robins nest catering

gourmet fare LLC × effingham, il


Located in Effingham, Illinois, Robins Nest is a catering company dedicated to providing a unique experience with our made-from-scratch gourmet foods.

In early 2016 we started a catering company in Reno Nevada which grew quickly, prompting us to search for restaurant space.  During our search, we realized we would prefer the feel of a smaller community closer to family, and decided to move to Effingham.  

Having grown up on meat and potatoes, our travels during our military experiences, sides jobs, varied schooling, and culinary-seeking adventures ignited in us a deep passion for the culinary experience.  Our love of preparing and enjoying gourmet and innovative food led us to believe we could, and should, share our passion with as many foodies as possible.  Further pushing us towards catering was Thaddeus’ propensity to cook for a small army, despite there being only two of us.  Our love of food and desire to delight others provided the impetus to start a small boutique catering company specializing in made-from-scratch gourmet food personalized for the people we are creating it for. 

Our goal with every aspect of cooking is to bring out the full flavor of every ingredient and present this in a unique and fanciful manner.  We do not limit ourselves to a set menu, but prefer to explore different cuisines and cooking methods, giving us the flexibility to customize your event down to the last special detail.  We are continually seeking out new sources for quality ingredients, such as fresh produce, locally sourced meats and grains, specialty meats and cheeses and are committed to providing only the best culinary experience for our local community.
