Caterer & Personal Chef:

Merrill has been cooking for over 25 years.

Born and raised in Westport, CT, Merrill spent much of her younger years caring for children and cooking for their families. After graduating from Tulane University, she worked at Restaurant Zanghi/Inn at National Hall in downtown Westport. Merrill moved to southern California and spent 9 years in the fashion/Events industry. Yearning to be near her family on the East Coast again, Merrill moved back to CT and has been inspired by the fresh, organic produce and herbs she grows in her garden built by her personal composting. Merrill enjoys healthy cooking with bold flavors and most of all enjoys cooking for others!
