A collaboration between Chef Marc Derego, Kristen Rogers and Sally Huntington.
Marc DeRego: Head Chef, Co-Founder, Farmer
Growing up in a landmark New England restaurant, Marc learned to cook before most kids learned to tie their shoes. His life has revolved around food ever since. He foraged, fished and cooked his way across the Pacific Northwest in his twenties – shaping his philosophy for fresh, local, and sustainable ingredients. After returning to New England, Marc spent years growing and cooking the best produce and products available on the South Coast. He worked at the Back Eddy under Chris Schlesinger, and later under his brother Aaron DeRego, while learning the art of pickling from Dan George. Marc has also been a representative to Slow Food's Terra Madre Food & Farming Conference in Torino, Italy, studied meat and cheese with Persimmon Provisions Butchery, and even toured Puerto Rico's Pork Highway. All in all, it's been what Marc calls "a life well fed."
Kristen Rogers: Chef, Co-Founder, Farmer
Kristen gives the phrase "farm-to-table" a whole new meaning. From growing hydroponic vegetables in local greenhouses to studying the intricacies of grapes at Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery, Kristen has developed an encyclopedic knowledge for all things food. Working for Chris Schlesinger at the Back Eddy introduced Kristen to the importance of fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, and taught her how to build relationships with the best farmers and fishermen in the South Coast food community. Now that her main focus is S&P, she can take pleasure in seeing the full extent of her food know-how. From choosing and sourcing the produce to cooking and serving the final product, Kristen's greatest reward is witnessing the delighted reactions as people share her love for great food.
Sally Huntington: Event Planner, Crew Chief, Founder
Sally's lifelong career in food got its start at her uncle's Irish Restaurant, where she worked her way through college waiting tables, tending bar. After years working for restaurants & catering companies across New England, Sally learned a thing or two about planning a good party. She saw how the smallest detail can make or break an event, and how important it is bring people together around good food and great company. Driven by a philosophy to create atmospheres that revere the food itself and honor where it comes from, Sally decided to start Smoke & Pickles as a founding partner. Nowadays, it's her job to coordinate everything from the timeline and site plan, to rentals, tents, and of course –

Thank YOU, Sally! We had such a great time on Sunday, thanks to everyone helping out so much and making everything happen. We truly appreciate how organized, helpful, and kind you and your staff were. And everyone absolutely loved the food! People were commenting on it all day (and even the next day...). Jed and I are heading to my parents' place tonight to have leftovers and I can't wait!
Our guests have been raving about the incredible and creative food that you prepared. Many people commented that they had never had such tasty, fresh food at a wedding. We, of course, felt the same way, but it's nice to hear it from others.

You all did an amazing job - EVERYONE loved the food and special it was! A tough task and challenge considering a number of foodies in the crowd! ...we are going to miss you in our lives.
Sally & Co. are truly amazing. First the food was amazing. Their philosophy on using fresh, local ingredients pays off. Wedding guests went out of there way to tell me it was the most delicious food they ever had at any wedding. Secondly the service. Sally goes above and beyond her duties as a caterer. She will help you make sure that everything gets set up the way you want it.
Marc and his cook staff brought our idea of a "sexy farmers market" to life through the food. Every item on our menu burst with individual flavor and a seasonal freshness that can only be found by foraging local farms. The service staff are friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable and down right fun while still maintaining 5 star standards.
Erica and Jason
Sally, your insights and creativity are rare talents. The evening went exactly as we envisioned. The entire Smoke & Pickles team created such a welcoming and relaxed environment for our guests.
Thank you so much Sally, Marc and Kristen! We never could of imagined anything better for our wedding feast! Everyone was so amazed by the food and service. All the preliminary help, care and thoughtfulness was very appreciated. Your staff was so fun to work with, we will never forget any of you!
Kristen and Ryan
Smoke and Pickles is absolutely fantastic. Picture it: A wedding hosted on a small farm on The Cape. We have 170 guests from 4 different countries who are celebrating a gorgeous wedding day in the middle of A FIELD. Most caterers would run away from the challenge of preparing refined wedding cuisine in such rustic conditions, but not Smoke and Pickles! Sally and her crew prepared one of the most beautiful and delicious meals I've had the pleasure of enjoying in 7 years of wedding planning. They run a tight ship with regard to quality of service, excellence in staffing and professionalism in execution. The food looked as good as it tasted and the guests were blown away by the refined-casual cuisine (the suckling pig was really what put the meal over-the-top!) Thank you to Sally and the S+P Crew for making this wedding absolutely perfect! I sincerely look forward to working with you again very soon!
The entire vibe was exactly what we had imagined for our gathering. We went with a pig roast and fresh salmon done in a very classy but comfortable way. My new mother in law said it best, she enjoyed 'our feast and celebration.' I would not hesitate to recommend them for any gathering ecspecially weddings if you want to be remembered as the wedding with the good food!
Absolutely amazing. Not only was this the best wedding food we have ever had, but it was one of the best meals we have ever had - hands down! Every guest at our wedding has been talking about the food non-stop since the wedding and they just keep telling us how much they loved it! And Sally was amazing to work with, every step along the way. She even brought us oysters while we took our photos after the ceremony so we wouldn't miss out! She handled all the rentals and the tent (we were in a DIY-type space) and really acted as a wedding planner/coordinator for us for the 8 months leading up to our wedding. I could not possibly offer a higher recommendation of these guys. They are simply THE BEST!
We are relaxing out on Nantucket but can't stop thinking about how much we loved every moment of our wedding. We have had so many people tell us it was the best wedding food they have ever eaten. We truly loved every bite! We couldn't have asked for anything more! It was just perfect. Thank you!
Love, Nina and Peter Blain!
Thank you - all of you - for an amazing job! Several people commented it was the best wedding they had been to - and a lot of that is due to your attention to detail. Thank you!!
I wanted to thank you again for the work you did. It was a great party, and everyone had a wonderful time. The food was spectacular!!
Thank you for everything you did! I loved the food and we've received so many compliments about it. You and your staff did such amazing work, I could never thank you enough. Next time I have an event that needs catering, Smoke and Pickles will be my first call :)
Thank you so much for helping our wedding be so special and wonderful. We got comments from so many people of how great the food was and how the staff was so nice. I even over heard some one say "I go to a lot of weddings and this is the best food I ever had!". We can't thank you enough but... thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
We recently used Smoke & Pickles as our wedding caterer and they are absolutely top notch! Simply THE BEST food and service we’ve ever experienced. Everything about their food was perfect from the deliciously pickled appetizers to the main course as well as the smoke grilled preparation and presentation was awe-inspiring. From the beginning we could tell that Sally Huntington was no ordinary caterer. She went far out to her way to accommodate our budget, took our wishes into account at every turn and made wonderful suggestions on the meal choices. In the end, it was truly all about satisfying us and our gathering of 130 family members and friends, every one of whom are still raving about the food and service a month later. Having done past events at the location (The Overbrook House near Cape Cod, MA) Sally and her group were able to aid in logistics and even helped with the set up of the chairs for the ceremony and in the reception tent to ensure that the day ran smoothly. Sally is largely responsible for the “success” of the evening. She absolutely knows her stuff and her positive attitude is infectious. Her team was truly wonderful and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We cannot say enough about how much we appreciate having someone like her involved and consider her to be a part of our extended family. Smoke & Pickles uses only the best, locally-sourced foods and provides the absolute highest possible level of service with true genuine feeling. Top that off with their uncanny ability to make every event feel as unique as the participants and it’s easy to see why we would recommend them to anyone who needs catering for any event! You can tell when someone really enjoys their work as it shows through in every detail of their actions. That aptly applies to the Smoke & Pickles team. We are forever grateful.
