We started Mac & Ivy with three essential ideas in our minds -- food, friendship, and fun -- each concept equally important to the adventure. For the last fifteen years, we have laughed together, trusted each other, navigated challenges, and celebrated triumphs -- and through it all, we have eaten and eaten well. Whether it has been working together to perfect our children’s favorite cookie recipes or learning to make TriTip Chili with the ideal balance of sweetness and heat, we do not take deliciousness lightly. We bring that same love and attention to each of your events. In our catering business, we prepare every bite of food as if it were going to feed our own families. Call us or email us, and we will customize a menu to fit your taste and your vision.
In food, friendship, and fun,
jill (mac) & rachel (ivy)
"Jill and Rachel and their whole team are amazing. They make every event easy and tasty!"
"Not only is the food fresh and amazing, but Mac & Ivy plans each event (no matter how big or small) with complete creativity. They are innovative in the planning, and the food, details, themes, service -- everything is always perfection."
"I enjoy Mac & Ivy's food so much that I sometimes pout when I see their delicious offerings at other people’s gatherings on Instagram. They never disappoint! Always sumptuous and beautifully presented."
