Since 2004, Zacki has provided made-from-scratch meals and other services. Now we’re cooking up a new and improved website to tell you about our new name and updated services. We’ll still offer the same quality and made-to-order fresh creations, but we’re also unveiling some new services such as our re-vamped personal chef service, cooking and courtesy classes, kitchen and closet re-imagining, and custom gift baskets for small companies and individuals in the NC Triangle region. Following a career as a New York food stylist and restaurateur, Zacki Murphy has returned home to preach the “gospel of barbecue” and share farm-to-table memories and recipes from her NC childhood.
The first time I started making baskets professionally was when my friend, Martha Stewart, asked me to join in several of her seminars. My part was about Southern Baskets and how to put them together. Later, I helped her assemble a hundred baskets for Ralph Lauren's personal Christmas gifts. They were made of sturdy twisted vines, lined with his horse blankets and filled with delicious condiments and Christmas cookies. After that, I created Zacki's Southern Heritage Basket and a Gift for a Nature Lover (bird basket) for Martha Stewart's Christmas book ... and I have been a basket girl ever after.
