In the early 1980s, after traveling the whole of continental North America in her VW van, rumor has it Susan sailed to the Nantucket on the lid of a lobster pot with nothing but a shucking knife and her trusty dog, Jack. In no time Susan had built a kitchen, enlisted a few friends, and Nantucket Clambake Company was steaming lobsters all over the island. 

Word of Susan's skills as a chef and party planner spread quickly across Nantucket and beyond. It wasn't long before her clients began demanding more than just tasty clambakes. With the founding of Susan M. Warner Catering, Susan expanded her business to include cocktail parties, served dinner, brunches, raw bars, and nearly everything in between.
