Catering with Style
in North Florida
Karen started Mai Oui! Gourmet with a belief that, "Catering should be a fun experience for our clients. Mai Oui aims for quality, perfection and presentation in all
of our catering events!"
Karen grew up in the restaurant business: both
her parents and grand-parents were restaurateurs. With this background, she naturally developed a passion for cooking and entertaining. "I started out cooking and planning special occasions for family and friends and it was them who encouraged me to turn my passion into a business." It is this passion for entertaining that Karen brings to each of Mai Oui! Gourmet's catering engagement such as Wedding Catering and Corporate Event Catering.
Chef Pati Hordyk was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. She first came to Florida in 1985 and a decade later found herself in Jacksonville where she started her own Event Planning and Personal Chef Business. She joined Mai Oui! Gourmet in 2005.
Chef Hordyk likes to call herself a “home schooled” chef. Her mother was her biggest influence as far as trying new foods and great recipes, and instilled the love and passion for her cooking.
