What we do

DaH caters events of any size: weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, private  business lunches, and of course, cocktail parties and dinners in your own home. We’re happy to coordinate rentals, work with event planners and florists, as well as provide alcohol under our ABC license. Once your event begins, our experienced staff of servers and bartenders will ensure everything runs smoothly.

Families and businesses looking for weekly or occasional meals should check out our Prepared Meals. They're the perfect alternative to a personal chef or take out and make a great gift for new or growing families! Meal plans are also available for UVa students and organizations.

Our menus reflect the seasons and the diversity each one offers via the farms and producers from which we source. This contemporary style with an eye for the traditional brings a unique flair to every event.

DaH Catering is committed to using the best ingredients available from local farms and vendors. 

who we are

Ashley and Carter East operate DaH out of their commercial kitchen near the Downtown Mall. They share a passion for local food and interesting cuisine from around the world. With 25+ years of catering experience, they bring the expertise required to execute events from the casual to the elegant.

Ashley started DaH fifteen years ago as a personal chef, but shortly thereafter branched out into catering as the demand for her services increased. Now, catering represents nearly all of DaH's business. 

Ashley's training comes from working under some of the finest chefs in Charlottesville, at some the best restaurants in area, such as The Clifton Inn and The Ivy Inn. She furthered her skills at the Cookery at the Grange in Somerset, England.
