DaRae Marcum, with DaRae & Friends Catering, comes by the studio to celebrate National Cheese Lovers Day with Doug High by sharing a recipe for fried cheese balls.
DaRae says she was meant to be a caterer, all starting from the day her Uncle bought her first table and chairs at age three. DaRae says she spent her childhood days serving her dolls (and any human who would take it, she jokes) tea and cookies, and her summers and long weekends in the kitchens of her grandmother and aunts, all ten of them, learning how to cook and serve others. The first library book she checked out in the second grade was about etiquette, while her favorite pasttime was polishing silver and setting the table.
At DaRae & Friends Catering, located at 3459 Buckhorn Drive, Suite #140 in Lexington, they believe food is a mission in itself. The comfort and joy it brings, whether to customers, business and guests is what drives the culinary team to include personal touches.
DaRae & Friends Catering is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9:0o a.m. to 12:00 p.m. For more information, call (859) 272-8003, or visit their website at daraeandfriends.com.
