When party hosts sit down with Sweet & Savory chef Melissa Mudd, she listens carefully to what they envision, then helps them plan a menu to match the event. An office gathering might get a lineup of party trays. An elegant party might center on herb-roasted beef tenderloin with stone-ground mustard, or even a custom chocolate-zucchini wedding cake. Once the menu is decided, she and her team make everything from scratch, scorning time-saving measures such as premade icing.
Even when there's nothing in particular to celebrate, the aroma of freshly baking focaccia lures guests into Sweet & Savory’s café and bakery throughout the day. For breakfast, chefs drown buttermilk biscuits in housemade sausage gravy, and sauté bananas in brown sugar and dark rum to create bananas-foster buttermilk pancakes with vanilla crème anglaise. Later in the day, they heap slow-cooked barbecue pork on onion buns, then craft tartines with fire-roasted shrimp and corn relish, which pairs nicely with chilled soup or a salad drizzled with peach-champagne vinaigrette. Dinners can also be taken home to families or nests of baby birds, along with pies, cheesecakes, and other desserts.

After graduating from England's Southampton University, Jacqueline Bols began her culinary career in the French and Italian rivieras, serving her creations on private yachts in Cannes, Monaco, and Saint-Tropez. Later, she catered American events, earning the Charles Heidsieck Award for Culinary Excellence and serving her feasts to such famed diners as Oprah Winfrey, Sean Connery, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kevin Costner.
In 2001, Jacqueline opened Jacquie’s Café & Gourmet Catering, drawing on modern French cuisine and local and organic ingredients to craft in-house breakfasts and lunches as well as catered meals. In quarters ornamented with photographs and oil paintings, guests can dine on handcrafted yogurt parfaits, homemade soups, or smoked turkey, brie, and apple sandwiches. The catering arm of the outfit fashions hors d'oeuvres, à la carte items, and boxed lunches for private events, as well as corporate breakfast and lunch dishes, which distract employees from the daily grind of prank faxing competitor companies.
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
