White Marble


Nate Wright hired Lisa Fennimore to be his sous chef at a resort in the Green Mountains of Vermont on Valentine's Day, 2006. Their paths separated and their culinary careers twisted and turned. By the time they moved in together on Valentine's Day 2020, they were certain that one day, their love and passion for delicious food and each other would lead to opening a business together. This dream was manifested in April 2021 when Marble Valley Catering was born in the kitchen of their home in Proctor, VT.

In January, 2022, Nate purchased the former Killington Avenue Deli in Rutland to become the new home base for Marble Valley Catering. The new Marble Valley Kitchen opened for lunch and sometimes dinner on February 23, 2022, offering a varied menu which reflects the eclectic population of its home city.
