Two sisters and their brother walk into a bar...
the week before New Years Eve. We had a couple beers and shared our goals for the upcoming year. By the time we left, we had doodled a big dream on a small napkin. And not long after that, we committed all of our waking hours to making that dream come true. A whole lot of heart following and soul spilling, an idea utterly soaked in love and here we are, Lady & Larder. We are 100% family-owned and operated. We are siblings. We are best friends. And we grew up in the kitchen.
We are all a part of the hospitality community. It's all we've ever known. It's in our blood. Over the years we've worked in restaurants, helped open restaurants, consulted with culinary teams, trained teams, worked with small joints and big corporations - you name it. Through La Femme Epicure, we've had the honor of working for some incredible clients. We have cooked all over the West Coast - in private homes and planes, in the middle of vineyards, in backyards, in big warehouses, under tents, up in the mountains and down by the sea. And what these experiences have given us, is a profound respect and sense of gratitude for the process of growing, preparing and cooking food for people we love. We grew up with the notion and still maintain that the dinner table is a sacred place and the only thing bigger than our love of food is our love of sharing it with others.

Quality over Quantity
We provide the very best American made cheese and cured meats along with a selection of seasonal and locally made accoutrements. Our goal is simple: Use the best stuff we can get our hands on. We have found that the finest ingredients come from small-batch producers and we, like you, know there are no substitutes for quality. We offer some incredible products and we are committed to doing them justice by curating the best possible combinations on our boards for you. Our goal is to make each of our cheese and meat makers proud; They are trusting us with their products and we are grateful for the chance to work with them.
100% American Made
This is the core of everything we stand for. We believe in supporting a 100% domestic and sustainable food culture. One that will continue to thrive for future generations to come. We are grateful for this opportunity to support the artisan cheese and cured meat making resurgence here at home. These American farmers, craftsman, butchers and master cheesemakers are defined by an unparalleled quality, dedication, and commitment to their craft. This is what we want to celebrate with our boards and share with you, by making these products readily available for you to enjoy.
