Last week we met with Creative Edge Parties an upscale catering company in Manhattan, NY. They believe the food they serve should be equal to the most exciting and innovative restaurants in NYC. We had the pleasure to meet Brian Holbach the Lead Chef for Creative Edge Parties and interview him.

We met Chef Brian following a luncheon last month. This luncheon featured many Dutch foods at the New Amsterdam Day Festivals. Chef Brian featured our Coach Farm Goat cheeses at the event.

Brian knew at 14 years old he had the natural skills for cooking and passion for the culinary world.
