Thanks for stopping by Wanderlust Catering. My name is Simi Hansen. I'm the founder of the company and the Head Chef. I'd like to tell you the Wanderlust story.
I started my professional career as a woman wearing a suit in the business world. When I realized that I thought about food way more than work, I took on culinary school at the International Culinary Center in Campbell, California during my spare time. After graduating with top honors, I quit the corporate world and started working for high-end catering companies and upscale restaurants at home and abroad.
I spent over two years traveling the world learning cuisine from many different cultures. My favorites are the fiery dishes from Southeast Asia and the convivial tapas of Spain. I also learned the importance of sustainable practices from regions where resources are limited. I especially cherish my time spent working on a biodynamic farm in New Zealand.
Upon returning home, I realized that I truly loved the intimacy of catering and making the perfect meal for a client. Wanderlust Catering was born.
