Like all great cooks, Marianne Wilson began her culinary journey at home. A nurse at the time, she took up cooking as a way to ensure that her 5 children would grow up “with the smell of bread baking.” As Marianne realized how much she loved to experiment with ingredients and recipes, cooking grew into a full-fledged hobby and then into the business known as Marianne Wilson's Complete Catering.
Since then, Marianne’s cooking experiences have provided her with a vast knowledge of all things culinary. She has appeared on television, speaking in the PBS documentary “Breads of the World” and preparing dishes on Connecticut’s Good Morning America. She has also taught courses in cooking, catering, and the history of food.
Throughout the past 32 years, Marianne has maintained her commitment to provide high quality, delicious, and unique foods to those she serves. As food preferences have changed, so has Marianne, ever expanding her repertoire and exploring new cultural and food experiences (over three months a year are spent preparing new recipes). Her love of food and willingness to try new things are evidenced in each item that comes from her kitchen in Wilton, CT.
In addition to catering, Marianne also devotes her time to various charities and organizations. She has served as President of the Child Guidance Center of Mid Fairfield, Trackside Teen center and has sat on the boards of the Elderhouse Adult Daycare Center and the Wilton Chamber of Commerce. She also happily practices her cooking talents for many of Connecticut's Not for Profit organizations.
