The professional life of Elizabeth Stone started… by accident. You could say that when she began her career as a food professional, she fell backwards into an industry that she can now truly call her passion. After finishing college, Elizabeth was confident that she could conquer the business world, only to later decide that she really wanted to go to medical school. After returning to school to undertake this new endeavor, it happened: a dear friend adopted a baby. With nothing to offer as a gift, she offered as a favor to provide food for the christening. The following day, a phone call came from one of her guests that changed her life and the lives of many others forever. “Do you cater?” The answer to that question what was the beginning of an incredible life of building a very successful, multi million dollar, award-winning catering and events company.
As the next few years passed, Elizabeth’s mother’s house became the catering kitchen. Every friend she had learned to cook and deliver food. Finally, on a cold December morning in 1992, her mother challenged her to pursue this passion and move into a real catering commissary. The following March, The Stone Kitchen moved to a commercial kitchen, and the journey began.
Over the next twenty years, Elizabeth and The Stone Kitchen team catered over 15,000 events ranging from small seated dinner for the Secretary of State and Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, to Cocktail Reception for the Vice President of the United States to catering four events simultaneously for a major bank in four cities, not including Houston, each for 1500 people.
In the fall of 2012, The Stone Kitchen team decided to rebrand the company to better encompass the company’s 25 years in business and the extensive growth of the company and the community it serves. Silver Stone Events was born. Among the company’s numerous clients, Silver Stone is proud to be the exclusive caterer for the Asia Society Texas Center and all the Dignity Memorial facilities in the Houston area.
