Our History

Ellen Orkin and Pamela Friedman met back in 1993 when their daughters were in pre-school together. They discovered quickly that they had a common passion for everything to do with food. Ellen and Pamela began cooking together on a social basis for dinner parties, cocktail parties, barbeques and all family celebrations. Friends frequently insisted their food was so delicious they should start a business, and with this encouragement Word of Mouth Foods was born…

Pamela’s background is in law and Ellen’s is in food and restaurant management. The two have been in business together since 2002 and are still creating and delivering new and innovative dishes for their ever-expanding clients base.



Be it a corporate event, small dinner party, or a 200 person wedding, it is their goal to make their clients a guest at their own event and leave them with truly remarkable memories.
