Some of my favorite things

Farm to table catering


Magnolia's Kitchen serves the most marvelous desserts! Mary's Pound Cake is a timeless, Southern classic and my son's favorite birthday cake! Mary is a consummate professional and a delight to work with!

Mary Burns specializes in delicious, eye pleasing food, always arriving exactly as promised! I've used her catering services since 2000, and she provides extensive menu choices and fresh ideas for any event. For me she has done the cooking for large assignments (a benefit tea for over 150 women), complete buffet dinners for 50, and also beautifully presented bunches and lunches. She does all with the same ease as a private Valentine's Day dinner for two. Mary makes every encounter fun, and the food memorable! I recommend her highly!        --Lavon

Mary Burns is wonderful. She always has a smile while responsibly fulfilling one’s every request so that in the tension of giving a big party, she cheers you up and makes you relax. You know that everything is in good hands. And the food! Delicious! Much of what you get from Magnolia’s Kitchen has been grown in Mary’s garden. Unlike so many caterers, Mary strives to produce healthy food. She even produces healthy, comfort food! It is therefore OK to order from her delivery service everyday—although the portions are big enough that you get two days meals in one delivery. Magnolia’s Kitchen is a great find!!!"        --Barbara, Alpharetta, GA

We decided to push the "easy" button this Thanksgiving without sacrificing the taste and quality you can only get from the sweat equity of a home-cooked meal from scratch. Once the easy button was pressed, it revealed Magnolia's Kitchen, a North Atlanta caterer with a full online menu of dishes to choose from. We placed our order and the day before Thanksgiving, the chef/owner showed up at our house with all the containers of food we had chosen online. We ordered a perfectly seasoned and grilled full turkey, macaroni and cheese, green beans with ham & onions, mashed sweet potatoes (with melted marshmallows on top), corn bread pecan stuffing, yeast rolls, chocolate truffle cake and country turkey gravy...all of it made from scratch by Mary, we just re-heated to perfection in our own kitchen the next day. Everybody at our Thanksgiving table was really impressed and went back for seconds and thirds. We've now been dipping into the leftovers for the past 3 days...and it's still every bit as amazing as it was on Thanksgiving. I think this is going to be our new "secret" tradition every year as it sure beats spending all day in the kitchen making several dishes and then having to clean it all up afterwards. From what I can see on their website, MK also offers catering for tailgate parties. We may have to try this sometime, too.--Adam C.
