About

Ready for a wild ride?

When’s the last time you’ve had a real food experience, a flavor epiphany? The last time you were taken on the roller coaster ride of your life...left speechless (maybe a curse word...or two slipped or a couple of moans and groans) smiling like the Cheshire Cat, fumbling for your phone to take the picture you know will have your friends jealous for days...

Monet’s is here! Let’s get you on that ride! 

My dream is simply this: to provide an experience that ends with the warmth you feel in a hug from your loved ones. I want to make everyone who I put a plate in front of smile, embrace them, and make sure they feel the love every time the fork hits their mouth. The chance to share my art with the world is so close I can almost taste it...can you?

Monet’s...?

Monet’s is my opportunity to bring my love out and display it for everyone to see. It is a small catering service that will provide both the savory and sweet for events, small parties, and private dinners of ALL kinds (I mean it...no judgement or discrimination of ANY kind!) My end goal is to create a platform so large that Chefs of all kinds and minds can have an opportunity to collaborate and plate what’s in their hearts as I have been so fortunate to do. Monet’s will provide everything from comforting home cooking to elevated dishes that will all come from the heart and soul of Chef Monet Pugh (That’s me!)

The Process...

Right now Monet’s is a baby...my baby. It still needs nurturing and support to get it to reach it’s true potential. Small platforms (farmers markets, festivals, fairs, community events) are where we will be making our mark at the moment but consistent social media outreach is a priority.. after all, that’s where we are in this world now... 

Involving myself in the community and support of other artists is the first step of many in building this brand. I currently collaborate with The Artwell Creative, a creative design collective consisting of amazing models and artists of all kinds that are pushing to build their own brand, founded by Christina Artwell in a Brooklyn, NY. As a collective, we put together events to promote artists and their talents and my role as Executive Chef is to provide the food for those events. I also have the pleasure of promoting other food venders and Chefs we meet along the way. 

Simply me...

Just a Culinary School grad from Brooklyn, NY who has been working in restaurants of all different cuisines and the realization of who I am and what I love was never so apparent until I honed in on my skills. Simply put, I love food! if we’re taking it to the extreme, I live for the art of cooking! My heart is on every plate and my soul in every bowl. The joy of watching anyone eat my food and smile throughout their meal or extend their arms for a hug to show their appreciation makes every bit of this dream worth fighting another day ..even when those dreams seem to be so far from being reality.

Risks and challenges

Everything worth fighting for will have a risk and struggle attached. I’m realistic. No one said this would be easy but, then again, this wouldn’t be worth it if it was.

The challenges are going to be ensuring that everyone I collaborate with or provide my services to understands how serious I take my career, responsibilities to the public, and how far I’ll go to provide the experience my clients deserve. Not everyone will agree with my methods and thought processes but as long as my expectations are met, my customers’ will be exceeded...ALWAYS.

Disappointment and failure are not in my vocabulary!
