It is common knowledge that catering was not just another career option for Rhona Silver. Rather it was the one thing that she was most passionate about as she loved every moment and every aspect of the business. Born and raised in the midst of the smells and sounds of a small catering business owned by her immigrant parents in Bronx, N.Y., the business virtually ran in the blood of Ms. Silver. She started helping her parents, when she was just 10 years old and was comfortable and even eager to participate in everything, be it working in the coat room and the back of the house or learning to cook and make platters.
While other kids of her age went to play outside, she used to hang around her parents imbibing the tricks of the trade and sweating it out along with them. Today, years later she recalls those times as the happiest and most memorable moments she shared with her loved ones. It was also during this time that she learned the importance of paying attention to detail and the fact that the catering business was a one act show where there is no scope of second chances.
Even as a child Rhona Silver never shied away from hard work. Although she spent most of her free time helping her parents to run their business, she never sulked or felt burdened by it. Rather she felt elated for being able to put a smile on the faces of people on their special day through the services offered by the catering business owned by her family. Importance of perfect presentation was realized as she learned that while it might be possible to re-create a party, it was impossible to bring back the special moments that could be ruined due to a minor catering error, a truth she lives by even today.
