Our Team

      We believe that memories begin at a table surrounded by family, friends, and lots of laughter; a table that seems to invite you to sit down and relax, where you can enjoy a meal that makes you feel at home.

      Robin Getchell-Smith

      I have worked in the catering industry for many years. When we moved to the Adirondack region of New York and realized the opportunity here, I was so excited. I have run my business with integrity and a real personal touch. Always striving to create the event my clients have dreamed of. Each of our clients are unique. It is my job to work with each of them and create an event that speaks to who they are and celebrates their style.  Commitment to detail and a personal touch, creating menus that make our clients feel as though they are “at home” are our goals.  We look forward to serving you, your family, and your friends soon.

      Mark Smith

      I am Robin’s right-hand man (and a huge Phish fan, just had to add that in!).  Robin works with clients to plan the perfect menus and events.  I am there to make sure we have everything we need to make those visions come to life.  We are always looking for that next big idea to make our company stand out.  The Bar Car (our awesome renovated vintage trailer) came to life in the summer of 2015 and has been a hit ever since! Our kitchen trailer (born in the summer of 2017) makes it possible to go just about anywhere.  We are able to bring a full kitchen on-site when required, decorated with bistro lights and our logo!  It’s Amazing!! We love chatting with our clients about their vision because it inspires so many creative ideas.

      Susan Garth

      Susan began her professional cooking career in Saratoga Springs in 1993, and has been “cheffing” ever since. After helping open two restaurants in Santa Barbara, CA and TriBeCa, NYC she finally took the plunge, co-owning and operating her own natural foods restaurant in upstate NY until 2014. She’s taught countless cooking classes, and still enjoys working with a handful of select private clients.

      Susan attended the Kushi Institute in Becket, MA, holds a certification in Metabolic Typing and is an avid student and advocate of current clean eating research and food trends. When she’s not in the kitchen she can be found walking, hiking, boating or swimming, studying holistic nutrition and the mind-body connection, and hanging out with her 9 year old daughter. 

      Susan works with our clients to create the perfect custom menus for their events. Susan is a great addition to the Deliciously Different team.  We are so happy to have her on board.

      Lori Green

      One of our founding staff members, Lori brings with her a great knowledge of the food industry, as a manager and server.  After meeting Lori at one of our local restaurants, we just knew she needed to be part of the Deliciously Different team!  Her knowledge of the industry is priceless!  She can adapt to any situation on site and is able to step in wherever she is needed. 

      Her personality is the perfect fit for Deliciously Different. She is able to handle anything that is thrown her way. 

      Kerry Carlise

      Kerry has been an integral part of our team for the last 5 years.  She might not admit it, but Kerry is a true artist when it comes to arranging foods.  She brings her creativity to each event along with her infectious laughter; she is always sporting a smile!  Her inspiration shines through when executing beautiful displays on site.

      Rachael McMahon

      Rachael is an insurance professional and has worked in the bar industry for 9 years. In 2018, she found herself missing the creative outlet mixology provided in the bar business. She started working with Deliciously Different after meeting Robin through networking and decided bartending weddings was a great way to utilize her skills behind the bar without giving up her career. Rachael enjoys crafting specialty cocktails for our couples and their guests on their wedding day.  She is the perfect addition to our team, providing a fun and energetic vibe at events.  Rachael will ensure that your custom bar experience is flawless!


      Where are you from?

      We both grew up on Long Island. Robin grew up in Babylon. She loved growing up in that amazing small town. Mark grew up in Rocky Point and his family still lives in that area.  We moved to the Glens Falls area of NY in 2006 and now reside in Queensbury.


      Where are some of your favorite places?

      Camping with our family holds some of our most fond memories. We own an Airstream now, which we love, but when our children were young, our best memories were in the broken-down old trailers we had out on the beaches of Long Island. Montauk beach camping was our favorite thing to do with the family! Maybe that’s where the idea for our bar car came from!


      What do you love most about where you live now?

      Mark and I do love this area and are so happy to be surrounded by the beauty of this amazing place.  We love boating, hiking, skiing and anything to get us outside. Our time is limited in the nice weather, but we do make the most of our free time, taking advantage of relaxing on the lake even if it is just for a sunset cruise on a beautiful summer evening.


      What is your favorite part of catering events?

      Our favorite part of working on events is our initial meeting with our new clients. At this moment, most of our potential clients seem overwhelmed with the daunting tasks for their upcoming event. After our initial meeting, it is like a sigh of relief for our clients! Our clients always seem to take a deep breath and realize they have come to the right kitchen. Having our clients leave our office with such complete confidence in what we can create is priceless!


      What kind of events does Deliciously Different cater?

      We cater all types of events. Weddings, social celebrations, corporate events, and many more.  If it’s a celebration or gathering, we’d love to work with you!


      Do you have sample menus and what is your pricing?

      We create custom menus for each and every event based on your style, favorite foods, and preferred price-point. Contact us if you’re interested and we’re happy to provide a custom quote for you.


      What are your favorite flowers?



      Coffee or tea?

      Robin is coffee – unless I’m under the weather then tea: plain!

      Mark is coffee – always coffee!


      What are your favorite foods?

      Our favorite food are the ones that we are sharing with family and friends.  Everything tastes better when shared or created by those closest to us.


      we’ll customize & create the perfect event menu for you...
