Hannah Lake White has been in love with food and hands on design since her first job at a small food shop and farm in Phippsburg, Maine. With a background in theater and communications, events are the eclectic marriage of putting on a show, designed around a perfect meal. For the past 8 years she has been dedicated to refining her skills as an event coordinator and catering manager. Her credits also include GM to multiple recognized restaurants in Portland, where she thrived in her love of fine dining and hospitality. She is the queen of putting on the best parties while being the mastermind behind the many intricate details.
Charles White is a Vermont native from a small ski town. Starting at the bottom like all true chefs, Charles quickly went from dishwasher to line cook at a young age. After spending his freshman year at Emerson in Boston, Charles discovered his true passion for cooking and decided to enroll in the acclaimed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. Coming to Maine 15 years ago, Charles has had the pleasure of being Sous Chef to Alison Cummings of the Star Fish Grill and Lee Skawinski of Vignola/Cinque Terre. He then joined Hannah as Executive Chef to a well loved company of the west end in 2014 till 2017. He is proud to be executive chef of Lake & Co., a place where his belief in using the best ingredients to let a dish shine for itself is at the heart of the meal.
After being at the helm of one of Maine’s adored and successful catering companies, we were ready to take the next step to make our own vision become a reality. In 2018 we launched our full service catering company, Lake & Co., focusing on our future where success is embedded in our hard work ethic, an endless dedication to quality ingredients, and a strong relationship with local farmers.
