loves a challenge and is always ready to tackle what appears to be the impossible. Client’s ideas and dreams inspire her and she loves to create events for them.

She spends most of her time in the kitchen developing recipes, prepping and of course, cleaning.

Emily Gross

Andrea had a wild idea and needed a rational partner. Twelve years later, they are still working together to create memorable parties and events.

Emily works very closely with all of our clients and venues and manages our rock star staff. She also spends a lot of time in the kitchen testing recipes, prepping for events, and keeping our staff in line!
