When caterBuzz put out the call to buzzie members that we would be blogging in the Kentucky area for the ICA caterArts 2010 culinary learning experience we got a more than a few responses from members wanting to share their catering expertise with the caterBuzz community – but none more welcoming than the email from Regina Niece of 4 Star Catering
in Appalachian Mountains in Red Fox, Kentucky, urging us to “hurry home”.
With a warm and inviting invitation like that, who could resist?

Regina and husband Jimmy have an 80 acre spread in the beautiful Kentucky Mountains, with a commercial commissary kitchen built right next door to their lovely home, complete with wrap around porches and countless rocking chairs, hammocks and swings. The property includes a fully stocked catch and release pond that can host family re-unions, weddings and corporate get-togethers, as well as a pumpkin patch area where local school children look forward to the pumpkin party jack-lantern delights yearly.
In addition to events on their own property, 4 Star Catering (named for their 4 sons) provides off site catering in 3 states – Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.
