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 is quite difficult to plan a wedding long distance. Mary’s recommendations were extremely thoughtful, pragmatic, and were all wonderfully implemented.

You surpassed our expectations and we received many, many compliments, not only on the food, but on the friendly and efficient helpers you brought along.

...the food you prepared was superb. Some of the favorites were the appetizer brie with berries and the tuna bites. Everything you prepared was excellent.
