The Fork Goes on The Left
I feed people... that's what I do. I'm most content when preparing and presenting food that is flavorful and visually appealing through my catering company, The Fork Goes on the Left. Yes, as the name suggests there is a bit of formality and elegance in my food and presentation. My passion is evident in all of the wonderful flavors, textures and aromas combined into a total package that you can enjoy visually before devouring.
I appreciate you stopping by my profile...give me call. I'll customize a menu, especially for you and your budget.

A Mid-Summer's Night Dream
A friend described our wedding as a “mid-summer’s night dream”; and besides the heat, it truly was a dream that would not have been possible without the Fork Goes on the Left. For many months leading up to the day, the lady in charge, Mellanee Harvin, could not have been more helpful, professional, and accommodating. Even with our special requests (a whole roasted pig, please!), forgetfulness (we didn’t add coffee!), and many moving pieces (no exaggeration – 9 different vendors came together for this day!), Mellanee took it all in stride and was our constant during the whole planning process. And the fantastic day-of service and delicious food did not disappoint, either. I would highly recommend the Fork Goes on the Left to anyone looking to host an event where the meal is king and the coordination is above and beyond.
The day of the wedding her staff reflected the same characteristics as Mellanee as they impressed my family and friends with their excellent service. But now to talk about the most important thing…THE FOOD! The food was delicious! Everything was made to perfection and made with love. Every plate in the house was cleaned because everyone devoured the food. The bartender was also impressive as he nailed our signature drinks and added his own special touch to it. There was something about the food, drinks, and service that made my husband and I feel like it was made and served by family. Since our wedding day we’ve received numerous inquiries about the caterer from family and friends who attended the wedding. Needless to say, Mellanee was the perfect caterer for my special day and I am sure that anyone else who has worked with her would say the same.

Incorporating my Jamaican culture was very important to me when hiring a caterer. I contacted several caterers who specialized in Caribbean cuisine but many of them lacked in the customer service department. Also each vendor that I spoke with didn't come with their own staff. I would have to hire my own staff which was another headache that I didn't want to deal with. Then I found Mellanee on Instagram. As soon as I spoke to her I knew she was going to be the caterer for my big day. With a name like The Fork Goes On The Left I knew it was a perfect match. I stopped looking after I spoke with her. She sent a proposal shortly after our conversation which included service staff and bartenders, I was sold! The tasting was just the icing on the cake. I couldn't wait to taste the jumbo shrimps at my wedding. On the day of the wedding Mellanee and her staff arrived on time and ready to work. The food and service was amazing! My guests are still raving about the shrimps and amazing bartenders
