Hailing from rural Northern Vermont, I was raised on an organic farm and taught to respect the ingredient from the time I could walk. I left the farm to receive training and an culinary degree from the Culinary Institute of America, class of 2001.

Upon graduation, I migrated west, headed for the bay. I spent a few years in Santa Cruz and Sonoma before settling in the Mission district. Looking forward to all the plentiful work in the city I was living in, I instead promptly took a job in Mountain View, as chef for an assortment of Google cafes, including a year running the You Tube Cafe in San Bruno.

Four years later I set out on my own to create a dream business, a San Francisco based operation serving the bay area with my own creations. Elevate Cuisine Catering was founded in July of 2012, and I've been living the dream ever since! We create dishes from many different cultures and regions, preparing global flavors with locally sourced ingredients and classical training.

Then, in the fall of 2013, I expanded to a brick and mortar restaurant in the Bayview district, CDXX. We now craft all of our meals in our very own spotless facility, rated a perfect 100 by the Department of Public Health. Come by for a visit and say hi!

Delicious! Could be even better if it had more veggies (broccoli) added

After having been personally assaulted by Fletcher's jalape├▒os in his last mac and cheese dish, I was pleasantly soothed by this one. I could have it for lunch everyday, love it.

Delicious and a little crunchy in a good way, nice textures. Would like to see this as an entree, may order 2 sides next time. Would like to know info on animal welfare for meat and dairy products listed in ingredients for that dish.

Would it be really pretentious to start off by saying that I've been to Cuba? Oops, too late. This was my first munchery order and I was very impressed. This dish totally nails all the flavors I remember. Delicious.

OMG-this meal was AMAZING. This might be my most favorite Munchery entree to date. The sauce chef Starkey has created is out of this world. The meatballs are absolute perfection. The combo is perfect with the capellini noodles. Huge generous portion.

This is perfect "comfort food." And on this cold, rainy night, the ideal side dish to add to my entree or this and a salad and dessert makes a hearty meal. The cheese sauce got an extra kick with the bacon and jalapenos (which I liked in this dish).

Pretty good. The meat balls were excellent but the gravy is almost too rich. It was a very "heavy" meal. Good veggies.

It was tasty, but very spicy! I enjoyed the breadcrumbs. My husband loved it.

Sorry it wasn't spicy enough for you, Dawn. I'll add more kick in the future!
Best mac & cheese I've ever had, and in a city full of foodie versions of mac & cheese, that's saying a lot.

Amazing and tasty mac and cheese recipe.

It was amazing. Hands down the best meal I have ordered off of Munchery so far. The shredded pork was delicious, well-seasoned, the pineapple fried rice was savory and sticky, and the vegetable were on point. Plus the portion size was quite large.

Was sadly disappointed by this meal. Generous portion but it bore no resemblance to any Kalua Pork I've ever had, everything was too heavily spiced, and the rice was hard. Also packed so it was difficult to follow the heating instructions correctly.

Wow- amazing! Love the spices, would order again.

Generous amount of chicken and great zing to both it and the slaw!

Tasty! Dont think the nutritional info is accurate: def. more than 32g of carb considering the amount of noodles & meatballs. Make sure you get that walk in after meal if worried about blood glucose. Suggest substitute with whole wheat spaghetti.

Please keep this coming on the menu. The Andouille sausage is always available, as is chicken. My husband misses the shrimp, but that is the way it goes. Probably would have preferred black beans, but that is a personal taste.

This was delicious, and very satisfying! There was enough for two meals. The only thing that wasn't great was the veggies... But I would definitely order again.

I consider this guilt=free Mac n Cheese, toss in a little broccoli. The panko crumbs on top were perfect!!! I appreciate how the various opposite textured items get packaged separately so they can be warmed or not, etc.

It was solid as far as mac & cheese goes, but I would have liked a bit more broccoli.

Thanks for the review, Stephanie, I'll add a bit more broccoli next time! Cheers, Fletcher
Very good! Sauce is yummy. Flavor reminded me of stroganoff.

Rich and delicious. Perfect to share among several people. The smokiness of the gouda was the dominant flavor. The squash and breadcrumbs were interesting textural complements to the mac. Squash could have been cooked a bit longer.

I've ordered this dish before and regretted this order. It seemed as though the meal had been shaken up because the pork, rice and veggies were all mixed together. The pork was NOT shredded and was in need of seasoning. Quality control was lacking

This was good - creamy cheese sauce, toasty breadcrumbs, crunchy and fresh broccoli. However, portion was very small, so likely wouldn't order again.

To date my favorite item on Munchery. The vermicelli is a perfect complement to the delicious meatballs and sauce.

How can you go wrong with bacon and jalepenos? This mac n cheese is yummy, and the toasted breadcrumbs for the top give that that little something extra special. I would prefer the breadcrumb container on the side so it doesn't get icky.

Super creamy and delicious. I never though of a squash mac and cheese before but they work really well together. Unfortunately for Munchery I might have to steal/borrow/recreate this recipe for the family over the Holidays!

Thought all of it fit well together. The rice and vegetables were delicious. The chicken was a good, but a little extra seasoning couldn't hurt. The only thing I think was out of place was the tuna, but don't let that stop you from making it the same

I used to love Munchery. Lately, the food has been so off. Wow, the pork was so salty that I had to throw it away. Come on Munchery, step it up. Even the dish looked unappetizing before I heat it up.

Absolutely delicious. Good portion size, held up well even in the microwave, and the breadcrumbs were a fantastic touch. Never thought mac and cheese could taste this good!

Pork was nicely shredded but could've been tastier. Fried Rice was fine but too little. Will probably order again. Tonite's meal was prepared much better than previous night's meal.

Meatballs had a soft texture and needed more seasoning. Everything else was quite good.

Perfect sized portion as an appetizer. Gouda cheese was delicious. This dish tastes very healthy and is not anything close to the artificial Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that I normally eat. Great dish to fill out a meal.

Surprised to find that there was not a lot of cheese flavor.

The broccoli was crisp and the breadcrumbs were a nice touch but *sadly* I make better mac'n'cheese. Or maybe it's just my expectation of it -- should be super creamy and cheesy. This wasn't but it was fine.

This dish was ridiculously salty -- we could only eat 1/4 of the kalua pork before having to throw the rest of the pork out. It also left us extremely thirsty the rest of the night. This dish was a complete fail for us.

definitely ironing the kinks out of Starkey's Mac n Cheese. This is so much better compared with a few months ago, I will order it again.

Finally a decent portion of protein. It was well seasoned and tasty. Definitely one of the better meals.

Delicious and great sales appeal- who can resist? BUT I was surprised how misleading the photo is regarding the amount you get. It is probably a third of what is photographed and comes in one of those small takeout containers you get at a deli.

The portions were generous but I found this to be extremely salty. My husband said the same thing. The pineapple fried rice would have helped with the saltiness but there wasn't enough of it.

Meatballs had great flavors but the whole dish altogether was a bit too rich --two meatballs were the limit.
