Who is behind 29 Cooks Catering?
Cindie Feldman has a passion for all things food. Her vision to bring 29 Cooks Catering to life was shaped by her desire to not just cook high quality, delicious food for her clients, but to also allow an avenue for people of all ages who want to play in the kitchen. Cindie’s love of cooking is inspired by her late grandmother, who was known both for her talent in the kitchen and her desire to make people feel good by cooking for them. Cindie’s husband Kevin joined her in the kitchen along with her son Marc (Chef), her niece’s Brittany (Manager).
Her culinary team is complete with Lindsay, Michelle, Cooper, Michael, Cole, Josselyn, Sarah and occasionally others who love to cook and help out when things are cooking!
