The Ripe Choice catering company creates unique menus for private dinner parties, screenings, gallery openings, red carpet affairs, backyard BBQs, beach picnics, weddings and corporate events. Although The Ripe Choice specializes in custom catering and creates whatever food the client requests, the team’s go-to culinary style is California healthy and seasonal cooking—using what is good when it’s at its best.

Cooking, creating menus and working with food had always been a deep-rooted passion for the mother of three. It’s been about a year and a half since she opened her storefront kitchen on the north end, just steps from Highland Avenue.
Dressed in a white chef coat and her blond hair tied back in a ponytail, Lipps is the star of this nearly three-minute YouTube video. In it, she talks about her business — how she uses the freshest ingredients, picked personally from local sources, and caters for private parties and cooks and delivers meals for homes.
“I really enjoy helping people with their vision for their event,” she says, “being able to help them bring that whole package together.”
At the video’s conclusion, you can’t help but feel like you just met her in person.
