We had a perfect tasting menu developed by Chefs Patrick and Jasmine for an intimate birthday dinner in our home. They were flexible with our family's needs, prompt, professional and friendly. I am looking forward to the next occasion.
Pat and Jasmine are incredibly talented at their craft. When they create a menu, they don’t just draw from their years of experience but they create their dish’s using a personal touch by understanding their clients vision and deliver an awesome experience for their customers. I wish they came to Charlotte more cause I would use them for all my events.
Patrick and Jasmine catered our event and provided a wonderful experience with friends and family. The cuisine was simply amazing. True artists!
Damascus Culinary Concepts thanks you for your business! Please leave us a comment or review on services provided.
More About Our Chefs
Chefs Patrick Rafferty and Jasmine Ysordia have been working in the culinary industry for over 40 years combined. The two met in Beverly Hills, California working for renowned Michelin star chef, Thomas Keller. Patrick was part of Keller’s opening team, and Sous Chef to Bouchon Beverly Hills, and Jasmine a Le Cordon Bleu graduate. The two worked under Keller’s tutelage for a combination of four years. After Bouchon, they relocated to Winston Salem, NC, Patrick’s hometown.
Arriving in Winston Salem the pair went into catering and restaurant management. They catered events for Maya Angelou’s 85th birthday hosted by Oprah Winfrey, NC Fine Wine Awards Gala, Wake Forest’s graduation with over 700 attendees, Fundraisers like Heartball and Furball, Weddings, and more.
In August 2019, the pair decided to open their own catering business, "Damascus Culinary Concepts", providing the Triad with premier catering and private dining events. When deciding on a business name the chefs were inspired by Damascus blades. A technique of binding iron and steel to create a not only beautiful pattern but knives reputed to be tough, resistant to shattering, and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge. A yin and yang team, Patrick and Jasmine work synergistically together to cater for your dream event. “DCC is a platform for us to express our values and knowledge toward the industry, where we can set our own standards and give clients the quality and execution they deserve”.
