Sally's introduction to culinary arts began at Dover High School with her instructor David Coons. She developed a love for cooking and creating her own dishes. With the opportunity to work under Lorrie Grossman, a local kosher caterer in Dover, her education in Kosher style catering began. She started her own business and honed her craft doing Kosher and Non-Kosher events ranging from 25 to 500 people. As early as 2012 Mezzanine Catering LLC was born. Mezzanine has since opened a production kitchen in Dover on Dover Point Road.
Sally grew up in Dover, NH and married her husband Chuck, also from Dover. They raised 2 sons, Zach and Eli.
It’s no great mystery where Zach developed his passion for food, with some of his fondest memories coming from spending time in the kitchen with family. Following high school, he attended Johnson & Wales University, graduating with degrees in Baking and Pastry Arts, Food Service Management, and Entrepreneurship. After college, Zach has managed several different restaurant concepts, most notably a pair of local Panera Bread Bakery Cafes. Although he has served in a consultant role with Mezzanine for some time, he is excited to be following in his mother’s footsteps and embracing the family business in a full-time capacity.
Zach currently resides in Lee, NH with his wife Jessica, son James, and dog Etta. When not catering, you can find him seasonally at the local ice arena or tending to their extensive greenhouse and gardens.
A Seacoast native, Brittany traces her love of cooking and creating to her Grandmother’s kitchen. She still recalls fond memories from watching her cook family dinners and even getting to help her with some of her special treats. After high school Brittany began working full time in the kitchen and attended Le Cordon Bleu in Cambridge, graduating in 2017. With an externship at the Joinery in Newmarket and several years experience at The Galley Hatch, Brittany joined the Mezzanine team in early 2019.
She brings a passion for great food and commitment to fresh seasonal products. When she’s not in the kitchen, you can find her exploring the mountains with her dog Archie.
Born and raised on the Seacoast in New Hampshire, Victoria brings over 12 years of customer service and client relations to the Mezzanine team. Weddings are a great passion of Victoria’s; she takes great pride in helping couples see their food vision through to a reality, and particularly enjoys getting to know her clients as she helps them plan their perfect menu for an unforgettable wedding celebration!
There’s no detail too small nor question too minor to warrant a quick response for her clients! Her favorite part of the planning process is bringing in clients for their food tasting, where she gets to know her couples on a more personal level.
When not working she enjoys spending time with her adorable nephew, Noah, and being outdoors with her dog Annabelle.

Living and working throughout the Seacoast of NH and Maine, Courtney has always had a passion for Baking & Pastry. It Began with her time in Culinary Arts at Portsmouth HS, and continued through her education at The Connecticut Culinary Institute. After graduating, an internship with the acclaimed Jacques Fine European Pastries grew into a full time role as a Baker and Cake Decorator. Four years later, she joined the team at Beach Pea Baking Co. in Kittery ME where she continued her work with cakes as well as refining her knowledge of pastry. As the Pastry Chef for Mezzanine Catering she brings both a wealth of knowledge and a great deal of finesse to everything from wedding cakes and specialty desserts to breakfast pastry and scratch breads.
When she’s not working on her confections, Courtney enjoys spending time her 2 cats and skiing in the winter as much as she loves walking the beach in the summer. She has an extensive (and impressive) collection of sea glass and other treasures from the ocean.

With over a decade spent in the hospitality industry, most recently managing a seacoast based restaurant, Ashley brings a wide variety of knowledge and experience to the Mezzanine Private & Corporate Events Team. When working with her, you will find she meets each event with excitement and strives to make the planning process effortless(if not a little fun!). Ashley especially loves creating beautiful food and beverage displays, inspired by her clients ideas.
Growing up in Lebanon, NH, Ashley has a great appreciation of nature, the ocean being what brought her the seacoast in 2016. In her free time, you will find her by the water, listening to music, or supporting some of her favorite local establishments!
Growing up locally in Dover, Eli found his interest in food from taking courses in high school, experimenting in the kitchen and sharing food with family and friends. After attending the University of New Hampshire, graduating with a degree in communication, he spent time helping to launch brands and marketing campaigns across the seacoast while managing sales for a local brewery, finding a love for craft spirits and beer. He is excited to bring his passion for marketing and design to the Mezzanine team.
When not behind the computer or baking bread, you can find Eli reading about food and agriculture, trying new cocktails, or spending time with his wife Sarah at their home in Newmarket.
