Margaret Teskey

Margaret Teskey (President) Whether she’s cooking, planning a menu or entertaining, Margaret (Mags) Teskey is sure of one thing, she’s passionate about food. Originally from Ireland where sustainability in farming is simply 'a way of life' the transition to Northern California was an easy one. Margaret started her career in Food & Wine at Ashford Castle Ireland & The Old Course Golf & Country Club St. Andrews Scotland, two of the most exclusive luxury hotels in the world. From there she immigrated to the United States and pursued her culinary efforts in the Sonoma wine country training under top chefs while perfecting much of what she learned at home. Following that she pursued Pastry with a notable San Francisco restaurant but always knew that nothing was more satisfying than a well planned, well executed party. Eight years ago she joined Taste Catering working under MeMe Pederson who taught her the art of bringing that well planned, well executed party to life. Her second passion, wine is noted in the expansion of the Taste wine cellar by introducing boutique and biodynamic wines. She brings her own personal style and vast knowledge of food & wine to her events while allowing her clients to express their own vision.
