The Peas

Inside the Pods

At Peas ‘n’ Pod, food is serious business, but catering is fun. Each of our menus is custom-designed, so we are able to offer our clients a wide range of tastes and global flavors. We’re known for our attention to detail, excellent service and elegant presentation.

Since 1996, Chef Catherine O’Brien and business partner Glenda Griswold have catered thousands of events, ranging from intimate dinner parties to large corporate gatherings and major fundraisers in and around Santa Fe.

Prior to arriving in Santa Fe, “the girls” worked in Washington, D.C. in the food service industry. Chef Catherine is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island, and Glenda is an alumna of American University. They both love to travel and collect new recipes and unique service pieces.

Chef Catherine appeared on The Food Network’s hit show Chopped on December 13, 2016, in episode 3118 titled “Sweet Heat.”
