About Us


Welcome to our site. It’s great to have you here! As one of the longest running catering companies in the DC area, it is a privilege to welcome you to the next phase of Tasteful Affairs’s Catering. But before we get into where we are going, I’d like to tell you a little bit about where we’ve been. How we got started. It’s really a great story, and I’m thrilled to share it with you.

Tasteful Affairs, or TAC as we like to call it, started completely by accident. I had no “plan” to start this business, or any business for that matter; I never even saw myself as the entrepreneurial type. It was 27 years ago, I was working in Georgetown as a bartender, at a really hot spot called Desperado’s, when a friend in the music business asked me for a favor. He had a show coming up that they needed a little something for the band to eat before they went on stage, and knowing I was good cook, he asked me if I could help him out. Now, what gal doesn’t like to show off her talents in the kitchen? Of course, I happily obliged. Now, I want you to remember this first job, it becomes a pretty cool novelty in the story later on.

Needless to say, everyone was pleased. I kept getting asked to feed bands coming into the city to perform, and I kept accepting the offers. Before long, I was a premier concert caterer. I could feed a back-stage crew and a whole rack of performers like nobody’s business. After a couple years, it was obvious, I was good at this. And I could make a living at it too! I started picking up more diverse types of events, such as weddings and corporate catering. It was around this time that I built my own commercial kitchen, from the ground up. That was amazing. Filling my own space with all the coolest kitchen gadgets a girl could want. I was having a lot of fun.

So take some time, check out the site, and let us know if you’re interested in doing business. We’ve been catering to the Washington DC area for 27 years now, and we look forward to catering to you.

So do you remember that first job I asked you to keep in mind? Well, that dinner was served to a then little known performer by the name of Bruce Springsteen. You can imagine my excitement after he hit it big a few years later, knowing that he catapulted my own career into the future with his music as well. Hey Bruce – I’m glad you like the food. Let me know if you’re in the mood for seconds.
