One Boise business owner traded in her background in engineering to follow her real passion: food.
In 2012, Catherine Wojick left her career as an aerospace engineer to launch her business, Savory N’ Sweet. However, her love for culinary arts started long before her business did.
“Gosh when we moved here in 1991, I was pulling my two kids around in a wagon with rolled up little menus that I had made banana bread, pumpkin bread and we would put them on everyone’s doors throughout southeast Boise,” Wojick said.
Savory N’ Sweet all about charcuterie
She describes her business as “light-hearted catering and pastries” but recently she decided to get rid of her plate and buffet services to focus on charcuterie boards and grazing tables.
“I really loved doing this, creating these,” Wojick said about her day-to-day work.
Depending on the time of year, you may find one of her homemade classics in one of your orders. She told Idaho News 6 she tries to switch up her orders, especially for repeat customers.
“When I do my Christmas Eve ones I’ll do all of my homemade peanut clusters they’ll have my bizcochos,” she said, referring to a Mexican holiday cookie.
During a normal calendar year, Wojick asks for 48 hours’ notice on all orders, but with the holiday season here she is booked through almost mid-January.
Savory N’ Sweet does have its own storefront & it shares space with Wojick’s other business geared to antique goods & provisions. Some of the items are used in Wojick’s work and she encourages people to check them out & take something home.
