The Ripe Choice was created by Tammy Lipps, a professionally-trained chef with a passion for re-imagining the experience of food.
Our full-service catering boutique serves deliciously fresh food. Recipes include time-tested favorites as well as new flavor profiles created specifically for your event. We strive to transform fresh, farm grown and locally sourced ingredients into amazingly delicious food. The result is a very personal reflection of your palette, sophistication and regard for your guests.
In 2020, we found the perfect location to grow the business, relocating to Lake County to open The Ripe Choice Farm and Catering. The barn event space, organic field crops, orchard, and vineyard offer endless possibilities and fit perfectly with our sensibilities and desire to take The Ripe Choice to the next level. This drove our move Lake County.
When it comes to food, Chef Tammy’s passion for one-on-one collaboration makes every event unique and instantly memorable. She’s helped create everything from beautiful weddings, to high-impact events for the entertainment industry. Consider us for anything that involves food, including:
- Private parties – on or off premises
