“Hannah is a gem! Her easy nature, thoughtful eye and graceful energy from start to finish are appreciated by all who engage with her. For 8 years, we have worked together producing events and I have watched as Hannah skillfully manages her crew, the client and all the associated vendors with an organized but relaxed approach that is effective and appears effortless. Her eye for design and details leads to magic. I wish all of our events included Hannah!”
— Stacy Brenner. Founder, Broadturn Farm

The Lake & Co. team is not just staff, they are a family of friends.
Even though Lake and Co. is new, the team has been working together for over 10 years doing large and small events across Maine.
Without the support of our ‘co.’ we would not be where we are today. Their hard work, amazing talent and joie de vie are what make each event a success.

About us

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.
