Your special event is important. Whether it’s a house party for friends or professional acquaintances, an intimate wedding, a tea party, fundraiser for a great cause, or a celebration of a birthday or special achievement, planning takes time, is complex and can cause great stress. One of your biggest concerns is food. You want it to be elegant, beautiful and delicious, you want your guests to be thrilled. You want to feel confident.

Zest will deliver that confidence. As a husband and wife team catering since 2007 in Middlebury, VT we developed a reputation for excellence. Now we have brought that experience to the Saratoga and Capital Region. We have a passion for food and will prepare your menu with a loving an attention to detail. Nothing pleases us more than hearing that your guests loved the food, and they will!

We are not corporate in any way. Your experience will be personal and direct with Carla and Eric Kuchar, the chef and project manager respectively. Eric and Carla are friendly, flexible and specialize in custom tailoring food for your needs. Need it gluten free? No problem! Special diet concerns? We’ve got you covered, no need to worry. Our approach to food is also personal and direct. We believe in local and organic resources. 

We use the freshest ingredients, loving preparation and simple and elegant presentation. 
We can provide brunches, intimate dinners for two, weekly meals and awesome desserts!
Soups? Sorry, we only have several hundred recipes! Backyard BBQ? Giddy-up!
