A Perfect Blend of Sensational Food, Inspiring Ideas, and Professional Staff

The Kitchen Witch Catering is a full-service catering company located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. They are happy to cater affairs from 2 to 200 regionally on the Outer Banks – even the 4-wheel drive area north of Corolla.

The Kitchen Witch Catering Company was founded in 1992 by Mary M. Thrasher, a long-time resident of the Outer Banks. Through the years she has worked at many of the finer restaurants on the Outer Banks, as well as in Norfolk, Virginia. She is well-traveled and attended the New York Restaurant School. Mary has developed and designed menus for 30 years and can help you design a perfect menu and party. Whether for 2 or 200 each party, reception or dinner is treated with the same personal attention to detail.

Mary and her staff are long-time service/restaurant workers from across the country. She trained formally at OMNI, Norfolk, VA in the 1970s and later enjoyed extensive European food-related travel. The 90s introduced the fresh foods of California into her life and opened up the Pacific Rim flavors which are showcased in many of her traditional delights.


See What Our Clients Are Saying

We hired Mary of our staff retreat on the Outer Banks. She is wonderful to work with and the food was amazing! She made an incredible Mexican Fiesta meal for us with plenty of leftovers for the next day. She also prepared breakfast casseroles for the next morning – also amazing! We would recommend Mary for any of your catering needs. She was a big part of why our retreat was such a success, and everyone is still talking about how delicious her meals were! Thank you, Mary!
