Meet Alisa LaFurge - Executive Chef and Owner

Born and raised in Montana, Alisa grew up cooking with her family, finding her passion in bringing people together with food.  After completing her bachelor's in Business Management she wanted to get out and explore the culinary world.

In 2005 Alisa moved to Portland, Oregon where she finished a culinary arts program.  Immediately after school she took a sous chef position at a downtown cafe that turned into her first executive chef role.  

In 2008 she decided it was time to take her passion and creativity and spread it to around the Portland area wherein Divine Catering was born.  Working by herself for 5 years and building her small business into what it is today, has been the most amazing experience.

Alisa believes the most flavorful dishes come from the heart, and of course only the freshest and finest ingredients.  She prides herself in owning her own small and proudly independent business.  Divine Catering has a 75% return customer base because she treats her customers with the utmost care and respect.  By incorporating her knowledge of food, catering, and craftsmanship with a true passion for her business and employees, you definitely receive service beyond what is expected.  

When Alisa is not in the kitchen she loves to be outdoors and spend time with her son.  

Meet Rob Lester - Sales and Events Manager

Rob has been working events his whole life. Literally.  Both of Rob's parents were event planners, planning a medical conference every year in Orlando since he was a baby.  He began working behind the registration desk when he was 10 helping check people in and helping his mom order food for the various seminars.  

He has since worked on and helped plan events for Nike, the hit shows "Little People Big World" and "Grimm", Mechanisms of Perfusion, and weddings of all shapes and sizes.  Rob has been an employee of Divine Catering for 6 years and was Alisa's first full time employee she hired.  

His favorite activities include camping, fishing, and spending quality time with his wife, daughter, and their Boston terrier, Dexter.
