We are so proud of our vendor team here at the Barn at Bradstreet Farm and we thought it would be a perfect time to introduce them to you all!
In our first installment of our Vendor Spotlight, we are pleased to introduce catering rockstar Krisztina Perron, owner and lead chef of Wooden Spoon Catering Company!
Krisztina grew up in the kitchen learning the recipes and traditions of her family’s culture. Her immediate family immigrated to the United States from Budapest, Hungary. Upon their arrival, most of them worked in the foodservice industry and eventually they owned and operated a few different restaurants throughout Massachusetts.
Krisztina attended the culinary arts program at Whittier Vocational Technical High School in Haverhill, Massachusetts, where she studied culinary arts and hospitality. She was the first student to take advantage of the "fast-track program", an articulation agreement with Johnson & Wales University. This allowed her to finish her college degree early by testing out of introductory classes. She took that extra trimester to go back to Hungary to visit family and backpack around central Europe with her older sister. After completing her degree in Culinary arts, Krisztina worked at hotels and country clubs in both the fine dining restaurants and banquet kitchens. In April of 2013, she opened The Wooden Spoon Catering Company in Amesbury, MA and has since carved out a successful career as a wedding and event caterer. She has been awarded the "couples choice award" by weddingwire.com for the past three consecutive years, which is based on outstanding reviews from happy couples.
Krisztina continues to share her love for her heritage and international cuisine through her public cooking classes at Kitchen Local in Amesbury, MA and Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School in York, ME . Krisztina has acquired her Massachusetts vocational teaching licenses in both culinary arts and hospitality and continues to learn and share her knowledge with the next generation of culinary professionals.
Through sourcing local ingredients, Krisztina has built strong relationships with many local farms and artisans. By working together, they to provide fresh, top quality ingredients and goods to the Wooden Spoon Catering Company’s customers.
