“We are food aficionados, we are creators: we slice, braise, roast, stew, simmer, we bake. The smell of croissants, cinnamon and chocolate, the scent of rosemary-infused shank or gratin dauphinois and garlic all fill the room with fragrance! The smells in the kitchen remind us of our childhood. Gastronomy is about creating a joy zested with nostalgia.”
Joëlle is a passionate French chef settled in Vienna since 2002. A culinary creator and virtuoso of super appetising, colourful dishes, light bites and other small treats. Her priorities? The impeccable quality of the produce, originality in the kitchen and excellence of service.
Edgar has been a dedicated head chef for fifteen years. He joined Joëlle’s Catering team in 2019. Born in Lithuania and trained in Germany, he lived in London for thirteen years cooking at the Résidence du Brésil and, for two years, at the LTA Tennis Club. There, he put together healthy and delicious menus for British tennis player Andy Murray.
“Cooking isn’t just a career, it’s my philosophy. I love working with fine produce, textures, flavours and colours. I get the best of them, I give the best of myself. It’s a joy!”
Meaning “benevolent” in English. Born in Dornod, Mongolia, into a nomadic family, Enkhsee’s major strength is the feeling of serenity she brings to Joëlle’s Catering. Her calm nature and sense of organisation work wonders in the team and around clients. Enkhsee is responsible for logistics. She manages and coordinates the services provided by caterers and organisers for receptions and gala dinners that sometimes include up to 350 people. She supervises and directs the extras and handles the essential arrangements around your event – equipment, transport and storage. Enkhsee is also the Joëlle’s Catering “pastry fairy”. Enkhsee’s speciality are cakes with colourful icing designs made with sugar paste. They are indulgent as well as elegant.
Chef Joëlle Raverdy’s daughter has been part of the team since September 2019. Active, efficient, vital and versatile, in a word, valued, alongside Edgar and Enkhsee. She is responsible for business relations with suppliers, purchases and orders, and the division of tasks.
