Growing up in a household of 6 in Selinsgrove, Janelle’s love of cooking naturally grew as she watched and assisted her mother in preparing meals and recipes for a growing family. As a stay-at-home mom, Janell’s mother believed in making everything from scratch. They enjoyed picking apples for milling applesauce, canning tomatoes and making jams and jellies from seasonal fruit.
As a teenager, Janelle and her family moved to Lancaster to be closer to family. There she became a waitress for Distinctive Affairs Catering, eventually transitioning into a mentorship with the chef from 2002 to 2006. From this time, the saying “Neatness Counts” would stick with her more than anything else.
In 2006 Janelle decided a change was needed and started as a sous chef at a restaurant that was closer to home. Here she gained more experience, not only cooking but managing the kitchen. Within a year she stepped up as head chef and began developing her own style using inspiration from each individual along the way.
When the opportunity arose for Janelle to return to her passion of catering in 2010 she didn’t hesitate. Developing a partnership with Fairview Golf Course, they have grown in capabilities to cater to Lebanon County and it’s surrounding areas.
Today Janelle is as passionate about catering as ever and continues to believe “Neatness Counts” not only in the kitchen, but in every aspect of life.
