Welcome to Fox & Honey!!
Welcome to the Fox & Honey blog! Thank you so much for joining us here on this little corner of the internet. We are so excited to share this business, our events, our eats & our community with you.
Here at Fox & Honey, we’re not a normal blog or a normal caterer. We are a COOL caterer.
We pride ourselves on going above & beyond for our events & guests. We are not just the supplier of food & drinks at a get together – we’re your partner in party planning. Need us to grab ice on our way? We can do that. Forgot bobby pins? We got you. Need help getting the kids fed? We’re your helping hand.
Our goal is to partner & get to know our clients for life. Not just for the duration of your engagement. We are a one stop shop for everything you need for a party, event or gathering. We handle the food, the beverage, the table décor, the ambiance & gifts.
A little background on our business – we are part of the BAKED hospitality group that encompasses the Baked restaurant, Cookies & Dreams, Toasted & of course Fox & Honey Events. Last year in 2019 & 2020 we began catering like crazzzyyy. What started as a couple of grazing boards & grazing tables turned into an every day order & being booked 6 months out type of thing.
We decided that we wanted to create our own entity for catering that was separate from Baked.
But then the world shut down due to Covid. All of our events were cancelled. And there were absolutely zero new events being added to the calendar. All of our energy went towards keeping our doors open during the shutdown & navigating this “new normal” we were faced with as a service & hospitality entity during COVID.
Fast forward to Fall & Winter 2020 – slowly events started picking back up & slowly we began to see a need for a fine foods retailer & caterer.
Enter Fox & Honey Events & Curated Hospitality! We were back in business, ya’ll.
Now that life is very slowly inching towards some resemblance of normal – our events have been picking up like crazy! And we have some EXTREMELY exciting things up our sleeves for the future.
We intend to not just share photos & videos of our products but also teach & help you experience all that Fox & Honey is by offering classes, recipes, pairings + more.
And that’s not all – we have a few tricks & exciting announcements up our sleeve. Trust me. But in the meantime, here’s a quick introduction to the folks behind Fox & Honey.
I’m Steph! Hi! Fox & Honey truly means so much to me. Although, I’m a busy lady between Cookies & Dreams, Baked + a few more top secret projects 😉 this endeavor has my heart. Fox & Honey is named after my horse, Foxy – whom I owned for 18 years & was pretty much the love of my life. She was a Palomino – meaning she was the color of pure, raw Honey. She passed away about 3.5 years ago but was just the most beautiful soul both inside & out. The grace, elegance, kindness & intimacy that WAS Foxy is exactly what we want to create with Fox & Honey. By tending to the earth & all that she offers, creating partnerships & relationships with our clients & allowing the natural beauty of Mother Nature to shine through our products & brand – we not only honor her legacy but create a new one in tribute for a life well lived.
Kayla is our Chef Queen - culinary mastermind behind the menus & catering here at Fox & Honey. Kayla is a Chicago Suburb native that moved to the Quad Cities in 2014. She's had a very circuitous route in her professional life. From Art school to Dental school, she's explored many avenues of passion. However, one thing as always been a constant-Restaurants. Her love for the finer things in life (aka wine, and cheese, and food, and more wine) has never gone away. It is no surprise that she has found joy and fulfillment in sharing her passion for pairings, as well as food and wine education with everyone. The work, planning, and creativity that goes into every menu, pairing, and event is always met with love and passion so everyone can enjoy the finer things in life. In her free time, Kayla loves reading, yoga, painting, playing guitar, & spending time with her friends and family in the Chicago area as much as her schedule allows.
Angela is our marketing super hero! She is a young entreprenuer who runs the social media & marketing departments for Baked, Cookies & Dreams & now Fox & Honey.
We are so excited to begin this journey with you! Follow along for more recipes, content & updates!
