Executive Chef & Partner

Andy Borgmeier

Andy developed an interest of the fast-paced Culinary Arts Field through his first job in high school at a Wholesale Seafood Market in the Fulton Fish Market in New York City. During this time Andy acquired an affinity for the Chefs he met while delivering fresh seafood to twenty-five plus restaurants. From this first learning experience Andy decided to take his interest to a higher level and enrolled at Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina. Within his first four weeks of schooling Andy was literally “blown away” when Hurricane Hugo hit in 1989. From here Andy took an opportunity to extern at the Rihga Hotel in New York City and then finished his studies at the Johnson & Wales in Providence, Rhode Island. With a desire to return to the Low Country Andy moved to Hilton Head Island to be the Chef Tournant at the Hyatt Regency, training under Executive Chef Felenczak. Here Andy worked as Chef de Garde Manger, learning the skill of Ice Carving and later as Banquet Chef where he served groups up to 1500 guests and had the opportunity to cook for President Bill Clinton under the watchful eyes of the Secret Service. In order to pursue his love of catering Andy seized an opportunity to become the Executive Chef for Catering Concepts then as Celebrations Catering & Events, now SERG Catering & Special Events. During his 23 year plus tenure, Andy has developed a State-of-the-Art Show Kitchen, has become the only catering chef on the island accredited by the Sustainable Seafood Initiative and began conducting the island’s first series of hands-on, interactive cooking classes at his Learning Kitchen.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, my culinary journey began with an insatiable passion for the rich flavors of my homeland. In 1995, I ventured to the States, honing my skills in a Jamaican restaurant in Queens, NY. Over 15 years ago, I made my way to Hilton Head Island, where I joined the team at Signature Catering and Events. As a culinary enthusiast, I blend Jamaican influences with contemporary flair. From the heart of the Caribbean to the coasts of Hilton Head, I continue to share the love for good cuisine, one dish at a time.

Fueled by the creativity and endless possibilities each event brings to the table she is constantly inspired to bring new ideas to light. Outside of my dream job,
you’ll find me snuggling (or chasing!) my two German Shepherds, Ryder & Fudge or laughing in the yard with my husband Michael. “I love being a part of something so monumental in a couple’s life. There are very few events in a person’s life that stand out as much as a wedding and I get to have a hand in creating that memory.”
