Chef D. Myotte

Derna Myotte Dickson has been involved in the culinary and hospitality industry for more than 15 years. As time passed, her passion for food and entertaining deepened, eventually driving her to pursue a formal education in the Culinary Arts. Derna studied at the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, New York, where she earned a degree. After graduating, she began working for Abigail Kirsch, an elite New York catering company. There, she spent years refining her skills, while simultaneously earning a degree in Nutrition & Dietetics at New York University.  


Catering & Events By D. Myotte was founded in 2013. With the formation of this new business, Derna discovered her own personal recipe for success: catering, united with entertaining, healthy living and wellness.

Classes & Parties

If you are wondering how to celebrate your child’s next birthday, or looking for a fun party idea, consider having a hands on kids cooking party. Kids love creating and eating their own creations. Whether they are boys or girls, they will love the idea of being chefs for the day. This idea works great for sleepovers, after school clubs, etc. Give them a hat and apron and allow them to have a real hands on experience. Hats, aprons, cooking materials, ingredients, and step by step recipes will be provided.

Meal Prep

Meal prepping has become popular with health/fitness enthusiasts and busy professionals alike. It’s the perfect way to stay on track with your nutrition goals. But let’s face it: it’s hard to find time to cook one healthy home-cooked meal, let alone prepare food for days at a time.

We believe that eating healthy does not have to be bland, boring or restrictive. We pride ourselves on using the freshest ingredients to create mouth-watering, satisfying dishes.

Locally sourced, organic, always fresh ingredients are cooked the same day they are delivered to you. Our meals are perfectly portioned in microwave-safe containers, so all you have to do is heat them up.

If you have diet restrictions or special requests, we can accommodate your needs. So, what are you waiting for? Let us meal prep for you.

We have thoughtfully curated diet programs to help you reach any goal!​
