Chef Kim Lloyd joined Celine and Company Catering as Executive Chef in 2006. She was formerly Executive Chef of Pawley’s Plantation Golf Resort and Thoroughbreds Restaurant, both in the Myrtle Beach area. She is a graduate of The Florida Culinary Institute and an American Culinary Federation Gold Medalist who has led numerous award-winning teams in regional culinary competitions.
Chef Kim and her husband Jeff, also a chef, made their move to WNC after feeling drawn to the area. She brings with her over 25 years of culinary and business expertise to our local community.
Founded by Celine Lurey in 1994, Celine and Company has been a leader in quality catering in Asheville for more than 20 years. Chef Kim purchased the business in 2015 and has been carrying on Celine's legacy while bringing fresh flavors and new concepts into Asheville's evolving culinary landscape.
When asked just what Celine and Company is all about, Chef Kim replied,
"We love what we do! We take equal pride in serving an intimate dinner for 10 people as we do producing a multiple day corporate event for 1,000 people. We work with each of our clients to create once in a lifetime celebrations, helping them to make memories that last a lifetime!”
And they don't just specialize in weddings. Celine and Company's downtown venue is a perfect place to host business meetings, forums, networking events and more. They also offer catering and staffing services at many other local venues, private homes and business offices in Asheville.
Something that you may not know is that they have donated THOUSANDS of surplus meals to Food Connection to feed the hungry and they also prepare by-monthly meals for the Asheville High School Homeless StudentEduction Group. Talk about a company that gives back to the community! Feel free to contact Celine and Company at 828- 254-9902.
