Mary Elizabeth Rohrbach was tired of working in the corporate world. After enrolling in the culinary arts program at Jefferson State, Rohrbach quit her job and opened Mary Beth’s Pantry, a Southern casual catering company in Hoover.
“The taste of our food is of the utmost importance to us,” Rohrback said. “Every single dish has been tested over and over again. We make all our own salad dressings and shop at local markets the day before every event we cater. We rarely use a can opener because made-from-scratch is what we do well. There aren’t many down-home cooking avenues in Birmingham that can compare in our opinion, and that is why we have such loyal customers.”
Mary Beth’s Pantry will cater any event, large or small, with its Southern food and a choice of lemonade or sweet tea to drink. Menu items include chicken and wild rice and a low country boil. Rohrback will willingly change the menu to accommodate her customers’ needs.
On-site barbecue grilling is also offered. All in all, the new catering service offers just about everything when it comes to Southern food. They will deliver to anywhere within 25 miles of their Hoover location.
Go to the Pantry at 3439 Lorna Lane or call at 520-6363 for more.
