I woke up this morning craving rouladen. And then it rained all day long and I wanted mashed potatoes too. So, I trekked to HEB in the downpour and got the ingredients and made dinner. Rouladen, rotkohl, sauerkraut, and Gr**go Mashed Potatoes. The gravy was so rich and silky. Craving satisfied. (Catherine Richey)

My client has a long time friend coming to visit. Normally they see each other every year at least, but it’s been two years because of health issues and Covid. They just want to hang out and catch up, so I prepared some meals for them. (Catherine Richey)

Monday meal service. One of my clients was working from home today and I served him a freshly made wrap for lunch. The other wraps went in the fridge for grab and go lunches this week. (Catherine Richey)

38th birthday dinner. I brought home a slice of the chocolate tres leches and had it with coffee today. It made me very happy. Very. (Catherine Richey)

Bachelorette dinner for a group of fun ladies. We had 4 omnivores, 1 dairy intolerance, 2 vegetarians and 1 vegan visiting San Antonio for the weekend. I worked with the group coordinator to create a menu everyone could enjoy. Laura & I really enjoyed preparing and serving this meal. #lavishcuisine (Catherine Richey)

Last night was non-stop! Helen, Maurice and I shared the kitchen space with all these guests and received very positive commentary from the guests. There was no time for taking pictures. (Catherine Richey)

Our host and hostess (somewhere near the 80 year mark) were going to eat in their office so their guests could sit comfortably at the dining room table and breakfast nook table. I talked them into sitting on the stools at the cooktop island. I’m so glad they agreed. What a fun couple! Chatting and laughing with them at the newly formed Chef’s Table took precedence over pictures. We had an extra guest and as I was slicing tenderloin filets to create extra portions (instead of serving the 11 filets whole as planned), I said to the host, “I kinda feel like Jesus, with the bread and fish.” He starting laughing, held up his hand and said, “Stop! When my wife told me we were having an extra person but she thought there would be enough food, I said to her, ‘Who do you think the Chef is? Jesus?’” Laura and I had such a fun evening bantering with this couple. I feel blessed to get to meet and cook for such lovely clients. (Catherine)

Now that school is out for the summer and I’m not acting as Luke’s co-teacher during the day, I’m accepting weekly meal clients. Today I was at a new client’s house. They had some proteins in their refrigerator they wanted to use, so I planned my menu around that. (Catherine Richey)

Tonight I prepared a very special anniversary dinner at my house for a couple dear to the Lavish Cuisine Family. They’ll get their own chapter in my book and this post could never summarize the enormity of experiences we’ve shared or my feelings for these two or their personal accomplishments in the time sine they joined our food adventures. We have been blessed to have them in our lives. I was honored to cook for their 8th wedding anniversary. They’ve eaten a lot of my food over the years as servers, perched in laundry rooms and pantries. Tonight they sat at my table and we enjoyed a wonderful meal together. (Catherine Richey)

Back in 2019 I sold a cooking class gift certificate from a daughter to her mom for Mother’s Day. I had a great time getting to know her mom as we cooked together. Fast forward 2 years…her mom asked me to come back to prepare a surprise birthday dinner for her daughter and 4 of her girlfriends. It’s always nice to return to kitchens I know. (Catherine Richey)

Happy Birthday dinner for 8 guests. This Chilean Sea Bass was so fresh and gorgeous. I definitely wanted to honor it and the birthday girl by preparing it properly. (Catherine Richey)

Last night’s dinner was very interesting. We pushed out 2 apps, salad, surf and turf entrée and dessert for 10 from a teeny kitchen with barely any counter space. Laura’s leg muscles, if not Laura herself, will be reminding me today of her carrying all the supplies upstairs, then tableware and food down to serve under the “treehouse”, then back upstairs when mosquitoes invaded as we were about to plate and serve the main course. The guests really enjoyed the Thai-Latin fusion menu. (Catherine & Laura)

Tonight I was back at that gorgeous hilltop house. It was so nice to be asked to cook for these clients again. The host came up with the idea to build a menu around a 1970s British theme. (Full menu is posted at end of pictures.) I also did some meal prep for them. (Catherine Richey)

Birthday celebration for 7 friends! My sister Theresa is in town and we dragged her along to help us. So thankful for the extra help with this 5 course meal. Lots of dishes and wine pairings. And again, thank you to Laura, my most amazing photographer and kitchen helper.

Not gonna lie, I totally had the most fun plating for the 3 year old tonight. I was so thrilled to receive a job request from a client who lives down South and was going to be in town to visit his daughter. I had the opportunity to teach a cooking class for an at risk teenage group in their outdoor kitchen in Tilden way back in 2016! Tonight I was able to prepare a nice meal for his beautiful family here in San Antonio.

My little food critic made her dessert course judgment before I even got the plates to the table. So precious!! (Catherine Richey)

Last night I returned to the spectacular Airbnb I spent 5 days at preparing lunches last month, but this time I was cooking for the owners and their family and friends! It was an Aries Birthday Celebration for 4 lovely women. Laura came along with me and took these fantastic pictures. (Catherine)

Anniversary dinner. I was supposed to prepare this meal last year, but then Covid happened. In 2019 I catered his birthday party. It’s always the best compliment to be invited back. (Catherine Richey)
