For over 20 years, Dish & Design has been tantalizing the Lowcountry palate with fresh, healthy catering options for all occasions. From small get-togethers to office lunch caterings to elegant wedding hors d’oeuvres and dinners, their quality and customer service has helped Dish & Design gain a delicious reputation around town. Owner Anja Stief personally oversees every Charleston catering event, from the early planning stages through the post-event follow-up. With no formal training in culinary arts or event planning, Stief credits her decades of success in the industry to her German heritage and growing up in a large family.
“My German upbringing has never hurt me here,” she said. “We hold ourselves to a high standard, where a family setting and local, fresh food is important. Having grown up in a big family, planning parties and events has been part of my life forever.”
Dish & Design’s Rob Haan brings a career’s worth of experience to the company as an exceptionally innovative chef and experienced creative event planner.
The team at Dish & Design is dedicated to bringing passion to every event they cater. They strive to provide impeccable service, exceptionally prepared and presented food and new and unique experiences. They have even added a mobile kitchen to their options, allowing them to cook onsite in uncommon and sometimes breathtaking settings.
“The mobile kitchen allows us to ensure high quality and perfect presentation,” Stief explained. “Straight from the grill or oven to you separates us from others who prepare food hours in advance. It is self-sustained and can go almost anywhere to provide fresh, affordable food.”
In addition to spectacular food and presentation, Stief personally ensures that the journey planning the catering event is a success. Even the inevitable last-minute changes – planned or unplanned – are managed to appear seamless to guests.
“That’s the secret to our success,” Stief said. “Our personal touch. A successful event is in the details, and Dish & Design is there every step of the way to help turn each catering event into a memorable occasion.”
This holiday season, Dish & Design offers traditional Thanksgiving menus for corporate and private clients, ranging from a private dinner for five to corporate meals to serve 1,000 people. Set menus and appetizer packages are available, and staff can assist in custom menu planning as well.
“Why wait until Christmas to get together for a special meal, whether it’s with family, friends or co-workers? It’s the holiday season – such a fun and exciting time around here with lots of parties and holiday cheer, and we can help with them all,” Stief commented.
November and December are the most popular times for companies to say “thank you” to their employees or clients with a meal. The Dish & Design staff can assist with full service catering and events throughout the season.
“Plan early and stress less,” Stief recommends. “Corporate and private events are our specialty, and holiday weekends book up fast. We see it every year, and being ahead of schedule is so important. We want to see the hosts enjoying themselves, too. We’re here to help however we can.”
